Test with a different media player.

With that being said, it sounds like the file is possibly corrupt. What is the source of the file? (ie: where did it originate or how was it created).

VOB is a DVD container format. If you had a DVD with a VOB file, then you had a video DVD. You would have had to do some type of ripping or converting to end up with a WMV file. You're saying you lost the CD and "deleted" a copy (not sure how you delete a CD). Has this file ever played longer than 8 minutes? When you play it, does the progress bar go all the way to the end after 8 minutes, or does it stop in the middle at 8 minutes?

If you tried multiple players and computers, then the file is either corrupt or incomplete. Without the originals or a working backup, you're probably out of luck.

sorry know made a copy of the cd gave the cd out for people to view and it got lost. When i first ripped the cd to the computer it did play to the end but im not sure if it was this copy im having problems with, allthough now i think about it im sure the software i had for ripping the cd to computer only let me do it for a certain amount of time as it was a free version.
It stops in the middle of the progress bar after 8min

Is there not a chance that someone you gave the cd to ripped a copy onto their machine?

Maybe they can send you a copy if they have?

It's worth a shot

If the playback progress bar stops in the middle, then the file is corrupt. You need to find someone with an original disk and re-rip it. Then make a backup copy and don't lose it.

That's not the definition of corruption. It's a digital file. If data is missing, it's missing.

Make a copy of the file, never experiment on your only copy. Typical issue with wmv files (assuming the file is complete) is corrupt indexing. Try a tool such as this: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AsfBin

Aside from that, it is likely beyond saving.
