Default Need some help with converting .vob files.

I'm not sure if it's my computer or my recorder, but anytime I try to rip the .vob files from the disc that I recorded a show on, it doesn't have all of the video.

It has all the chapters and video if I play it in PowerDVD, but when I try to rip the .vobs using Spamsoft or anything else, it gives me random chunks and snippets of what I recorded.

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

I'm also using a DVD recorded and moving data from my television to my computer using DVD+RWs if that helps.

Well, first of all, there no need for rubbish like Spamsoft.

Second, if you have recorded off your TV, there's no need to rip the files - just copy them in Windows Explorer.

It might be that your recorder has not closed the disk properly and written its IFO files. Be sure to do this before editing.

You should only use genuine Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden media. Many thanks to for their supply and great service.

I guess I kind of worded it wrong. I'm looking to convert the .vob files to .avi files.

However, whenever I try to play the .vob in VCL or any media player, it will sometimes give me random chunks of video. FixVTS helped a little bit. I think the problem may just be that my DVD player cuts off about 5-10 seconds on each end of each chapter.

What exactly do you mean by "closing" the DVD?

And also, do you happen to know of a good program to convert .ifo or .vob to .avi?

Thank you in advance!
