I have been using the below method to rip and burn DVD movies and until now it has worked fine. I don't have any problems burning movies that will fit onto a single DVD-R. I have also managed to burn movies that require splitting over 2 DVD-Rs. I have found that wherever the VOB files are of the form VTS_01_X.VOB I am able to successfully split and burn the movie. However, if the VOB files are not of this form, say VTS_02_X.VOB, I am unable to burn the movie successfully. Can someone please help me out? I've read through a lot of the postings on this forum but am unable to find an answer. I should mention that I am unable to copy any additional files from the original DVD since I no longer have it (I hope this doesn't mean i'm screwed). My Method... I have ripped the movie part of the DVD to my harddisk using DVD Decrypter, so that I end up with... RIPPED DVD ---------- VTS_02_0.IFO VTS_02_1.VOB VTS_02_2.VOB VTS_02_3.VOB VTS_02_4.VOB VTS_02_5.VOB VTS_02_6.VOB VTS_02_7.VOB Then I open VTS_02_0.IFO in IFOEdit and click on 'VOB Extras'. I enable the Split to 2 DVD-Rs option and set the destination directories and then click 'OK'. Next on Stream list I go with the layer changeover as the split point and click 'Split It'. On the next screen I strip the subtitles and click 'Strip It'. Then I check all the VOB files and click 'Strip It'. After IFOEdit has done creating new VOB files I end up with...

I then exit IFOEdit and open it again, this time I click on 'Create IFOs' and create VIDEO_TS files for disc 1 and 2 from the VOB files. Finally I end up with this... DISC 1 ------ VIDEO_TS_IFO VIDEO_TS_BUP VTS_01_0.IFO VTS_01_0.BUP VTS_01_1.VOB VTS_01_2.VOB VTS_01_3.VOB DISC 2 ------ VIDEO_TS_IFO VIDEO_TS_BUP VTS_01_0.IFO VTS_01_0.BUP VTS_02_0.IFO VTS_02_0.BUP VTS_02_1.VOB VTS_02_2.VOB VTS_02_3.VOB Then using Nero, which i've used successfully before, I attempt to write both DVD-Rs. The first disc writes without any error messages but there seems to be a problem during playback when attempting to skip backwards through the movie (it skips forwards instead). The second disc refuses to write, Nero gives the error message 'Required file VTS_01_1.VOB is not present'. Please help!!!
