Hi Sharon,
Humm, I'm not much on video or dvd editing, however there are threads in the forum that discuss copying DVD .vob files to your computer. Here is one primary thread, maybe it will help. http://itsmygallery.com/ProShow/viewtopic.php?t=2461
But,.....what I would do is,.....I am assuming you still have your PSP .psh file and photos, music, etc. on your computer. I would just open your show back up in Producer or PSG, whichever, add the items you want, and reburn the DVD. You might choose to give this show a new name before burning. Even if you have had to reinstall Producer for whatever reason, your .psh files remain intact unless you delete them.
If you want to add content to a DVD that is already burned, I think you are out of luck. A DVD is a final product and you can not modify the contents. If it is a RW (rewriteable disc), you can erase and then reburn.
Good luck. :)

tnx Dan for your reply,
I create slideshows for a local nightclub, and when i create a slideshow for them they usually want me to just keep adding more slides to the previous show thus then creating another show I usually have the shows on the p.c. as psh files but I have lost one and wanted to add the dvd content back into pro show producer and add the slides if that makes sense to you,
but I think you have already answered my question unfortunately............ tnx anway
cheers

If you just want to add slides to the end, all may not be lost.

The first slide could be the 'movie' as it is right now, than add the slides to the end of the 'movie'. The only problem is I'm not sure if you will have a loss of quality rendering the movie part again.

The DVD files that end .vob (the video and sound) can be made into mpg files just by changing the .vob to .mpg once on your harddrive. You should then be able to drop these .mpg files into a slide. I've not tried this, but hopefully it should work :roll:

If you really, really want to be clever you may be able to split the .mpg file into two or more parts and drop in another slide at the splits.

These are just some thoughts and I cannot say it will work, but hteory says it will :|

Hi Brian,
Thanks for the additional ideas. You have combined my original responses. I agree it should work, there may be a slight quality difference. I think what I would do if the original files are lost, is follow Brians suggestion but just use the .mpg save as a singular show. If you have more photos from another event etc. make a new show with those. When you burn, you can burn both with individual thumbs, you can choose loop all if you wish. Then if later you have even more you can do the same thing with three thumbs, still choose loop all if that's what you want to do. You have several choices.
