    Hi just got a new ATV and installed ATV Flash. Have all my DVD's ripped to an external drive using DVD Decrypter (win 7), all the files are in their own directory straight from DVD decripter. On 99% of my DVD's they play fine BUT I have to manually select each VOB file or start with the first one. The problem is none of the DVD menu's work this way, so I cant select audio set up or chapters or in case of music DVD's i cant select individual tracks.
    However one of my DVD's has put all the files in to two directorys named audio_TS and Video_TS...this DVD plays straight away and allows selection of menus with ATV remote. All dvd's were decripted using same package (DVD Decripter) and I dont know why only one DVD has used the _TS directories BUT its the only one that works perfectly. As I am new to all this can someone help me?? (and fix so all work with menus)

    The output of a product called DVD2OneX http://www.dvd2one.com/ is always separate folders for video and audio, such as the one "working" one you describe. If you are looking for a way to create those folders for all of your DVDs you might want to look at that. With it you can choose to copy the whole disc, which means it won't re-compress the VOB files, though using it does mean an extra step after you rip the DVDs to your hard drive.
