Wow... I'm really surprised that none of the experts responded yet but I'm sure they will after I give you my opinion so here goes... First off, WMM is primarily intended to create a movie from scatch and does not work well, in attempting to import and edit, a movie that has been made by some other software and is extremely large to boot (like your converted DVD movie would be). So, if I were you, I would try two different methods. The first would be to try and capture "only" the segments you want with WMM via the "capture from video device" option. This method serves two purposes. First, it keeps the file size smaller and WMM can usually handle the capture stream. The other method would be to use some other software (like Nero) that is better suited for DVD type editing. Now, since I've used Nero v6.6 for ages, I can't specifically recommend any free ones for you so maybe someone else will chime in with a suggestion. And finally, did your DVD burner come with any software that might have DVD editing capabilities?
