    it gave me a (VTS 01_1 and VTS 01_2) the first one have 18min and the secound got 9 which makes it 27min totall. if i burn it on a disk, it burn a full movie but that not what i want cuz i own the dvd, i need to join both files so when i watching it and 1 file end i don't have to manually choose the 2file. i would love for it to play as if it was burn on a DVD. No Stops.

    hi
    back to basics i think? are you new to dvd copying?

    ok, those 2 files are ok by the looks of it BUT! 27min film is not right! if you ripped a main movie only with dvd dercytpter or and ripper app it is about 4/5 gig say just for an example, so 27min film sounds wrong here?

    i would rip the whole film on iso read! with dvd decrypter again...

    [bold] =======DVD-5 -> DVD±R, Single layer DVD discs only (*Inc PS2*)=========

    Remove all discs from drives.

    Open DVD Decrypter.

    From the 'Mode' menu, select 'ISO' -> 'Read'.

    Put DVD-5 / PS2 disc in drive.

    Take note of the 'Destination' file name.

    Click the big 'Decrypt' button.

    Take the DVD-5 / PS2 disc out of the drive.

    From the 'Mode' menu, select 'ISO' -> 'Write'.

    Put a blank disc in your DVD Writer.

    Click the little folder icon - 'Browse for source file' - and select the MDS file created for you as part of the steps above.

    Click the big 'Write' button.

    Finished!


    Note: You NEED a chipped PS2 to play these disks. Try http://www.gameworlddirect.co.uk or http://www.modchip.com

    -------------------------------------------

    ========DVD-9 -> DVD±R, using only free software========

    This is one good path to follow if you don't have any DVD software utilities at all.

    Updated: 8th August 2004 (based on hembo's guide)
    Scope of this guide: To copy any DVD9 to one DVD±R(W) with all the contents or the 'main movie' only.
    Hard disc space needed: 20 Gbyte when backing up a movie on 1 DVD9.

    Tools used:
    DVD Decrypter 3.5.2.0
    DVD Shink 3.2 (note: if your drive is not NTFS you must use 3.2 or later)
    Download and install both of the above.
    Setting up DVD Shrink:
    Click on the Edit menu and then on Preferences...
    In the DVD Shrink Preferences window which opens, click on the File I/O tab
    As this guide only uses freeware, make sure that the Enable burning with Nero option is UNCHECKED

    [​IMG]

    Click the OK button

    Ripping:
    Start DVD Decrypter
    Ensure you're in 'File' mode by pressing the 'F' key or selecting it via the 'Mode' option in the menu at the top
    If, for some reason, all files are not selected, press <Ctrl-A> to select ALL the files
    Make a note of the destination folder, for example 'C:\NAME_OF_DVD\VIDEO_TS'

    [​IMG]

    Click the [DVD-image] button to start DVD Decrypter, this will take anything from 10 minutes and up, depending on your computer and DVD drive speed

    [​IMG]

    When it is finished, close DVD Decrypter

    Re-authoring / Shrinking:
    Start DVD Shrink
    Click the [OPEN FILES] button on the main toolbar
    Navigate to C:\NAME_OF_DVD\VIDEO_TS and click [Ok], this will take a few minutes while DVD shrink analyzes the DVD.

    [​IMG]

    When the analysis has finished, you will see the entire structure of the decrypted DVD files.

    Jump to step 16 to backup the entire DVD, (like an episodic or series DVD like Friends or Simpsons), instead of just the 'main movie', and then adjust the compression for the extras and menus in order to leave more room for the main title.


    Click the [RE-AUTHOR] button on the main toolbar and the DVD Browser tab should be active; if not, click on it
    Click and hold on 'Title 1' and drag it to the left-hand pane, under DVD

    [​IMG]

    If your movie is greater than 4.35GB then the movie is automatically compressed as you can see if you click on the 'Compression Settings' tab. Here you can deselect audio tracks and subtitles you don't want in order to minimize the compression of the video.

    [​IMG]

    Insert a blank DVD±R(W) into your DVD-burner
    Click the [BACKUP] button on the main toolbar
    Select ISO Image file and burn with DVD Decrypter as your target device

    [​IMG]

    Select an appropriate target file/folder for DVD Shrink to output to, for example 'C:\NEW_DVD.ISO'
    If your movie is greater than 4.35GB, then you can CHECK the 'Perform deep analysis' option on the Quality Settings tab to enhance the video quality. If it's not, there's no need to compress and you can't select that option.

    [​IMG]

    Click [OK]. If your movie is greater than 4.35GB it will take about 20 - 40 minutes depending on the length of the movie, and the complexity of the mpeg. Otherwise it will only take a few minutes.
    Once DVD Shrink has finished reauthoring and/or compressing, DVD Decrypter will automatically launch and burn the image to DVD without any user intervention
    When you have checked and are happy with the new DVD, you can delete the 'C:\NAME_OF_DVD' folder, the 'C:\NEW_DVD' folder (if it exists) and the 'C:\NAME_OF_DVD.ISO' file

    ========DVD-9 -> DVD+R DL, Double layer to Double layer! (1:1)==========

    Remove all discs from drives.

    Open DVD Decrypter.

    From the 'Mode' menu, select 'ISO' -> 'Read'.

    Put DVD-9 disc in drive.

    Take note of the 'Destination' file name.

    Click the big 'Decrypt' button.

    Take the DVD-9 disc out of the drive.

    From the 'Mode' menu, select 'ISO' -> 'Write'.

    Put a blank double layer disc in your DVD Writer.

    Click the little folder icon - 'Browse for source file' - and select the MDS file created for you as part of the steps above.

    Click the big 'Write' button.

    Finished!

    USE THE .MDS FILE IT CONTAINS THE LAYER BREAK INFO FOR BURNING!

    Note: If your drive supports booktype / bit setting, remember to tell it to burn DVD+R DL discs as DVDROM. This will make them more compatible with players. The booktype / bit setting utility is accessed by clicking on the little 'book' icon when in ISO Write mode.

    hi

    if you want it to play on a normal dvd standalone player you need to convert it from avi to dvd which means a 700meg file will be like 2.5gig, as a guess, they get bigger. its a fact of nature!

    well what i did just now is run the main movie through DvdShrink and use Custom ratio, so i brought it all the way down to make it smaller lol the pic looks the same since it a Cartoon. and now it when from 2-18GB to 534MB.
