Question Can I encode VOB by VOB?

I have 6 VOB files and each is about 1 GB. Encoding all of them at once would take too long, about 14 hours for me. Is there a way I can encode just 3 of them at a time and then merge it back together? I already have the audio finished into an MP3 file, and I'm running Gordian Knot. Would this work, or would the compression thingy with the passes not result in a correct file size? I would have to combine them then split it to fit onto 2 CDs.

Another question - would any frames ever be dropped from encoding? Example: I *had* a TV Tuner card, and when capturing from TV, if I do a lot of hard drive activity, bunches of frames will be dropped because I guess it couldn't get the frames in time. Another example: when converting RM to AVI, I heard frames will be dropped if the computer isn't fast enough. So now would frames be dropped during encoding if my hard drive suddenly picks up activity, say loading a large program?

If you use DVD2AVI you can select which vobs you want to encode and you would be able to encode 3 at a time instead of all of them. But it wouldn't make any difference in how long it took you to do it. Regardless of how many you do at a time it will have taken the same amount of time at the end.
Then you can use VirtualDub to merge them together and merge the MP3 audio into the file. Then you can split that one large file into however many you need to store on CD.
As far as dropping frames while encoding...No, you don't lose frames. The program with just slow down in order to keep up. It's not the same as capturing.
