I was working on a project on my sony vegas editing program and I imported the files from a DVD I borrowed from a friend into the program. The files played successfully. I wanted to keep the files into my PC and return the DVD back so that I won't have the disc running every time on my computer. I have Win 7 by the way if that ever matters.
After doing that, I then tried dragging those same .VOB files into my program to continue editing.
But instead, I get a message saying: The File is an Unsupported format.
What I did was that I dragged out three VOB files from the DVD into my PC and then tried to play one of the files from there to see what else happens.
I then get a message saying: Cannot play this media file. The File is either corrupt or the application does not support the format you are trying to play.
I don't know why I was able to play the files when I had the DVD running on my PC and why I can't without it. Was I suppose to also drag the IFO and BUP files into my computer as well, which came with the VOB files? Would have that helped or something?
I really need help here and I am getting stressed out from everything I've tried!
I do not want to ask for the DVD back because that's just too much work!
Also, here are some links to pictures I took for a better demonstration to this problem:
