Then I should use ffmpeggui to convert to MPEG instead of AC3 and find a program to transfer only not convert? The specs for the demuxed audio is here…

Instead of doing the PAL to NTSC conversion, because I don't want to get ahead of myself and start a half dozen operations... That'll just confuse me. What's the next step with the AC3 file? I can always come back to the "Johnisme.shawbiz" link if I garble the DVD. I will also drop the AVI file into ConvertXtoDVD and see if there is a substancial quality difference.
Thanks for all the help!
BTW, the link for “Johnisme.shawbiz” is broken…
