About 7 years ago I had my son’s childhood video’s that I took transfered from the video recording tapes to an actual DVD. I had this transfer done at walmart. I now want to move all of the DVD videos to My Cloud incase something ever happends to the DVD’s, which are quickly aging. I can’t figure out how to do this. When I insert the walmart dvd, the video just pops up and wants to play. I don’t see where I can upload it to a cloud, or transfer it or even save it. Any ideas on this process? Thanks soooo much!
Ok let me just update this. I figured out where to find the DVD on my computer, under “devices and drives” but when I right click it, I don’t have an option to save it to the Cloud. I have "share with’ and then it takes me to “advance settings” but I still don’t see my cloud.
As long as the DVD isn’t encrypted, you can just copy the files over to the My Cloud.
Thanks Tony- How do I know if it’s encrypted? Could you possible give me instructions on how to copy the file, assuming it is not encrypted? Thanks sooo much.
I guess I’m not understanding your question, but you’d copy the files the same as you would any other file.
Open the DVD using Windows Explorer, highlight the file(s), select copy – then Paste them wherever you want.
Right click on the DVD player, and choose explore instead of play. You will see a VIDEO_TS folder containing .VOB, .BUP and .IFO files.
Copy the entire VIDEO_TS folder to the My Cloud.
Using your computer, play the copied video files using the My Cloud video player.
darnnit. When I tried to do that, I got a red circle with a line through it. Does that mean that Walmart made it so I can’t copy the DVD? That would be silly wouldn’t it, since it’s my own home videos?
I guess you will have to use some DVD ripping software. Some software is free, some is paid for. Some of them rip only non-encrypted DVDs, some of them get rid of the protections…
