Maybe someone handed you a copy of a video they put together from your last family get-together.
Perhaps you foolishly purchased a "direct to DVD" video camera.
It's possible your hard drive crashed and all your projects are only backed up on DVDs.
What if someone wanted you to compile clips from a bunch of different projects you've helped out on, but you were never given a hard drive with the footage or project?
There are a bunch of completely legitimate reasons why you may need to get to footage on a DVD so you can edit it later or post it online.
My next post will be a tutorial on how to do just such a thing.
I typed up step-by-step instructions today in an email, but I need time to gather images and such.
