Can I transfer and edit home movies from my Sony Handycam DVD camcorder discs and then burn to DVD with this item?
I currently, and have only used Windows Movie Maker, and this will not accept footage from a disc.

I don't have the answer but I would like to know the answer.I have tried converting Sony mini disks to a format that can be used by Movie Maker but the results are poor with pixalated images. Can antone provide the answer.

There is definitely a file option to select "Import DVD Camcorder Disc" (or something along those lines). Trial versions of Vegas are quite often given away with computer magazines so I suggest you look out for one of those and see if it suits your needs...

Yes I can confirm you can import from a DVD camcorder. Click on 'file' and then 'import' and you'll see the import from DVD Camcorder option. Alternatively, try the 'show me how' tutorial that will start when you first load Sony Vegas. This will take you through, step by step until you have captured your footage.

A freeware program called Auto Gordian Knot (AGK) will convert VOB files to AVI which can then be picked up by Movie Maker.

I recommend checking out Magix Movie Edit Pro v14 Plus. A fully functional 30 day free trial version can be downloaded from I have used earlier versions of this software for a number of years having tried many others and found this to be the best. The software has loads of features, is excellent value at £60 and most importantly - it works. It also supports HD (AVCHD) camcorders and Blu-ray discs. There is an excellent forum with some very knowledgeable users. There is also a standard version (no HD support) available for £40, but I recommend the Plus version if your budget will stretch.

I have created several copies of a movie with audio and rendered on Sony Vegas (PAL DVD) (mpeg concept2). Finished off in Architect and burned to DVD +R. Works on 2 out of 3 of my DVD players and on Media Player on my PC. However, some of the recipients of the disc cannot open either with their own DVD players or on Media Player. One comment has been the need to finalize before burning. However, I am reliably informed that there is no need to finalize on DVD +/-R with Architect. Any comments? Thanks. Kathy Webster
