    Hiya Doofy,

    I find with kids, the best solution is SuperGlue(tm)..

    Superglue one hand over the mouth, the other hand onto one knee and the posterior of the child onto a hard chair - works a treat!!

    Now, onto your question:
    did you manage to successfully rip [bold]ALL[/bold] the main VOBs?

    If you did, you can recreate the structure files and hence the film quite easily.

    I use IFOEdit for that.
    I use DVD2One for compression.
    Then burn to DVD-R, Voila! A backup.

    Have Fun...

    Hiya Guys,

    Hope you took it as humour, the only thing I know about kids is: they are just as difficult to barbeque as cats ;-)

    Doofy,
    YES, you can rebuild the film IF you have ALL the main VOBs.

    You will need:
    IFOEdit

    Step-by-step instructions:
    1 - make a directory called dir_1
    2 - copy the VOBs you have ripped into dir_1
    3 - delete any FILE that STARTS WITH VIDEO_TS
    4 - delete any file that ENDS WITH .BUP or .IFO
    5 - delete any file that ENDS WITH _0.VOB
    6 - now you SHOULD have JUST the film VOBs
    7 - IF NEEDED, rename them (individually) so they fit the form VTS_01_x.VOB, for example:
    if you have a VOB named VTS_03_1.VOB,
    rename it to read VTS_01_1.VOB,
    repeat for the _2.VOB etc. etc.
    8 - Run IFOEdit
    9 - click Create IFOs
    10 - select Create 1 PGC only, select Create Chapter for each Cell
    11 - browse to dir_1, select VTS_01_1.VOB
    12 - make sure Destination directory for IFO files same as source is TICKED, click OK
    13 - wait while it processes
    14 - in the top pane you will see TWO entries, highlight the BOTTOM one
    15 - click Get VTS sectors
    16 - click Quit

    You have now created a valid DVD structure in dir_1
    Rename dir_1 to read VIDEO_TS (uppercase)

    Burn the VIDEO_TS using your burner program (if you need help doing that, give us a shout).

    It looks complicated (IFOEdit IS intimidating but VERY POWERFUL).

    Have Fun...
