Vob Files From Dvd Cannot Be Played On Pc!

Question

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:

Thanks!

You posted in the Roxio Creator 2012 forums. Your problems, shown in your links, are for Nero and Sony Vegas! What has that got to do with the Roxio software?

 

 

There is a way to get the .vob files to work in the Roxio software, but you need to go to the Vegas, or Nero forums for the problems with their software.

 

 

BTW, you should have copied the entire contents of that DVD, to a folder on you hard drive.

Well is there anything else I can do? Because I can't get that DVD back from my friend I just returned to. Could there be another way to play those VOB files without any of the other files that were missing?

 

And can you demonstrate to me how to get the vob files to work in the roxio software? I'm somehow rather confused.

Do you even have the Roxio software? You only mentioned Nero and Vegas.

 

Change the vob extension to mpg and you may be able to play them. Did you get all of the vobs from the DVD?

 

Otherwise you are done un less you can get the DVD back from your friend.
