Ripped a dvd - what now?

I ripped a dvd to hard drive using dvd decrypter. It now shows on the hard drive as several VOB BUP and IFO files. How do i burn then? Should I put them all in one folder? Or select them a burn one at a time or select all and burn together? Or is there a step I am missing?

UPDATE I got the dvd to play in WinDVD by dragging all the files across. Windows Media Player would not play the DVD. And the dvd will not play or ask me what to do when inserted as dvds usually do.

When I put the dvd in the drive it opens to show the files. The only way to play is to drag to WinDVD. Other movies play automatically. What have I done wrong? Other movies have the files in folder marked AUDIO _TS and VIDEO_TS
I have no folder only files

Thanks

The files you have ripped to the hard drive should already be in a Video_TS folder if you used File Mode in DVDDecrypter. If you just have the vob, ifo and bup files, you can make a folder with the name Video_TS and put them all into it. WinDVD should be able to recognize this folder and play the movie correctly.

To burn this movie to a disk, use ImgBurn and look at this guide: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=4632 ImgBurn is the updated burning engine from DVDDecrypter. By the way, this will only work if the files are small enough to fit onto a single layer blank dvd. If they are not, you will have to compress them with something like DVDShrink or burn to a dual layer disk.

I suggest doing a bit of reading on the various tools available for backing up dvds. There are guides in the Copy DVD forum, and you might want to look through this thread:

Hi. Thanks for your reply.[quote=Kerry56;2014244]The files you have ripped to the hard drive should already be in a Video_TS folder if you used File Mode in DVDDecrypter.

Does the folder have to be called Video_TS and why? I am curious

OK

Yep I knew that

As a curiosity, could they be burned with Windows Media Player?

Thanks

I don’t think so, but have never tried it.

And to your question about the Video_TS folder. Yes, it has to have that specific name.
