I have some DVDs backed up to mpeg2 files that were converted from the original VOBs using VOB2MPG. These files playback correctly and I have been able to convert using Handbrake and MediaCoder.
When trying to convert one of these files using DVDFab File to Mobile, the conversion stops about 5-7% into the conversion. I am able to playback the resulting file but of course, its incomplete.
Any ideas what could be wrong?
Yup…there is navigation data (and some other stuff) both in the IFO files and also part of the VOB files that the mobile section needs to properly set up the conversions, synch the audio, etc. etc.
MPEG2 files all by themselves are missing certain things needed for the conversion.
If you can locate a quickie authoring program (DVD Shrink might even work in this case), author the files to your HD, then try a conversion on the re-authored files.
