    Can anyone suggest a way for me to rip a DVD and produce just one VOB file. Currently any ripping I do produces 4 or 5 VOB files. Is this possible?

    cheers,
    Eddy

    I know that on a PC, DVD Decrypter can do this. I too would like something on the mac that could do the same

    I have the same question. On PC I normally rip it with Decrypter (except new Sony disc with new encryption) in ISO mode and I just mount it with Daemon tools when I want to play back or burn.
    Is there a way to do the same in Mac?

    take a look at your VOB files - you'll notice all except the last one do not break the 1Gb limit. this is because of the way DVDs were designed, any file over that boundary is technically 'out of spec', and while it may play ok, some hardware may have trouble reading it.

    however, if you're not burning it back on to a disc, it shouldn't be a problem to concatenate them. a quick google found me a few apps that would do it. ;)
