    Hi all-
    I'm new to the forum but was wondering if somebody could direct me to a program that would allow me to rip a DVD from vob files?
    Thanks in advance,
    Jon

    Sorry for a little ineptitude, I'm new at downloading any kind of video. As far as the source they are files I downloaded of a P2P site...here's the description
    Video Attribute :
    Video compression mode : MPEG-2
    TV system : 525/60 (NTSC)
    Aspect Ratio : 4:3
    Display Mode : reserved
    Source picture resolution : 720x480 (525/60)
    Frame Rate : 29.97
    Source picture letterboxed : Not letterboxed
    Bitrate : Disk 1 8.000 Mbps
    Disk 2 8.400 Mbps
    Disk 3 8.400 Mbps

    The files show up on my computer as just VBO.

    My hope was to burn them using dvd-r (off of a macbook).

    You can use Popcorn but that program has a fee attached to it. It really works well though.

    Clevin-
    Thanks for the info! The site I downloaded it from already has the images in a *iso format. Is it possible to just use the macthe ripper than to burn those files onto a DVD? (I ask because I came across a free download just now).

    oh, dear, that would be really easy
    use either simplyburns or burn to burn the image (*.iso) to dvd, just choose their "burn image" function.
    mac the ripper can rip your DVD disk to your hard drive as VOB files, so its not what u need here.

    I also use VisualHub (look on google for it) and tell it to burn that .ts or .vob into a dvd image.
