I've ripped some of my music DVDs to individual VOB files for each chapter, they play back fine with PowerDVD 7 Ultra, but when I try to play them with Windows Media Player 11 I get the error "Windows Media Player cannot skip to the requested location on the DVD."

After googling all night I haven't found a solution. Since I have PDVD installed I think I have the required MPEG-2 decoder, and WMP plays DVD discs fine - just not the VOBs.

Any other suggestions on what I should try?

will it work if you change extension from .vob to .mpg?

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
