Did you check by importing through "media browser" ?
I did but still made me choose a specific file within the DVD.
Im going to try and convert the entire DVD to AVI, hoping i dont have to choose the files and it should manage to do it, if not ill follow Bill's advice.
How many VOB's appear in the VIDEO_TS folder?
The MPEG-2 AV portion can span many. Also, if there is any Menu, or navigation, it will occupy part of the first VOB, and the AV portion might only start there, and finish farther down the VOB chain.
Also, if the TV station used a DVR, then all bets will be off, as those devices (and some authoring software) usually create non-compliant DVD's, and especially that first VOB can be highly problematic.
