    I used "ImTOO DVD Subtitle Ripper" to rip the subtitle from a DVD disc . I got 2 files .idx and .sub . I loaded thm up together with the coresponding video ripped before . Everything worked just fine : I could watch the subtitles on the PC in correct time . However, when I tried to convert these 2 files to .srt , none of the 10 subtitle editing & conversion programs I had could even read them !! ( mostly freewares such as Subtitle Workshop v4.0 Beta 3 & v2.51, SubC - Subtitle Converter v1.2.0.91, Subtitle Edit v1.8, SubCreator 1.2.0.117, DivXLand Media Subtitler v2.05 etc... )

    Please explain & help ....

    Thanks,

    If you still can't convert them, I would just rip them with SubRip and save them as srt.

    ===============

    I'll try SupRib but it looked quite complicated to use :-(
