OK, bear with me. I'm new at this. (My first attempt at copying anything - new computer) I'm going to list what I've done, exactly, up to the point that I hit a brick wall. * Created new folder - My Rips * Copied VOB files to "My Rips" using Smartriper * Using DVD2AVI, selected first ripped VOB file * Previewed first frame, committed necessary values to paper * Selected language track, made necessary changes to audio settings * Created new folder - DVD2AVI Projects * Saved project in folder as SPR.d2v (Saving Private Ryan) * Opened VFAPI, clicked 'Add Job', selected SPR.d2v, checked both vid out boxes, clicked OK, selected RUN, closed * Used DVTool to determine ideal bitrate (809) * Opened CDEx, made necessary changes to settings, according to guide. OK, here's my problem. The guide says, "Also, remember to change the directory where CDEx creates the output files" What do I change them to? I tried creating a new folder - RIFF-Wav - but, when I go convert, no files show in the window and I can't find them in any of the other directories that I created or anywhere else for that matter. What am I doing wrong? Am I missing a step? I am thoroughly confused and exasperated. Please help (in retard speak) as the King's English is clearly too advanced for me.
