    I have an older DVD, that I bought new and own, and want to turn it into a single file so I can watch on my various iDevices. I checked the filenames and they are identical on side 1 and 2. I'm kinda new to ripping, but was thinking maybe it would be possible to simply combine all files from both sides in to one folder and then use a program to boil them down to just one file. Probably not possible though. Right?

    Are you sure it's not one of those discs that puts a widescreen (16:9) version of the content on one side and a full screen (4:3) version on the other? Many older discs distributed by MGM did that. I would look to see if there's "Side A/Side B" labeling on the disc hub that would indicate that.

    OP, if you are asking if you can just move side "Bs" files into the same-named folder on side "A", no, that won't work. There are tools to do what you want to do. My favorite is DVD2One: http://www.dvd2one.com/ which does that very well.

    It's Goodfellas and it's literally side 1 and side 2 for the balance of the movie. Like flipping a vinyl records in the very olden days :D

    Rip the main movie as a pair of .VOBs and combine them.
