[quote=StarDew;2200713]I decided to experiment with a +RW disc that had 1 movie on it and some left over space.
I d/l the correct Decrypter.
I ran it first as the entire disc. oops
Then set mode to IFO and ran it. Couldn’t find the output. Then I ran it again in IFO. btw created a folder and empty VIDEO_TS folder for the output.
I tried to play the ripped folder in VLC and it wouldn’t work. Buffer overflow.
I thought maybe I am supposed to now run DVDFAB 5 but alas, it wouldn’t read the ripped folder. I have spent 5 hours playing with this so here I am again.
Please I ask for patience here. I don’t know if I did this correctly. Is the output folder of the Decrypter ready to play? Was I supposed to follow ISO the steps in the link that [B]t0nee1[/B] provided? I don’t understand how to determine the correct VTS. I am assuming it means VIDEO_TS or has it to do with the vts_01 type files?
I am nervous asking all these questions but then I am a true newbie when it comes to working with DVDs. I appreciate all the help provided and your time.[/quote]No problem: this is the Newbie forum and I’m sure we’ll get you there
Below is the window from DVD Decrypter, set in IFO mode and reading a +VR disc in my machine. On the right-hand side, upper window you can see the main video title in the first video title set (VTS 1) is PGC 1; highlighted and being of length 1hr 17 min 37 sec (the fact that it appears twice - also at PGC 3 - is a quirk of VR and represents the edited version).
On the left-hand side halfway down, under ‘Destination’ is the folder where the ripped video will be stored. You can change that by clicking the folder symbol slightly to the right and choosing a different location. You can see I’ve chosen C: emp.
Clicking the big DVD -> Disk symbol starts the rip. The files will be named something like ‘VTS_01_1.VOB’ and ‘VTS_01_1.IFO’. The IFO file is there just for completeness and you can probably forget it.
Rename the VTS_01_1.VOB to something meaningful, and change the file extension from .vob to .mpg.
Now try playing the ripped .mpg file in VLC.
