    I recently bought a DVD burner and have quite a few .vob files that I would like to burn onto DVD for use in my DVD player. The only problem is that my burning software (Sonic MyDVD) does not support .vob files. Don't even get me started with it's video capture abilities, which have me just about wanting to slam my head through the monitor.

    But anyways, can anyone recommend a good DVD authoring software that has the ability to burn .vob files. Either that, or a program that can convert these files to another format, while still retaining the 5.1 encoding in them.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, here is one answer to your question -> Burn VOB

    Somehow I think your real question may be about how to backup [​IMG] a DVD. There a numerous answers here Guides

    Mark,

    Try this:

    Make a copy of one of your vob files.

    filename.vob

    Then rename the copied file to:

    filename.mpg

    Now see if Sonic MyDVD will accept the new file ending in .mpg.

    Regards,
    -Gary

    Ha, Kelvin, believe it or not, I don't plan on doing that. I'd much rather buy one then go through the trouble of burning it.

    Gary, thanks for the advice, I'll try that route first, as it seems the easiest.
