A lot of people are making up their own home movie DVD's, these range from previously made VCD's to Windows Media Player files in AVI format. With the increase in internet connection speeds, its now possible to even share your DVD's with other people.
You may have had your wedding authored to a DVD and would like to make a copy of it, or add to it. Some systems cannot hold one large VOB file, some transfer programs will automatically split up the files for you.
This is not a guide about copying commercial DVD's those type of DVD's are protected anyway. So do make sure that the VOB files you are using belong to you, or you have permission from the owner to use.
Ill assume that the VOB files you have are from different sources, which you would like to add to one DVD., so you dont have the original IFO files.
Make a folder in your hard drive called
VIDEO_TS this will later be used to construct your DVD
Make a folder on your hard drive to store all the
files, then copy all your VOB's into it
It is important to name them "VTS_01_001.vob" to "VTS_01_003.vob"
Now Click Edit > Join Clips
Now select the VIDEO_TS folder to save the new
Click OK on the next screen
If all is well you should now see the program copy
the VOB's to the new location
Now close this program.
Load Ifo Edit,
IfoEdit will now construct the new VOB files
Now set the language
Do the same for both if you have AC3 audio
Now click SAVE and overwrite existing files
Now highlight TS_01_1.IFO
and do the same
Click SAVE and overwrite existing file
Next Click the Get VTS Sectors
Button, and click Yes
Take a look in your VIDEO_TS Folder You should
now have some extra files .BUP and .IFO
This is now hopefully a working DVD structure and ready to burn to DVD
Burn to DVD ?
Select the DVD Root as your VIDEO_TS , click Burn
Load Nero and select the image from your hard drive.
Remember this is not a DVD copying guide, where the procedures would be different anyway
