    Have you tried putting it in a Video_TS folder, and see if DVD Player will open it?

    If that works, then you should be able to burn the Video_TS folder using Toast as long as you use the UDF mode.

    Just create a new folder. Name it "Video_TS", and drag the .vob file into it.
    The Video_TS folder is what stand-alone dvd players (and Apple's DVD Player) look for to identify video content. There are other standard files too, like Audio_TS for music DVDs.

    tried that - no go

    the files already come up as VTS_01 etc...
    I think the files were not extracted , as it were , so Toast wont work it till the files are extracted

    thanks for the idea's

    Cheers
