Angry-2 Extracting tracks from several DVD's to make a compilation. How?

Help! I can't figure out how on earth how to do this..... I have tried several things to no avail.

I have 3 DVD's created on my set top DVD recorder connected to my TV. (Lite On 5005). These DVD's each contain about 15 tracks each, and the material is not in any real order, not even chronological.

I want to make 3 NEW DVD's where I have taken these (15*3) 45 tracks and put them where I want to on each DVD, in an order I choose obviosuly.

I can take these DVD's to DVD decryptor and extract them down to VOB, IFO, and BUPs, but of course they are not broken down by track.

Any ideas HOW I can accomplish this goal?

If I'm understanding you correctly, I believeyou can do this with Shrink. You can rip the tracks using start and end points, then you can 'complile' using re-author mode and select the ripped tracks you've made.

Default DVD compilation creation from various tracks.

But SHRINK won't even open the DVD. It yields a "Invalid DVD Structure" error when you try to open it either as OPEN DISK or OPEN FILES. This is the file structure on the DVD if you browse it in explorer:

The disk contains 2 folders:

VIDEO_RM
VIDEO_TS


VIdeo_RM has the following files: VIDEO_RM 1024 KB DAT File
VIDEO_RM 32 KB IFO File
VIDEO_BUP 32 KB BUP File

Video_TS has the following files: VIDEO_TS 14 KB IFO File
VIDEO_TS 14 KB BUP File
VIDEO_TS 800 KB VOB File
VTS_01_0 72 KB IFO File
VTS_01_0 72 KB BUP File
VTS_01_1 1,048,574 KB VOB File
VTS_01_2 1,048,574 KB VOB File
VTS_01_3 863,300 KB VOB Files


???????? Any ideas?

Can you open the DVDs with DVDDecrypter?

I can OPEN the DVD, and DVD decryptor reads them, but cannot thoroughly decrypt them. There are 3 VOB files on this disk. The 1st one goes through fine, the latter 2 both fail decryption.

Try copying just the VIDEO_TS folder to your hard drive. Then open the DVD in DVD Shrink or whatever by navigating to that folder.

You should be able to process your DVDs with (commercial) "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (Different than "TMPGEnc" and "TMPGEncPlus"). The following is from the "TMPGEnc DVD Author" Help file:

"You can add a DVD-Video previously authored by TMPGEnc DVD Author or a DVD-Video recorded in DVD-VR made on a DVD recorder or on a DVD-RAM recorder as a clip."

You can obtain a FULLY functional free 30 day trial version of this commercial program at:

www.pegasys-inc.com/en/product/tda.html


If you have more questions, always feel free to ask them...

With my 5005 I use the drag and drop of the VIDEO_TS folder to my HDD. Then you should be able to use DVD Shrink In reauthor mode snipping the vobs into each segment you want. Then u could use TitleWriter for a simple menu. It comes with templates for 2 or 4 movies and up to 9 episodes I think. These are free, "TMPGEnc DVD Author" is commercial.

Default DVD Shrink Re-author mode with Lite On LVW-5005

Wait, so your saying copy the VIDEO_TS folder in it's entiretity to HD, then open DVDshrink and choose reauthor mode and point to that folder on your HD?

I will try this and post back. I suspect a problem, but you say you have done this before?

With anything recorded on the 5005 there is no need to decrypt since they are not encrypted.

I got confused from when the 5005 wrote in the DVD+vr format and we usta have to drag and drop the VIDEO_TS folder to the HDD to make copies using Nero. No dvd shrink will not allow you to reauthor the files even after burning with Nero. Sorry 'bout that ! Your still going to get the Invalid DVD Structure message.

Post Creating a Compilation.....

Well, I may be half way there......


I have opened a DVD made from the LVW-5005 and extraced it's contents through VOBBlanker...... Then I could open it in DVDSHrink in Re-author mode...... Now I can look at each track by track and drag the ones I want over to produce the DVD in NERO, hopefully.
HOWEVER, I have 4 DVD's I need to do this too, and need different tracks from each. I could perform this with all of them, but the tracks are labled "track 1", "Track 2", etc for each DVD processed. This makes it very confusing. Does anyone know how I can rename these tracks? Shrink is going to bounce them (the ones I choose) back into VOB's to be processed by NERO.
