    You can use dvdshrink and just rename the VOB files to AVI most of the time

    mm - no

    You must have been very lucky to have ever got that to work.

    at OP

    What sort of DVD are we talking about - commercial protected or your own unprotected material via a DVD recorder?

    DVD FAB removes encrption and puts file on hard drive, DVD Shrink will extract a single video/audio stream, VirtualDub with MPEG-2 fcchandler's input filter will convert VOBs to avi and MS Moviemaker will convert avi to wmv

    regards

    I'd use Handbrake to rip (HandBrake), and Super Converter to convert the ripped files.

    You can rename the vobs to mpg - as they are just mp2 files with a fancy header - some players will handle them OK

    Thumbs up

    I have found a perfect solution !!! in the name of !!! NERO 9

    Yes it does cost 30 but hell is it worth it !!

    You can import a dvd then edit the chapters ect then can export as a WMV !!

    I'm a Happy Bunny !!!

    You can just change the file extension to what the above have said ie. to MPG then just use Windows Movie Maker to convert to WMV works a treat most of the time we have used it.
