Very OT - handycam movie files

Completely OT, but...

I have some mini-DVDs from my holiday (Sony Handycam) which I want to store
on the PC and play or edit from there. If I insert the mini-DVD in the
computer I can play the movies using Media Player, but when I copy them to
the C drive all I can see are a number of small files *.ifo and *.bup, and
some large ones *.vob. None of these will play off the hard drive - Windoze
doesn't recognise the file format.

Does anyone know a way of converting these files to mpeg, avi, mov or
whatever, or can anyone point me to a site or resource which might help?

Thanks

Nero can do this.

Though there is also a variety of shareware and freeware DVD ripping
software out there (unless it has all been suppressed by the recording
industry)

They are DVD files.
Double click the the Video_TS file, and the default player should open.
However if you have Windows Media player 9 or less it won't play, you
need vers 10 that can be downloaded from Microsoft, but be aware that
there have been some "no sound" issues with this version. Best to
download any DVD player...e.g. Power DVD...Google for "DVD player" and
you should get plenty of free one's to pick from.

Grab your self a copy of DVD-Shrink, its Freeware and amongsth many other
useful features it can back up a DVD to Hard Disk. The .vob files etc that
you see are the DVD Movie file structure.

There's been quite a few pieces of software which you could use, and
since this shouldn't be a region-locked DVD I wouldn't expect you to
have big problems. There's been several video editor programs given
away on magazine cover-CDs. If you see one, grab it.

This does sound like a standard DVD file set.
