PS, Im posting this because I cant seem to the post button on adobe forums
You perhaps need to post on a Premiere forum or list - as suggested
yesterday, Director *isn't* the appropriate tool for DVD editing.
That being said, you probably stand a better chance of editing source
footage. Do you have access to it?

Rename the VOB extension to MPG and then try import the files into Premiere. If
that doesn't work, let me know.

K, the VOBs worked, what about IFO's and BUP's?
When I click and drag the files into premiere it says UNSUPORTED OR DAMAGED FILES, but I can view them in WMP
The movie industry doesn't like to tell you this but, DVD files are compressed video. Just because it's better than VHS doesn't mean it's suitable for editing. Editing compressed files will result in a bad end-product when you go to re-export. Especially if you have any intention of compressing the output again.
The only reason you'd want to do this is because you can't get your hands on the source footage. If you can't get your hands on the source, then either 1. you need to look at your archiving system; B. your client needs to look at their archiving system, 3. the source footage has been accidentally destroyed, or 4. The owner of the footage doesn't want you messing with their stuff.
If you have to do it for whatever reason, I highly recommend that you consider a hardware solution. if your computer has a Svideo-in plug or Firewire, then buy, borrow or rent a dvd player with Svideo or firewire. Then go to the Premiere forums and ask about capturing video without deck-control. They might refer to it as capturing "wild," ie. the application has no control over the operation of the deck ,it's just capturing whatever comes down the pipe.

I highly second the recommendation that you begin asking questions about
editing video in Premiere in a Premiere forum. It only makes sense and you'll
probably increase the chances of getting the answers you seek.

Indeed. TV has taken a drop in quality as well since most of it is broadcast
from (sometimes overly-) compressed digital video these days instead of good
clean component analog tape (BetaSP for example).
Good advice, no screen name.
Fortunately for me, my eyes are getting old and I soon won't notice
