Step 1: Get an external DVD drive that is drawer loading. I like LaCie http://www.lacie.com/us/products/product.htm?id=10484 Step 2: Finalize the disc in the camcorder. While that is going on, download and install a DVD ripper to the Mac. I like HandBrake http://www.handbrake.fr Step 3: When finalizing in the camcorder is compete, take the disc out of the camcorder and place it in the drawer loading DVD drive. Step 4: Use HandBrake to rip the video from the DVD. You cannot rip the VOB file form the DVD while it is in the camcorder - you have already discovered this. If the disc will not finalize in the camcorder (because of the kind of blanks used), you will still need the external drive...

If you have a mini dvd camcorder . You will have to finalize your dvd in the camera and then put the dvd in your computer's DVD burner (top loading only) and then you will have to convert the files http://www.handbrake.fr/ file converter free and import them into your editing program. Use the HELP feature in your editing program to learn about editing. Usually you would import your videos and drop them in to the timeline, add transitions, menus, music, etc. Once you are ready to burn, your project will be burned to a different DVD and you can file the original away.
