Greetings all,

I recently sold a PC and purchased another with every intention of arrogently placing my old storage hard drive in my new beast and accessing all my essential files without having to spend hours transferring from DVD's, like a mortal. However my rather devious plan didn't work as intended, but being rather efficient I had all 250gb worth of data on a vast selection of DVD's.

The only problem is I used a piece of software for a single group of files included with Nero called BackItUp which turns out is pants. I backed up a number of video files on 8 DVD's and one of them seems to have gone tits up, the files (6 of them) can be viewed in windows media player, with sound, I just cannot specify which segment to view using the traditional 'timebar' contraption (Forgive my lack of computing vocabulary).

Needless to say I want this power regained. I thought I'd simply import the files into Windows Movie Maker and regenerate the files, however this doesn't work due to lack of indexation or something. Similarly, I tried out this video editing software I acquired with my ASUS video card and get the same kind of problem.

Anyway, my knowledge of video editing isn't quite as formidable as it could be, but I'm willing to stake my reputation on the assumption if I can view the movies with sound then surely there must be someway of thrusting it into some video editing software and getting the desired result. Could anyone turn me towards such software? I'm penniless and have a scandalous internet connection so preferably no $600/600MB type software.

Cheers

Lets back up. Why doesnt the old hard drive work on your new computer? What happens when you connect it and boot up your computer? Is that drive not visible?

It appeared in computer management as a foreign drive that I could not access, and my search for help yielded no results. Irrelvant now though since it has been formatted and contains the files it did previously, save for these 6 that I would like to repair.

Well as for repairing the videos, that is unfortunately out of my realm of expertise.
