Copying the main movie using Nero Recode

I first posted this to the Nero Recode Transcoding forum but I didn’t get any good responses, so I’m reposting here since it may be a more general newbie question.


I’m kind of new to this DVD writing stuff, so please forgive me if I’m being silly. I’m just wondering if I’m doing all this properly.

I’m using Nero Recode 2.0.0.12 to backup a DVD Movie. For quality reasons, I only want to burn the movie, so I simply select “Remake a DVD” and then import “Title 1” which is the Main Movie. Nero Recode then produces the following files:

VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB
VTS_01_3.VOB
VTS_01_4.VOB

Is this correct? The reason for my concern is that the following VOB files are missing:

VIDEO_TS.VOB
VTS_01_0.VOB

It’s my understanding that VIDEO_TS.VOB usually contains the FBI warning or some such information, and VTS_01_0.VOB contains the menu for Track 1. Is there any reason that that such a DVD would not be playable in some DVD players? I tried my two players and they seemed to work fine.

As for the FBI warning, well I’m certainly not going to miss that. However, because I’m missing a Menu for Title 1 and one of my players begins playing the movie automatically, I sometimes miss the beginning of the movie. Yeah, I know… I simply have to hit the stop button a couple of times to reset it, but it’s just a little annoying that it doesn’t wait for me to say START. It sure would be nice to have a very simple Menu, but I don’t think that Nero Recode can do that. Anybody know of a easy solution… other than hitting the stop button of course?

Thanks,
Glenn
