    I have a home movie DVD which will open in Media Player but will not import onto my Windows 7 Laptop.
    I would like to import it to Movie Player so that I can edit it.Thanks JenArt

    It should be a 2-step process. First open the DVD in a window and locate the large .vob files; those are the video files. Copy those to the hard drive and change the extension from .vob to .mpg. Then open Windows Movie Maker and see if you can open those files for editiing.

    I don't know if you are not seeing the device the videos are on or just not seeing the videos themselves or it can't import the .vob files, but, following the first paragraph should be a successful workaround to whichever is preventing import now.
