I successfully imported my wedding footage to Movie Maker (having converted it from VOB files to MP4) and the sound was fine. However, having saved my project, the audio (the original audio and the music I added while editing) seems to have disappeared.
Is there a way to get this back, I'd hate to think the three hours of work hasn't just been rendered useless!

Because the VOB file wouldn't import.
I don't use Movie Maker, I'm speaking from a quality standpoint.
Going from your DVD to "MP4" you have lost quality from the original that you will never get back.
You will lose quality again when you output your final product from Movie Maker.
VOB files from a DVD are simply MPEG2 video wrapped in a VOB container.
I'd remove the MPEG2 video from the VOB files via something like VOB2MPEG (with no quality loss at all),
then import that into Movie Maker. SURELY Movie Maker can accept MPEG2? AC3 audio?
Maybe someone else can chime in on that.
Dump Movie Maker. Use VideoPad Video Editor at the very least.
For any nay sayers of VideoPad, I have used it's output in DVD projects and the results are quite acceptable.
In addition (dig into the manual) it can use various VirtualDub filters (a few, eg. MSU***,
can cause it to crash - it's a known bug...just avoid them).
