Can't Get Video To Work

Question

I am trying to import video clips that I have burned to a DVD from a camcorder. The files are VOB, I have Roxio EMC 9, and my OS is Vista. When I go to MyDVD Express, it gives me the option to import only one of the video files, and when I try to import it, Roxio says that the file type is not supported. I am new to this. What I am trying to do is import all 5 of the clips and edit them together into one video. I tried downloading them to my desktop from the DVD as well, but didn't see a way to access files stored on the desktop. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Gal,

 

Don't use My DVD Express or any other "Assistant" or lite application for anything that is more than a basic project.

 

Create a new file folder somewhere on your computer. Use Windows to copy the folders on the disc to that folder. Navigate to the folder and add the VOB files to Video Wave. Do your editing there.

 

What camcorder do you have? How did you burn the files to the disc?

 

See karri's videos on Video Wave (link).

Thanks for your reply! It was my sister-in-law who actually burned the DVDs, so I'm not sure what camcorder she has, but it is one that burns to the dvd. Is there another name for the Video Wave program? I'm not finding anything called that in my Roxio, although I know it's there because I've seen it update. If I go to "create DVD", I can navigate to the folder on my desktop where I have the video file stored, but when I select it, the screen that pops up saying, "select the movies you want to import" does not have any movies listed there. So I seem to be back at square one. I'm getting so frustrated!

What if you left click start > programs > emc 9. Does Videowave appear as an option this way?

No, it just shows Roxio Creator DE<home or projects

I'm thinking the install did not go as it should have because Videowave should appear as a program in the suite.

 

Was this originally installed on your pc or did you buy the program?

 

If you bought it, I would recommend a clean install on your Vista pc

If I remember correctly, the 'DE' Dell Edition of Roxio Creator & My DVD 9.1 Premier, only has MyDVD.

I'll certainly defer to you.

 

The op said "I have Roxio EMC 9" so I read that as meaning she has the whole suite. But your explanation clears up why there is no Videowave.
