Hi All,
Zeddy from NZ here.
I recently purchased a laptop with vista home basic as its OS, I also have a same brand desk top running xp OS.
If I open dvd files in xp the vob files are seen as mpegs, in vista they are seen as common shell??? (I think thats what they were).
Now both systems allow me to burn DVDs but the burnt DVDs on xp can be used on any player, but the DVDs burnt on vista only play on a few DVD players.
Does anyone know how to have the VOB files in vista recognised the same as they do in XP.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Zeddy

Hello zeddy.

Are you using the Windows Built in burning engine Native to VISTA?
Anotherwords are you burning DVD's though Computer or using a DVD burning Software?

Windows XP does not have this native DVD burning.

Both systems are running NTI DVD burners as they were installed when I purchased them.
It seems vista misses out a process or changes the files ?
So the burning programme etc are identical but vista "reads them" diferently?? and only allows them to be played in some players.
XP system no problems at all - can watch the burned dvd's anywhere.
Cheers
Zeddy
