nice new site design, last time (long time ago) i visited this site it was darker and feeled more "personal". but hey, it looks more professional now. ;)

ok my question:
i want to backup a dvd the first time.
used dvdshrink to "extract" all the data from original.
now i tried to use this "image" with deamon tools to watch the film (its a laptop so i an easily carry it wherever i want).

i tried to mount the image as virtual-cd/dvd rom but it shows a empty folder.
i used the i-explorer to look into and all i see are 21 VOB IFO and BUP files.

my question is :
-how can i "mount" this data ?
-with what can i extract another kind of image file if this VOB IFO BUP stuff is unusable

did i mentioned this is my first try to backup dvds ? :oops:

If youÒ‘ve WinDVD use the "DVD from folder" option (files have to be in VIDEO_TS folder).

thank you ,
and if i want to burn it so that a dvd player autoplays it i just have to burn this folder ?

If you take a look on an original DVD there is also an empty AUDIO_TS folder - this should be burned also for compatiblity issues.
