You can usually see these video files on the DVD with UDF 2.0 file system. When your dvd recorder or camera writes a video according to DVD-VR standard. If you see UDF 2.0 under File System column in the CDRoller window, try to browse the disc folders, find and recover VRO file directly. Please keep in mind VRO files are often fragmented.

6.6.4 Viewing VOB files.
To view the recovered VOB files, we recommend PowerDVD from CyberLink at www.cyberlink.com.
6.6.5 Converting VOBs into MPGs.
Our Split video option automatically converts a "raw" DVD-video data (VOB or VRO files) into MPG files without loss of quality. In contrast to VOB file, MPG file can be simply viewed with the help of any DVD-compatible software (player). To activate the Split video window, just click Split Video button in the Side Bar (a left panel of 'Step 6...' dialog mentioned above) and assign the recovered file name in the next dialog. Or, just click Split Video button in the Main ToolBar.
6.6.6. Making a new DVD with recovered video.
Just click Burn button in the Main ToolBar, select Make a new DVD with recovered video and click the Next button.
Further, using a simple "step by step" procedure, you select DVD burner (computer DVD drive), add a video (MPG files) into your compilation and, finally, burn a new DVD-video disc that can be played back in the most DVD players.
In addition, you can load the recovered MPG or VOB files into your DVD-authoring software, for example: Sony Picture Motion Browser, Windows Vista / 7 DVD Maker, Sonic MyDVD, Nero Vision, etc.
Note. To replicate successfully finalized DVD-video disc, you can extract ISO Image file first, and then burn it to a new (blank) DVD.
