What I would like to do is use Windows Movie Maker to edit a DVD I have recorded from the TV which has been recorded on a DVD recorder. I have saved the DVD in its normal format onto my hard drive, but I am unable to covert it into a format WMM can understand. Currently it comes up as about 7 files (we broke it into 3 chapters on the DVD recorder) and these are .BUP and .IFO files
To be move precise I would like to take about 2 minutes of the DVD and discard the rest then upload the result to the web
1: Am I breaking the law? (In the UK)
2: Am I using the right software
Where should I turn next
Any help or thoughts would be appreciated

p.s. I am running windows XP Media Centre if this helps

Am I breaking the law? (In the UK)

quite possibly, but that depends upon who you ask, are you hurting the copyright owner or helping them?

common law/common sense/fair use

Am I using the right software

probably not, super is a good allinone converter


all this video stuff is rocket science/brain surgery tho

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
