Hi fello imovie Lovers.
I am an IMOVIE addict, who is experienced using Canon camcords for importing into Imovie HD 6....
However I have a relative who wanted me to do some work with their DVD recordings from their "Sony handycam DCR-DVD 808E..

I have realised you cannot import direct from camcord into imovie and need to open disk and drag clips from there, however a pop reads unuseable file. I am assuming this is because the mac cannot read the files video_TS.VOB & VIDEO_TS.IFO & VIDEO_TS.DUB files.....

Can anyone offer some help on how I can convert these files to read.. Or am I doing perhaps something wrong..

Steps I have taken
1. Connect the Sony with USB TO my mac
2. This auto opens DVD player (from my research, I ma told this is common, just close it)
3. I then open hard disk on my desk top and drop drag the files into Imovie.... but does not work..

Hope someone can help
