    Hi gruel, I see you're a "junior member" so I'll assume you have some knowledge or have read threads from this forum, You have mentioned 2 processing programs but have not mentioned what have you been using to convert these MPEG2 files to your VOB files.
    Without the proper files the 2 programs you mentioned can't work with what you're trying to give them.

    In the off chance you haven't bothered to try to convert thesem files to the proper format may I suggest TMPGEnc DVD Author - That will give you your proper format.

    Cheers,

    Pete

    An addition, you haven't mentioned where you're from - do you want NTSC or PAL ?

    Hi, yeh these are copy's, and no pete i havent used TMPGEnc to author them, ive copyd dvd originals before with clonedvd and had no problems copyd straight from 1 disc to the other, i geuss because these are already copys that its not going to be as straight forward as that, im going to have a look at TMPGEnc author, ive not used it before for copying dvds only creating so any advice-tips would be helpfull thanks, im in the uk so i guess PAL is what i want but my dvd player seems to play both formats so im not overly botherd.
    thanks again

    Hi gruel,

    Nowhere in your post did you mention that you were copying copies. I see no problem here unless it’s a firmware upgrade OR a media problem. You should be able to just use disc to disc with Nero OR ISO read / ISO write using DVD Decrypter. You don’t need to change anything to make a duplicate, so forget DVD Author.

    It sounds like it could be a firmware upgrade problem or a media problem (inexpensive media).

    My suggestion is check for a firmware upgrade here:

    Cleaning your media with isopropanol alcohol may be of some help, can’t hurt :D)

    Good luck,

    Pete
