Jittery video in Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0

Hello!  I have a DVD that I ripped into a VOB file on my hard drive using Premiere Elements.  When I view the file in any video player (Windows Media Player, Nero video player, etc), everything looks fine.  When I import the VOB file into Premiere Elements and I begin editing the video, I get a video jitter that comes and goes.  After extensive testing, I've determined that it's not the speed of the machine or hardware having troubles.  I have found that if I speed up or slow down the frame rate by a substantial amount, the jitter goes away.  The video file itself is 23.95 fps.  The problem is, if I alter the fps to get rid of the jitter, it's noticeably too slow or too fast.  Does anyone know what I can do to correct this?

Again, this jitter only appears in Premiere Elements 2.0.  In any other program, the video appears fine.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer!
