Put the "clips" on a data DVD. You don't need any version of Vegas for this.

Unless the clips need converting?

Yes, DATA DVD. You can only put 4.38 GBs of clips on the 4.7 disc. (or less) If he can edit your footage, as is, that's all you gotta do. May take a few discs for lots of footage.
Drag & Drop into Nero, or what ever and burn DATA DVD.
Drag & Drop from disc, back to a computer to edit.

You could also loan or borrow a USB drive to do the transfer to your client. That would save burning lots of DVDs. (Thumb drives would not be suitable because of file length restrictions of the file system used.)

Actually you can use a Thumb drive. Here's how:

1) Start
2) All Programs
3) Accessories
4)Command Prompt

On the command prompt line type Convert D: /fs:ntfs

In this example D: is the drive my Thumb drive is identified as. Substitute your drive designator. Note that there is a space after Convert and a space following the D:

This converts the drive from the FAT32 system that most Thumb drives come with to the NTFS system, which allows for file sizes up to the capacity of the drive

Finally, and very importantly, the Convert command should not delete files already on the drive.

Such thumb drives may not be compatible with non-computer gear. Can you go back to FAT if needed?

Yes, I believe so although I haven't tried it.. You should be able to reverse the process; that is, change the " /fs:ntfs" to /fs:fat32."

I know the NTFS system may not work on some/all Macs but we've never had a problem with it in PCs. Not sure where else it might cause a problem.

My TV and Network Player have USB ports. The TV may not work with NTFS (haven't tried), whereas with the Network Player I know it would be read only. No doubt other devices exist which do not fully support NTFS as well.

On the other hand, if you want an NTFS thumb drive to use with NTFS systems, there's no reason *not* to do it. Personally, i don't own even one device that couldn't use an NTFS thumb drive so there's no reason for me to worry about backward compatibility.
