Capturing and editing from DVD

    I copied my home VHS stuff onto DVD using a Sony DVD Recorder. I can play
    them on the pc and I've used all sorts of software trying to edit the film.
    I cannot get the format recognised by all the software. I've tried stuff
    like Microsoft Moviemaker2 but no format recognised.

    I've looked at the files of the DVD and there are 2 files, the first is
    video-rm and the other is video-ts. The files are VOB files so I ain't got a
    clue what I'm doing wrong. The main folder that the 2 named sub-folders are
    in is called sonata volume.

    I don't want to do anything tricky or complex. I just want to edit my
    daughtrer's home video's when she was a baby.

    Hopefully someone out there can help me.

    Frank.

    You need to convert that DVD to .mpeg files.... edit with a program
    like "Womble"... and they re-author the DVD.
