    If you already have Nero on your system, you can use Nero Recode to convert your VOBs to MP4 format. Complete DVD movie normally converts to approx 700Mb.

    Open Nero - go to Nero Recode -> Go to Recode DVDs and Videos to Nero Digital or recode Main Movie to Nero Digital -> Import DVD -> select Next at bottom of screen -> accept destination and target folder unless you want to change.

    Select Nero Digital Settings - select Standard as current profile -> go to advance Tab and tick Simple profile (Quicktime compatibility) - select Burn.

    All this is assuming you have ripped the movie to your harddrive and removed protections or that your DVD has had protections removed. The resuling movie will not be more 700Mb in size

    i have nero express 6 i try to understand and follow what you said but all i can do is burn to cd or dvd i dont see any way to import and save to hd ....and yes i have riped and protection is removed
    maybe i dont know how to use nero as good as i thought i did....im sorry if im too much trouble

    http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/convert_dvd_movie_to_nero_digital.cfm


    im guessing express 6 does not have dvd recode or recode 2


    ok i just did a update it was suppost to givr me recode2 but it says the linces i have does not allow me to use so i guess i cant use this...i would buy but no money

    Seems like you may not have the full Nero Burning Rom package that includes Nero Recode - you can download a trail version from the Nero website (expired after a month)
