Ultimately, I found a simple solution to the problem, which works with both Adobe Premiere Elements and Nero Vision Express (which is part of Nero 6 Ultimate Edition), but may not work with all software packages. I left the recorded video in an unfinalized state on a DVD+RW disk. I inserted the disk in the computer's DVD drive and copied the VOB file located in the Video_TS folder on the disk to my hard drive. Premiere Elements and Vision Express don't recognize VOB as a valid file type for editing. Without doing any file conversion, I simply changed the file extension from VOB to .mpeg. Both apps recognize MPEG as a valid file format and import the video for editing without issue. You edit the movie and then save out your finished file just like you would any other video project.
Renaming the file from VOB to MPEG won't work if you are using an app like Windows Movie Maker, which does not recognize MPEG as a valid editing format. If you don't have access to a video editing application with support for MPEG editing, the other option is to convert the VOB file to AVI or some other format supported by most video applications using an app like Blaze Media Pro or by ripping the DVD in a one step process using an app like Xilisoft DVD Ripper.

Chris - When I put an unfinalized disc in my DVD drive, it is not recognized. I get the message to "Please insert a disc into drive D". Finalized, no problems. Any thoughts?
