Hi there,

Some of you seem to know something about video conversion. I know enough to be dangerous. I have a newer Vista system, and making movies has been great. I have a DVD+R burner that I capture my old videos on - DV mini, VHS-C, and soon 8mm. I have fun with it. HERE IS MY QUESTION: I know I can change the .vob extension to .mpg. Most of the time, it works great, but sometimes, it doesn't convert correctly. When you put it into Windows Movie Maker, it "sees" the movie as much longer. You get the message that you can't create a video longer than 24 hours. In reality, you might have a max of 30 minutes. Can someone please suggest a fix? Recapture? Reload the original .vob files and convert them again? Thanks.

I think the Windows Movie Maker is a very poor choice for working with video files.

Try DVDShrink (free) for ripping VOB files.

FWIW to XP users: When you click on the 'Command Prompt' you are just causing the 'Command prompt' to be displayed. This prompt gives you access to NTVDM.EXE, the 'NT Virtual DOS Manager'.
