Hi if this is going to be a one off then you could install Videoredo it is not free but the trial is fully working
click here
Or dvd shrink which is free but not quite as user friendly but can walk you through it if you like

Open the dvd in shrink then choose reauthor drag the main title over to the left Panr .At therb top right youwill see two opposing arrows click on that and the Star/end frame box will open .Drag the top slider to where you want to start then the botom to where you want to finish.As its a short clip just slide the botm one back as far as it will go it will stop at where you started .Then just slide it to your end point Click ok you now have your 30 sec clcik . You ned to save it as you would an ordinary dvd except choose create hard disc folder. You now have a video_ts folder with your clip .You should be able to play tht on the pc or easily convert it to wahtever you need

Much easier to use Windows Movie Maker. In preview just slide the bar to where you want to start click split. then to where you want to end and click split again.
Drag to timeline and click publish. Give it a name and location where you want to save it.

Not really as WMM does not accept Mpeg.You would need to convert to avi first with a huge file n.The job could be done in seconds in shrink while you were still converting nthe file
