    I am considering digitalising my modest DVD collection and iso seems the best solution, it will play exactly like a DVD in VLC on my computer and I can mount the image in a virtual drive in order to transcribe the movie quickly for my iPad.

    The only problem is that the iso contains all the warnings and trailers of the DVD when I would prefer it to just contain the menus, movie and special features.

    does anyone know how to remove them? either before the rip starts or after?

    I know that DVDDecryptorHD has an option to have the VIDEO_TS folder start right up at the first menu. I don't do ISO's, so I can't say whether it'll rip as an ISO. But I guess you could convert the VIDEO_TS to an ISO with another app.

    Are you Mac, Mac/BootCamp or PC only? My suggestions will depend on your particular situation.

    I use DVDShrink (free) to produce dvd.iso's. For bluray, I have used Clown_BD/ImgBurn. All require AnyDVDHD (slysoft) running in the background. Recently, I have changed to MakeMKV (free while in beta-and it's been in beta long time now and it does not require AnyDVDHD). Mkv's stream better than iso's. But if you want full menu's you pretty much have to go with iso's.

    I was playing around with this today, and if you rip the DVD to the videoTS folder I suspect you can get rid of the trailers by editing the .ifo files in-order to then delete the .vob files or to replace them with blank files.

    it all seems a faff so unless someone knows how to do this, I think I will leave them in after all they are skipable so aren't as annoying as being forced to watch them.

    Have you tried DVDFab HD Decryptor (I got the name wrong in my previous post)? In the free version, you can do a whole disc copy. There's a check box that allows you to go right to the first menu, so you automatically skip right past all of the trailers and previews.

    If you burn a disc using the ripped VIDEO_TS folder, that disc will skip the trailers as well.

    Here's the LINK.

    ok I tried that yesterday and it didn't work :( but I only tried on one DVD as I had limited time,

    but I've decided that ripping to VIDEO_TS is the best way as things like Media Center, VLC and my WD TV Live can actually play that whole folder exactly like it's a DVD that's in a drive, and it can be classed as 'lossless' so retains all it's picture and sound quality, and Handbrake can also read the whole folder so I can convert the movie for my iOS devices too.

    Not sure why it didn't work. For the record, DVDFabDecrypterHD does rip the DVD as a VIDEO_TS folder. It does other things as well, but for your use, you can get a VIDEO_TS as the output.

    The key is that you have the ability to have the DVD start-up at the main menu, instead of having to go through the trailers and such. DVDFab is the only app that I've ever seen that gives you that ability.

    oh I meant that the remove warnings and skip to main menu didn't work, it ripped the DVD perfectly (to a VIDEO_TS folder) and I'm definitely going to use it again, it seems to have more options than AnyDVD too.
