Default Reauthoring w/Shrink/VOB/IFOedit missing some sound

Shrink does a perfect job of copying DVD's but when I try to reauthor creating my own menuless production using 15 different rips/backups from 10 different DVD's - each backup in it's own folder (music videos) neither the Nero 6 burned disc image nor the DVD+/-R burned disk media plays well on virtual or desktop DVD players respectively.

The major problem is that there is no sound on some of the clips. Of course everything sounds fine in the Shrink preview window but the burned image or disc does not present the 15 titles with sound as a newly produced DVDR. Sometimes 4 clips will go silent then the next three will have sound. Somtimes a title splits into two chapters or shows up as extras. The ripped sound from so many DVDs is not uniform: AC-3, LPCM in several versions.

I've followed many different guides and tried various techniques with Ifoedit, VOBedit, DVDstripper, Smartripper, DVDdecrypter, and DVDShrink, but I cannot get a flawless compilation of movie clips to work well straight through with sound.

I've used various media types DVD+/-R and these work great with identical copies or mere removal of material using Shrink, but I am backing up clips from various sources and trying to create something original (and menuless) with about 15 "main movie" clips and just cannot get it done. The problem is the authoring not the players because the strick DVDR copies work just fine in the various players available.

I've used VOBedit and Ifoedit to try the same with 15 VOBs but have the same results.

I'd rather not buy any more software yet (like TMPGEnc Author) since I've been burning perfect modified copies from originals with Nero, my only burning software, besides the tools mentioned above.

Surely I can get a menuless compilation of video clips out of the software mentioned above...but how? The many guides I've followed with that software do not suffice.

"The ripped sound from so many DVDs is not uniform: AC-3, LPCM in several versions."

This is most likely the source of your problem...

I think TMPGEnc DVD Author would do what you want if you made each clip a new chapter. You can try it at least without shelling out
This isn't a learning curve ... this is b****y mountaineering!
