    Hey all,

    I have a question and would appreciate any help. Basically a client has come to us with a DVD with a bunch of media on it. My boss wants me to add a new piece of video to it. Now, I know how to rip all the tracks individually and create a new DVD, but the problem is they want the menu exactly the same.

    I do not have the original image that the menu is made of, and I was wondering if there is a way of ripping a DVD so that it functions exactly the same but add a new track, and I could just copy the font of the text to label the new track?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Unfortunately, what you're trying to do is really not possible. Once the all of the video and audio assets, including menus are muxed to .VOB files (like they already would be on a properly formatted DVD video), you wouldn't be able to go back to make changes to the menu. You need the original image files for that.

    That is what I feared. Thank you for taking the time to respond to me.
