    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.

    No offense, but I won't even read what you tried. I would recommend using DVD Shrink (ripping) & Nero (burning). It is as easy as that. This is probably one of the best/easiest processes out there.

    i've tried that, maybe you can give me some advice as to why dvd shrink does not read saving private ryan (it's a dual density disk but that shouldn't prevent the read) it gets stuck (actually crashes the program) when it gets to the first .vob file

    thanks for any help or guidance,

    mildwild,

    Do you get any error messages when this occurs?

    ssantiago,

    That really is the hard way of doing things. I would go with what mastaprk said and use Dvd Shrink and Nero. Save yourself time and money on Advil.

    I figured out my problem but now have 100 more. I bought DVD XCopy platinum and life is good.
