VOB file claims it's 3 seconds long

    With AnyDVD running, I copy VOB files from DVD to hard disk for viewing/editing. Usually, these files are readable/playable in various media players/editors, e.g. windows moviemaker or GOMplayer. (crude, I know, but serves my purposes.) However, I encountered a 0.99G VOB file that seem to copy correctly, and the content seems to be there on hard disk, but the players say it is 3 seconds long and not all the content plays. Could this be an AnyDVD issue, or an issue with me just not having the right codecs to play them or what? I don't know much about video files. Has this happened to anyone else?
    Thanks for any advice on this

    This is not an AnyDVD issue. AnyDVD does nothing with .VOB files.

    With the problematic DVD inserted, post us the AnyDVD window.

    Are you sure there's any content to be viewed?

    re: VOB claims it's 3 seconds long

    I have done more investigation into this. DVD is DVD-R, with no copy protection, same thing happens if you copy the VOB without AnyDVD, so AnyDVD is innocent. VOB must contain some anomaly that not all codecs handle. I did find an application (isofter DVD to WMV converter) that handles it correctly, though. Thanks for the help.
