    Post How to Manage VOB files

    In Windows 8.1 I have tried to burn to a blank DVD-R Disc a cartoon/movie with VOB & ancillary files;
    forum re vob.JPG
    I have a number of problems:
    1: I get a message showing the files and "Files Waiting to be burnt to Disc" -but no info on what to do next. What do I do to continue the process or do I need special software?
    2: I have tried to useDVD Flick & ImgBurn however a message says it does Flick not recognize the files.
    3: I have used NCH Express Burn Disc Burning Software with some success in that the Disc will play in Windows Media Centre BUT it won't play on my TV DVD player.
    4: I have tried to "convert" the files to mp4 (Windows) using Smart Converter Pro without success; mainly because I don't know what I doing!
    5: Is there another way of "converting" these files to one file in mp4 or avi format?
    Any help or comments on the above would be appreciated: Sorry about the length of this post.

    I am trying to create a single file, e.g. mp4 out of several video files (e.g. in my first post). I want to create the single file and then
    use DVD Flick & ImgBurn to create a DVD that will play on my TV/DVD Player. TX for replying.

    Hi Clint,
    I had a good read in the site you referred me to and learnt a lot: however I have not come up with a clear answer to my "quest".
    I have the cartoon downloaded onto my hard drive; it is in the format shown in my 1st post (there are several more similar files in it also - I just took a screen shot of some of them); I would like to convert that group of files to one single file (if that is possible) - then burn the single file onto a DVD-R disc.
    Is that possible? If so how do I do it (convert the group of files to one file). Hope I have expressed myself clearly this time.

    Create a folder (directory) - any name will do. Inside that folder, create another folder called "VIDEO_TS" exactly as that without the quotes.
    Place all the files in that new folder called VIDEO_TS
    Then, open ImgBurn and choose "write files/folders to disc".
    Navigate to the folder containing the files using the "Browse for a folder icon" (3rd icon down) and choose it. It will only allow folders with the name VIDEO_TS.
    Insert a blank DVD and hit the burn icon to make a DVD playable on most DVD players.

    Thanks skcusime,
    Yes that worked fine. Is it possible to use a program like smart converter to convert all those files in the VIDEO-TS folder to one file, e.g. Windows Media Centre will play mp4 files?
    I know it is not necessary to do so; it's just that I would like to try and do so and put them on my media player as one file.

    Sure, any video editor of course but also converters sometimes/usually have a convention for joining video. The one's I've used are Format Factory and AutoGK; the first has an advanced section for joining and AutoGK looks at the naming of the VOB files and all _01_n (where n=0-9) files are joined.

    The movies I download from cable's TCM channel are automatically saved on a DVD+R or DVD-R disc with the 2 Folders, will play back and also play in my computers and cheapo 9" Sylvania DVD player.

    If I want that disc in a single file such as .flv or .wmv I think a capture program would be necessary.

    I never can find DVD-R/DL discs, only the DVD+R/DL type. The + and - on DVDs signify competing formats while the - on CDs is only a separator.

    Thanks for the info - I gather from all that, that it does not really matter which format you use, but technically DVD+R has some advantage over DVD-R.
    Today I was playing around with some files & found a video music file with just a .VOB extension on my PC. I opened it with Windows Movie Maker and found that I could convert it to mp4 within that program and then burn it to a DVD-R disc using FLICK/IMGBURN without problems; it plays back on my PC and my DVD player/TV.
    I just clicked on the "save movie" icon on the task bar to save it to mp4 format in the folder I wanted to save it in.
    Thanks to all who responded - I'm off to purchase some "double layer" DVD+R DL OR DVD-R DL discs for my larger movies.
