I’m in Dallas, by the way. But what you’re saying is that even though the files appear correct, they aren’t, right? Now that is quite a fettle of kish.
And another by the way, I have known about other DVDs and those names came up about a year ago when I began to get the idea that the DVDs weren’t permanent. But I just went 'round and 'round with programs, brand names, burner varieties and so on. I give up on the media.
I’m going to use two 1G USB (copied) detachable hard drives as backups, and make copies as I need to, or watch the show on the computer. I spent hundreds of hours making lables, going to the library and getting movies from all over the US to accumulate my collection. IMHO, DVDs are good for about a month, tops. And, of course, I now have doubts about CDs.
I have to say, though, I’m still not convinced that the trouble isn’t ME! I mean, after all, I have done things before that weren’t, well, [U]exactly[/U] appropriate. I’m only working with two programs that overlap in function.
Are these .bup and .vob and so on, the same format set? Whycome I can’t just copy them into a VIDEO_TS file folder, add an empty AUDIO_TS folder and be done with it? Do you think one of the segments could be corrupted? I could try again I guess. I have six copies of the movie in question. Shrink should be able to open it, but it can’t. Hmmmm, perhaps I should read the error message Shrink coughs up?
