Yes... I'm trying to rip-off DVDs. Is it possible to use Smart Ripper to make a backup of a DVD to the HD and then use Nero to burn it? Manny DVD-r have already been sacrificed to this effort. Everything seems fine but then while useing Power DVD to play them back I receive an eror message that the DVD must be dirty, which is not the case. I can open up the DVD files and play them individualy but I want them to at least play in order without prompting. Also, can't you make a DVD from just a .vob file, or edit and/or split vob files with Nero? If I try to make a DVD with a .vob file I receive warnings asking for BUP and ISO files. Can't Nero somehow author it's own BUP ISO files?
