I have been trying to rip Gangs of NY in a way that satisfies CloneDVD for a write - all IFOs and the main movie VOBs - and my Hollywood RealMagic MPEG software/hardware setup.
Ripping the main movie in CloneDVD provides about 52% on the quality meter. This gives me a good-enough backup for watching but I’d rather watch a straight rip off our movie HDD through the media box and onto the TV without any further compression.
An IFO Mode rip in DVD Decrypter provides two IFOs:
VIDEO_TS.IFO and VTS_01_0.IFO
If I open the VIDEO_TS.IFO I get the movie splash screen with sound. If I open the VTS_01_0.IFO I get picture and no sound. If I open the first VOB, I get picture and sound, but of course, it only plays that VOB and stops
If I rip in File Mode and add the two remaining IFOs (for a CloneDVD write), my RealMagic software player BSODs and reboots when I open any IFO.
If I rip all files and open VTS_01_0.IFO, picture but no sound. Please don’t tell me I have to IFO edit
Oh yeah, I only get AC3 and no choice of DTS
