Converting / Editing Video - February 13th 2010, 02:41 AM

I'm about ready to punch a wall, I've been trying to figure out how to edit some video clips for the last four or five hours straight. Any help would be muchly appreciated.

OS is Windows 7, using Windows Live Movie Maker to edit. I have a Sony Handycam.. model number is DCR-DVD108 I believe. No USB cord so I transferred the clips onto my computer through the disk. I now have two .VOB files in the folder as well as .BUP and .IFO files.

My problem is that I can't play the full .VOB files (using Windows Media Player, Movie Maker, etc) unless the .BUP and .IFO files are in the folder as well. When I try to upload the .VOB files into movie maker, only 15-20 seconds play (the full videos are at least 30 mins apiece). I've tried converting the .VOB files into other extensions (.avi, .wva, .mpg etc) but again only 15-20 seconds convert, and then the clips just stop.

I don't know if I'm explaining this right or not but does anyone know how I can get the full-length clips to play in movie maker and such? Or do I need to merge the .BUP / .IFO files with the .VOB ones (I don't know how to do that though)? I am so stressed out about this, I've had the camera about a year and I've never been able to upload video or figure this out.

Have you tried using Windows Movie Maker to import the footage from the DVD? AND, what program are you using to convert your .vob files?

Yeah, I've tried using both Windows Live Movie Maker and I also tried downloading an older version (2.6 I think), whether I import straight from the disk or the files copied to my desktop only the first 20 seconds or so are imported.

I tried using five or six online converters that came up on google, tried ArcSoft Media Converter, and Prism Media Converter. It converts the files but again, only a few seconds show.

You may want to try extracting the DVD files to your hard drive first (DVD Decrypter and DVD shrink might help). Otherwise, download the trial version of Sony Vegas and try from there.

Tried using Decrypter / shrink, wouldn't read the files.. downloaded Sony Vegas and it kind of works, it played one of the clips but not the other? It played the shorter one, I only got 9 seconds of the long one.

I seriously hate technology right now..

Edit - ach, nevermind, I got it to work. This can be closed now.
