Cannot save home DVD movies onto hard drive
I hope I am in the right place. I recently recorded my son's choir concert using a Panasonic VDR-D50 DVD Video Camera and the camera came with VideoCam Suite 1.0 for the editing software. For the life of me, I cannot get the recordings copied to my hard drive in a format that can be shared with our family via email, Facebook, etc. They are saved in a .VOB format and I cannot change it. I tried playing the concert on the TV and recording it onto a new DVD, but that didn't work either. I tried using the Windows Movie Maker, but each recording is cut to only about one minute.
Am I totally missing something? Is there a free, easy program that I can use to solve this problem?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
