Using MS Office 2000 Powerpoint I am trying to insert a movie file.  It orginally was a VOB file, I saved it to desktop and saved as JP.avi.  I went to insert it into a Powerpoint but it won't take it, even the files it looks for says *.avi.

What am I doing wrong?

Rather than jumping through hoops, consider just downloading www.playsforcertain.com PFCPro.
You should be able to incorporate the VOB file using the DVD interface.
Alternatively, you must convert the VOB file to a media format compatible with PowerPoint and changing the file extension will not do that.  You need a thrid party application.  Google on:
Convert VOB to avi
and you should find many to chose from.
