[qanda]This thread is about the Iomega UltraMax Desktop Hard Drive hard drive - 640 GB - FireWire / FireWire 800 / Hi-Speed USB. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]im trying to back up my dvds onto my external hard drive. im using DVD Decrypter to rip the dvds. when the dvds are ripped, they show up as several files that i can’t open. i’d like to create a library of my dvd collection on my hd with 1 file per dvd. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Are you making the backups with DVD Decrypter set to ISO read mode? That will make one file with the entire contents of the DVD in it.

Otherwise make the copy in IFO mode and simply choose the biggest title(s). When it’s backed up, change the file extension from .vob to .mpg and it should be playable in a lot more programs.
