.vob editing help?

i'm currently working on a project which involved recording some clips on a video camera, and now i'm attempting to edit them. i was hoping someone with some film editing experience could give me a hand. (I understand editing very well, i'm having file issues)

so i recorded the needed clips, and through some trial and error got the clips onto a computer. the files were ".vob"s, which afaik are un-editable through most software (i use sony vegas pro 12 can use WMM if necessary). i took the files, and put them on a flash drive which i transferred onto another computer which had my editing software on it, and is a much more powerful PC. I used MediaCoder to convert the .vob's into both AVI and MP4. I read that SVP can have trouble with avi importing, but that mp4's should play fine. i'm getting errors when trying to load the clips onto either WMM or Sony Vegas, regardless of which format I use. i need to have the editing done this week, but because of these issues i'm getting worried. would the problem be through transferring the .vob files from the disk to the computer, then by using a flash drive? could this cause issues?

any help is appreciated, i know there are several movie makers in the community that might have experience with DVD editing and i could really use some advice

That worked, thanks!

Unfortunately, the quality is a bit low, not to mention that annoying watermark. i'll find a workaround but i appreciate the help!

Do you have a .ifo file accompanying the .VOB files? you should be able to import that.
How did you rip the video off the dvd? it should have .ifo files alongside the vob.

Otherwise...
Try changing the .vob extension to .mpg and reimport to sony vegas.

Ah sorry didn't even realize that the program wasn't free. I use it at work when I need to convert a VOB but I guess ours is licensed.

Have you tried what I suggested above (renaming the file extention .vob to .mpg)? I don't have a DVD and I'd like to know if it works on Vegas.

i read that before when testing some solutions, and although a ton of people swear by it it didn't help me. it's really hit and miss i think. lange's solution helped a lot, so i would start there
