I have copied my old VHS tapes to DVD I would now like to copy the DVD onto USB sticks. My Vista PC won’t do this. Do you know any software I can download to do this?

    Hello, as long the USB drive/drives have enough space, copy/paste should do the trick. Just select all the folder under the video folder, right click and select copy and navigate to the USB drive, then select paste and it should copy all the folders. As a sidenote, if the DVDs are somehow encrypted you might be able to copy them but you will not be able to play them.

    If you want to save on space and convert to avi, mvk or other formats you could try something like the the programs in the links below. You could also convert to DVD:

    The video tracks on a DVD are stored in .VOB files, which are actually MPEG files. Usually, the disc structure is too obscure to make any sense of these files, but since these are your discs, and by the sound of it they include only a couple of tracks, you could just copy them and rename them. I would suggest copying one of the .VOB files to your hard drive, renaming it to .MPG and trying to play it. If it plays well and you get audio as well as video then just go ahead and copy all the other .VOB files and rename them accordingly.
