    Ok, so I'm going off to Uni soon and as such I'm importing all my CDs etc to iTunes.


    Well, I've finished that so now I'm on to DVDs >_>

    I've got them all done except Architexture (a DVD that came with Archetype by Tonedeff) as I want that as a virtual DVD as opposed to a single movie (.mp4) file that I can't select things chapters on etc.

    So yeah, I'm using MacTheRipper to take ALL the data from the DVD and put it on my harddrive but now I'm left with a load of .vob and .ifo files. I need a .iso (I think, or I have in my past experience) to run it as a virtual DVD so how do I go about converting all these files into this? I can open the .vobs in VLC, and .isos work in that as well.


    Sidenote: I love the artwork for Archetype - so stylishly done. Tony Rojas, I salute you.


    So, yeah, any help here?

    You can open the raw dvd data folders created by MacTheRipper in DVD Player.

    There is no need for a virtual cd/dvd format of any type as it is completely unnecissary.

    Additionally, you can encode chapters in an M4V file, along with alternate angles, audio tracks and subtitles.
    You may want to take a look at Metadata Hootenany.

    dvd imager or ffmpegx can convert those files from mactheripper into a .iso file.
    Also, the new simplyburns rev 180 can also directly rip your DVD into a .iso file, but might result a file larger than 4GB.

    I think Toast can create ISOs from DVDs but i'm not 100% sure.

    FFmpegX didn't work at all. I'm just getting SimplyBurns to try it out... The size doesn't bother me much - I have a lot of HD space.
