Question IfoEdit - Failed to Note Main Movie w/ DeCrypter

From the DVD Backup Guide for DVD Backup using IfoEdit here: http://www.dvdr-digest.com/articles/18_4.html , Important (Note) #1 from Step 1: Rip the entire DVD using DVD Decrypter, says...

You need to remember which title set and files contains the main movie.

and

Step 2 says to load the title set into IfoEdit.

I have a ripped movie on my hard drive that I ripped a long time ago and I didn't note at the time which files contained the main movie.

I'm not even sure whether I ripped it with Decrypter or Shrink, though it was probably Decrypter. (Is there a way to tell?) Attached is a screenshot of the list of files.

I'm going to guess the main movie title is VTS_01_x.VOB where x is 1 through 7. I might also guess that VTS_01_0.VOB and VTS_01_0.BUP are not in the main title because in the example in the guide (under Important #1) the example movie has a very similar looking file list and those two files are not in the that main movie title.

Do you think I'm guessing correctly here? Could I can proceed with these files? I was thinking of including the above two VTS_01 files anyway to be safer (?). Will that screw anything up if they didn't actually need to be included?

I figure to try the burn onto DVD RWs and if it's successful just copy them over to DVD Rs later.

EDIT NOTE: I am in IfoEdit and it only gives me two IFO files to chose from: VTS_01 and VTS_02. i.e. It doesn't list all the VTS_x_x files seperately anyway. I'd say VTS_01 is the correct answer. It would seem I'm OK and on the right track here. (I think.)

Yes, based on the filesizes, it appears that Title 1 is the movie

No, based on the combined filesize, it doesn't seem that DVD Shrink was used...


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

VTS_01_0.VOB is a small menu. The main menu could be in VIDEO_TS.VOB. It's hard to tell.

Take the BUPs - they are copies of the IFOs and are necessary.

Don't forget to do a Get VTS Sectors.

Regards

Hi folks. Thanks for the assistance. In Windows Media Classic I was able to play Disk 1 fine but not Disk 2. Disk 2 was recognized but wouldn't play.

I checked a few things, and found one apparent error but it still didn't play. Due to time constraints I abandoned the effort and burned the backup to one disk. I'll take anohter crack at splitting to two disks with IfoEdit another time.

Hi blutach,
I did do "Get VTS Sectors", and after a couple of times that I went back and fixed something I redid it. I was wondering if it was proper or neccessary to redo it after any change or adjustment.
