copying a dvd-r to a computer?

I'm attempting to make a DVD for a children's Christmas program from raw footage, as well as an existing footage from a DVD that was burned onto a DVD-R. I'm having trouble trying how to figure out how to copy the DVD-R to the computer. I downloaded a trial version of Corel DVD Copy 6. It says that the disc in the drive was not compatible. When I open the DVD-R via My Computer, it shows me the Audio & Video folders. I'm working with Windows XP Professional (w/ service pack 2). And although this may be totally irrelevant, I have Pinnacle Studio 10, as well as Windows Movie Maker.

I also have an iMac (Tiger installed) with iMovie, as well as DivX, that I can use, if needed to extract and transfer files (though I was hoping I could do it all on the windows machine). I would just use the Mac, but I need Pinnacle's software to extract the footage from an analog camera, and it's not Mac compatible.

Any help would be appreciated! Thank you. :)

Try using a ripper, like this one here.

I hope it helps.
