    Hi all

    I need to back up my dvd collection,but only want to back up the main movie.If I do this on a film that contains subtitles as standard will the subtitles come out onto the copy or will they be in the extras section ? thus meaning i'll have to find them and add them manually ?

    co's ive just done movie only back up of lion king 3,and there's a part where they start singing whith subtitles up,only the subtitles arent there!

    the main movie contained
    title 33 2,908mb
    title 33(angle2) 2,909mb
    title 34 2,908mb
    title 34(angle2) 2,909mb

    i backed up title 33 and 34.Do you think the subtitles might be in with the 2 angle versions ? as they are 1mb larger a piece ?

    any info is much appreciated.

    Hey shady76,
    Subtitles are stored in VOBs, but whether they are in those VOBs or not I can't tell without looking.
    Open the DVD using DVD Shrink and then click on the angle2 VOB, now press play in the view window. Slide (fast forward) to the singing and see if the subtitles are there.
    There is also a few guides here that may help... http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/subtitle_guide.htm
    They should point you in the right direction.
    Adder.

    I copied the two angle versions,but still no joy.If i open a vob should it actually say subtitle's ? or where best would be to look ?
