Since you may not write to a DVD, did you try copying the files to your hard drive to import from there?
Also, what are your EXACT steps to try and import?
Ah, good point. I assumed that the "destination folder" was the one on my hard disk that the files were being written to. I shall try copying the files to my hard disk first.
The steps I use are:-
Select Files and Folders
Select the .VOB files on the dvd
Then a message box appears asking if I want to use the "Video Importer"
I select the video importer which opens showing all of the .vob files selected and where on my hard disk they will be saved.
The video importer then copies all of the .vob files to my hard disk then shows the error message I described earlier - which was confusing.
Two good reasons to Copy the VIDEO_TS folder, with the VOB files, is that reading from a DVD in the multi-drive is much, much slower, and also, because Imported files are done via absolute links, that DVD would need to be inserted, or the VOB files will be shown as Media Offline.
Also, while PrE will Import 100% DVD-compliant VOB's, if that DVD was authored by some other software, or was produced on a DVR unit, then the first VOB can be non-DVD-compliant, and it will then need to be ripped, using other software first.

As far as I know, that should work
So, for a Windows computer, running your computer as Administrator is sometimes NOT the same thing as runnng the program as Administator
These links are for a different Adobe product, but the IDEA is the same
