Are you trying to convert directly from a DVD and is it a Copy protected DVD ?

If it is the case you must first ripp the dvd to your HDD using a ripping software. then only you can convert..

Have a good day

The clips that I am trying to convert are home movies. I plug the mini dvd camera into my vcr/dvd player recorder I then play them back to the TV and record them to a personal dvd which I finalize. The homemade dvd will then play on my computer in windows media player .I also tried to download the dvd and save it to my hard drive and then convert and use in movie maker but that didn't work either. So the next thing I tried was to convert the file directly from computer DVD player to QMC and then put the converted file in a folder to work with. NEITHER OPTION worked on the movie maker or movie player. I don't have a clue if I have a Vista problem or where to begin to look for a problem. I have all the updated video drivers and other updates so I am totally current with them. All of my other programs work fine. PS: I even turn off my anti virus program when working off line on the projects as I thought that might be interferring. Sorry to be such a pain. Oh I forgot to say my computer is a media center edition.

Hello ,

When you converted the VOB file did QMC indicate conversion ok ?

What conversion did you choose ? if you live in the us did you use NTSC or Pal ,

Can you copy the log file and place it here ?

The conversion in your case should be done probably ( If USA) in NTSC DVD HQ to get the proper mpeg file that should in any case be readable both by WMP and WMM .

If you do not succeed thanks for sending us a small vob file to allow us to analyse it from here.

Have a nice day
