I'm almost hesitant to post this because it's really not a problem I'm having, more of a convenience question. I've been able to rip my DVDs using DVD Shrink; however I don't always want to burn them to a DVD to play. I use my desktop for this task, and would like to transfer the appropriate BUP, IFO, and VOB files to my laptop so I can play the movie from my hard drive instead of the optical drive as that uses more battery life. In the VIDEO_TS file that is created via DVD Shrink, there are the following files: VIDEO_TS.BUP VTS_01_0.BUP VIDEO_TS.IFO VTS_01_0.IFO 4 VOB files (which I assume are the main movie broken into 1 gig files plus the leftover amount) I notice I can select either one of the three following files and the entire movie will play: VIDEO_TS.IFO VTS_01_0.IFO and the first VOB file. Sooo, my long awaited question is this. What files besides the 4 VOB files do I need to copy to my laptop in order for this movie to play? I gather there is some dependencies involved, but being still new to this, I don't know what the file extensions mean and their relationship to each other. Many thanks in advance for your help. This is the greatest site! PS - I think my wife would feel better if I was a more normal red-blooded American male and spent more time in real chat rooms talking to women!!
