Hi, I discussed this issue with another member, but am clarifying the question. If you do not know the answer, could you please refer me to a specific online forum that deals with issues of DVD ripping. Thanks!
I am an English professor and I am preparing a video on Shakespeare. I have done this before, but have run into some minor technical glitches.
This presentation involves ripping movies from various DVDs, then converting them and reassembling various scenes from them on a single DVD. Again, I am not a total newbie to this, but a bit of a technical novice.
I did this last year and produced an amazing video. I am trying to use the same tools: DVD Decrypter for ripping, and AVS Video Converter for conversion to either AVI or WMV.
Here is the problem. I can successfully rip the files no prob with DVD Decrypter. Its a snap. However, when I go to convert the video files using AVS Video Converter, this program cannot see the ripped video files.
To be more specific, the rip copies more than 20 files successfully. The large video files are VOB files, 0.99 in size, labeled VTS_01_01, etc. These cannot be found using AVS Video Converter, even though I know they are there.
A little more background: I am not a techie and have a slow learning curve. I would prefer to stay with these two programs, if at all possible, since I know how to use them. Also, I am limited on budget. If I do have to switch programs, please try to recommend a quality freeware solution, or something low-cost.
So my questions are:
1) What the heck is going on?
2) Why cant AVS Video Converter see the large VOB files?
3) Are there any settings I can change in either program to fix this problem?
4) If I cant fix it with these two programs, what similar, low-cost tools might help me make this video?
Thanks very much in advance for reading and responding to this post.
