I have recorded some home movies from VHS onto DVD-RW using Pioneer DVR-220. Now I want my movies in a single video file. Obviously the DVDs are not encrypted so is it necessary to rip them? I tried renaming a .vro ext to .mpg and it played fine in win media but said the 63-minute movie was only 6 mins. which was a mess when I tried to edit it in MPEG Video Wizard 2003. Surely there is a simple way to do this?
