How to Play & Convert a PAL DVD (.vob) files to NTSC ?

posted in DVD Burning

Hello - Please help.
I received a PAL DVD (7.7GB). Most files on it are .VOB files. I’m using win XP with SP2. Windows media player cannot play this DVD (it says it need the right CODEC software).
I would like:
1. To be able to play the movie on my PC.
2. To be able to convert it to NTSC and
3. To burn it to make a copy (I’m using the Ulead Burn Now software).
Thanks. reply
