    If DVDXCOPY shows less than 4.35GB for the main titles after the extras are trimmed off, then there shouldn't be a problem. They're probably using lower bitarates to fit all 6 episodes on a single-layer disc.

    Try using a RW media if you feel like testing it first.

    Easier than DVD2One, IFO Edit, DVD2One MakeItEasy? I don't own a dvd burner (yet), just curious?

    DVDXcopy has a problem with episodisc's. I've had more luck using dvddecrpyter and Instant Copy.

    Any dvd software will have problems with episodes because the dvd contains more than 1 ifo. Only way to rip episodes is to rip them seperate (that I'm aware of), unless somebody knows the bypass?

    Are there any guides on how to smartly rip episodiscs and burn dvd-r's?

    which tools should i use?

    if i use smartripper to rip the episodes only (omitting everything else), which tools do i use to burn the episodes back to a dvd-r?

    thanks in advance!

    I have a link to an "Idiot's Guide On How to Backup Episodes", but pertains to dvd-r. Look at the link as a general guideline (for ripping) and you'll see how this process is done. You can use DVD2One or DVD95Copy and still make VCD, SVCD backups with your favorite program. I already tested them both, encrypted files, then converted to SVCD and video quality is just as good compared to the "proper" method>
