Kerry thanks for the information . I'm sure VideoReDo TV Suite is a good program from what I've read . I want to save it's trial for something better than this video.
As I will answer t0nee1 below I've had some limited success with AviDemux.
That doesn't work I already tried it.
I had already tried this as an .avi but tried your suggestion.
I didn't watch the complete movie but the .avi & .mpg both lose the audio in the last 6 minutes.Every other spot I checked had audio.
I have been playing with MKVtoolnix so I tried it. The result was good but the .mkv file when converted to DVD compliant is out of sync again.
The .dat file isn't compatible with a lot of software .
MediaInfo just reads it as a container. G-Spot does show it as MPEG2 but doesn't show any audio. DGIndex is where I got the information in the first post.
DVDFlick won't load the single large .vob I created or one of the single .vobs .
It gives this error:
" C:\Users\NORAD\Desktop\TEST1\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_1.VOB has no
usable video track. It will not be added to the project."
This is incorrect as there is a video track.
FAVC will load the .vob & completes the conversion but has no Audio track in the converted DVD compliant folder & files. At least one the plays.
MediaInfo shows an .ac3 audio track in the conversion.
It's the first time those have so completely let me down.
I had a friend bring his laptop over because he has ISOBuster pro on it .I was able to Rip the 7 smaller .vobs from the .dat file with it. After using
"Find missing files & folders" then extracting those. There were no .ifo or
.bup files so ISOBuster just ripped the .vobs.
I joined those & no better results so far.
IFOEdit was able to create .ifo's & .bup's . This allowed me to load the .vob in PGCEdit which gave the following information.
I just don't know where to go from there to maybe correct it.
Mock strip in IFOEdit partly completes but then gives the Windows "close the program "error.
Error loading Nav Pack VTS_01_1.vob at sector 134 in file Nav Pack identifier not valid.
First Nav Pack in VTS_01_1.vob is not of required type
PGCEdit has detected erroneous or missing time map tables in VTS 1
Maybe it will be useful for one of you to help.
