DVDFab Platinum - How Make Autoplay of Copy Jump to Main Menu?

I want to make my DVD copies automatically “Jump to Main Menu” when inserted instead of being forced to go thru all the Previews & other stuff that a viewer is typically forced to see before getting to the main menu on the original DVDs. Although I want to bypass this stuff on an autoplay insertion, I still want to preserve the ability to select Previews and such from the Special Features selection in the Main Menu. But I digress …

What is the best way to make a “Jump to Main Menu” happen on autoplay?

If this is not an automatic feature of the “Full Disk” copy function :sad: , it would be REALLY NICE to add a checkbox for user selection before clicking the Start button to make the Jump happen during the rip/copy/build process. :iagree:

If making such a jump happen requires using the “Customize” function, what are the process steps required to make it happen?

(These issues would be nice to add to your pending Tutorials as well. :iagree: )

Thanks for the help in advance,

Hi powerjak,

I’m using not only DVDFab Platinum. A second program helps me to do the things that i cannot do with DVDFab. It called “ConvertXtoDVD” from VSO. It’s not free and i’m not sure, if it helps you. Try out the trial version. There is an option to go directly to menu or video.

Don’t buy another program!

Use the Jump2PGC Upon DVD Insert Feature of PgcEdit. Guide on site.

Direct link to guide. PgcEdit is one powerful tool to have in your arsenal! Once you start learning the basics you’ll find you will be using this tool for most of your DVD editing like I have.

Perhaps Fengtao can consider this feature as a future enhancement…not a high priority on my wish list.

That’s an excellent guide Les.

Very useful and very comprehensive.

I have to agree with blutach. PGC Edit rocks! Blutach has been very helpful to me for his guides. And I can’t forget to give praise to r0lZ for his wonderful program.
