Question
Jeff Hi,   I need your help,  I have a large number of videos on my computer that were taken with a camera. I want to take a small part of each individual video and put the segments together on one CD.    Is there a simple way to do this. Thank you Ken

Answer
Ken,

You'll have to define what you mean by simple.

You're going to need software to do this. It's much easier on the Mac than a PC because there's a free tool with Mac and there's no real easy/free equivalent.

But basically:

Transfer your videos off the camera
Import the videos to video editing software
Select the section of the videos you want.
Arrange the order of the selections
Export the videos
Put the Videos on a CD.

Let me know what you'd like me to expand on...
