      Hi Friends!

      I have a Hitachi camcorder that makes mini DVD’s. It is fun to use, but not the greatest.

      I used to be able to use WinRip to download from my DVD player into Moviemaker. The system froze and now the dvd player in my PC won’t recognize the mini dvd-r’s! It’s like there is a selection list and these aren’t selected anymore. I tried to use a PC restore point but nogo.

      Is there a place in Windows media Player I can find a list of what it can read and tell it to turn on the Mini DVD-R’s again? 



      Please chime in if you have experience with this equipment or advice, your input is much appreciated – Jackson

      HandBrake is  an open source program that is pretty simple for getting files from DVDs, I haven't tried it with mini discs, but it might hold some answers.
