Will Studio not successfully import from the DVD itself? (Is this a DVD image, or is this a ".VOB-on-a-disk"?)
Studio might be able to successfully import from the DVD.
If not, other users have reported success by copying the VOB file to their hard drive, then renaming the file to end in .MPG instead of .VOB. Studio will sometimes then successfully open the .mpg file.
Of course, other folks have problems doing any of the above - then converting the file may be required, I suppose. But no sense going down that road if import or copy works!
