That’s a great tip, 007!
I wasted a bunch of time today “re-ripping” some ISO’s that were on my hard drive. Using DVD Decrypter, I initially ripped the DVDs in ISO mode. I mounted the ISO into a virtual drive using Daemon Tools, then -from this virtual drive-reloaded the ISO into DVD Decrypter again. Once I had the ISO back in DVD Decrypter, I changed DVD Decrypter’s mode from “ISO (read)” to “File”, giving me the .IFOs, .VOBs, and .BUPs. Then I proceeded to rip these files to the hard drive so I could use them in DVD Shrink.
After reading your post, I feed like a complete idiot for going through that convoluted process. I mean, it took me nearly all day to do all five discs of Deadwood, Season 1. Although, in my defense, Daemon Tools is somethng that I’m new to. I just downloaded it (and the demo for Alcohol 120%) last night and am still discovering what they can do .
And if anyone wants to know why I didn’t just rip in File mode to begin with: I need the .ISOs to watch the virtual discs on the HTPC using TheaterTek. But I need DVD-compliant files (.IFOs, .VOBs, and .BUPs) if I end up watching the backups on the standalone upstairs
