    Why is audio out-of-synch with video on VOB files


      I used a Pioneer DVR to import ~120 8mm and Hi8mm and Digital8 analog tapes to convert them to DVD's.  These ~120 DVD's are in VOB format.  These are 4:3 video (not HD).  I did test this flow and didn't notice a few of the VOB's did not have the audio tracking properly.


      When importing them into Premiere Elements 8.01 some of the VOB files have their audio out of synch with the video, yet, they play okay in the Premiere preview window.


      Is there a setting so that when it 'conforms', that it will track the audio correctly?

      Do I need to buy a conversion tool to go from VOB to mpeg-2 (or other format?) and then import to Premiere Elements 8?

      Is there a better video editing tool to use?


      I simply want to take all these 8mm tapes / DVD's to splice the best scenes.


      I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8GHz processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory; and installed an ATI HD-4350 pcie gen2 graphics card. I have a memorex bluray dvd player.


      Thanks, SJK.
