Thanks, dialysis1. The camera records in 2-channel Dolby, so for now, I won’t need the full version.
Yes, it appears the program does support vob files. I got off to a rough start on my first attempt to xfer some mini-dvds to the HD and burn them to a dvd.
I got an I/O error when I tried to drag and drop one particular vob or rip it from the mini with Nero. However, I was able to drag and drop it with the second computer in our home network, then transfer it over. I have also been able to drag and drop all other vob files on that first computer, although I believe I got an I/O error on one other file when I tried to rip it. So I just gave up on that and proceeded with dragging and dropping.
So the questions now are: should I get a ripper utility, since Nero seems to be a little unreliable? If so, what program would you recommend?
I’ll read the “similar threads” at the bottom of the page.
