Burning a DVD Using Only Mini DVD-R vobs

Specs: Windows Vista
I was trying to copy a video recorded to a Mini DVD-R to DVD. Before I began I copied all of vobs from the VIDEO_TS folder on the Mini DVD to my hard drive. I was unsuccessful at transferring to DVD, but worse yet the original Mini DVD was destroyed. Is there anyway to build a DVD using the vobs I saved. At the very least, can I recreate the original Mini DVD with the vobs.

To get a working set of files for making a DVD, you also need the BUP and IFO files.

If you lost them, there is an option. You can rename the .VOB files to .MPG. They 'should' play as MPG files. You could then combine them (in the correct order of course) and use a DVD creator program to remake the DVD, complete with its VOB, IFO and BUP files..

1. Backups, 2. Backups and 3. Backups.

Thanks. I have tried renaming the vob to mpg. It will play for 16 seconds and freeze. The timer on the player shows the video is about 15 minutes long and the vob size is a little over 1GB

Hmmm, that's kinda strange!
One GB for a VOB file is normal. If the video is very large, it is split up into 1GB segments.
Try another player. Two good free ones are 'Media Player Classic' and 'VLC'.
