Analogue to DVD to WMM to Web?

My ultimate goal is to convert analogue VHS/SVHS footage to digital and then
upload short takes to a web site either as single files or for streaming. I
have a Panasonic E95 with 160Gb hard drive. This converts VHS/SVHS analogue
footage to digital very well indeed. I can then burn the results to DVD-R or
DVD-RAM disks. However then I have a problem. My PC's CD reader will not read
the disks. I have tried with another PC fited with a DVD writer/reader and it
will read the DVD-R disk but not the DVD-RAM disk. I do need the latter to
retain quality. Anyway it appears that the DVD-R disk has a number of files
on it - IFO, VOB, etc. I can copy these to my PC's hard-drive. BUT then both
Windows XP Pro Media Player and Windows XP Pro Movie Maker will not open
these files to allow me play them or rather to convert them to WMV. Please
help!!!

Take a look at Papa John's website on how to import DVD files (Vob, Bup,
Ifo)...

WMM doesn't do them very well, WinDVD Creator and Power Director do them
quite nicely.

Both of the above will let you save as WMV. (www.intervideo.com and
www.gocyberlink.com)

Very few drives other than Panasonics support DVD RAM.
