Whilst it is possible to transcibe directly from CD’s / DVD’s we would suggest that you copy the audio/ videos from the CD / DVD’s and transcribe the video / audio files from the h/drive of your pc ~ instead of from the CD / DVD’s
It will be quicker & operate more smoothly that way.
The reason for that is that the CD / DVD drive mechanisms aren’t really design to do the rapid stop / start / backspace operations that is common place in the transcription process.
DVDShrink – is a free application that allows you to extract the DVD information onto your PC
