While Premiere CS4 may "import" VOB files for editing, it is not a ripping application
It is also not a writing application... Encore comes bundled with Premiere for authoring and writing to disc
Since Nero and Roxio are known to cause problems with Encore, the usual advice is to use the FREE http://www.imgburn.com/
Many thanks - looks like I was in the wrong forum.Nero used to be so cool for compiling files by dragging and then burning, but it has become such a huge program for such a simple thing, it craps out more often than not. Nero 9 crashes on me whenever I try to use the browser - go figure. And, I've been using Nero since 5.5.Thanks again for your quick response.I guess I'll be using premiere for my slideshows. I don't do much raw video editing.

I don't have a name handy, but there are dedicated programs that do slideshows much less expensive than buying Premiere
For most of what you want, the free burning utility, ImgBurn will handle things nicely. Be sure to scroll down that ImgBurn page, as the first 2/3 is all ads. You want to get down to the actual ImgBurn program!
Now, if the VOB's are 100% DVD/BD compliant (very, very important), then PrPro can Import them, as of CS4.2. For non-compliant VOB's, ripping is the only course of action, and as John T. points out, PrPro is not a ripping program.
Not at all familiar with the .FLAC files, but if you are creating them, then ImgBurn can get them to a DVD/BD.
Good luck, and welcome to the forum,
