Do a forum search on DVD. This subject has been covered ad nauseam.
I don't see anything that says anything about converting a DVD disc to an AVI file.
I have lost count of the times I have posted this
Importing files from a DVD camcorder or other MPEG device, or Ripping DVD files rarely results in success in Premiere... do not be fooled by movie industry advertising into thinking that "DVD Quality Video" is suitable for EDITING... it is not... a DVD is designed to be for PLAYBACK only... and that includes trying to edit a Standard Def MPEG or VOB file!
You should also use WAV sound files, not the compressed MP3 format
Go to my notes page http://www.pacifier.com/~jtsmith/ADOBE.HTM
Click the internal link for editing compressed files... read
There are other products better suited to your task... but if you only have DVD type files, you should convert to DV AVI... go to the VideoHelp link in my notes and look for a program to convert
The only SD (Standard Def) files that Premiere likes are DV AVI type 2
Procoder 3 if you want to spend. If not search for a DVD ripper - there are many free progs. Like the others said - you need to look for DV AVI as the output and it can be flaky. You cam also try renaming the vob(s) from the DVD to mpg and trying that but it depends what is in the stream
