Splitting a DVD

I have a DVD with 2 old films on it. I want to convert it to *.avi (DivX) files. I have tried DVDecrypt to create an *.iso file and then FairUse Wizard but the resulatnt *.avi file only has the first film in it.
The original DVD has only 2 files on it (Audio_TS and Video_TS). I would love to be able to split this file into two *.avi files if this is possible.

Thank you for your help.

Try DVD Decrypter in IFO mode. It should allow you to rip the two movies individually by PGC.

Thank you very much for your reply.
I have DVD Decrypted the disc and it cames out to 7 files.
VTS_02 Stream Information.txt
VTS_02.0IFO
VTS_02_1 VOB
VTS_02_2 VOB
VTS_02_3 VOB
VTS_02_4 VOB
VTS_02_5 VOB

1 VOB thru 4 VOB are 1023 MB each and 5 VOB is 312 MB.

I don't understand PGC.

It might be missing your question, but you have ripped the vobs I see, I assume this contains both films? Why not convert to avi and then use cut feature of avidemux(or similar) to split avi into two films.

Did you have DVD Decrypter in IFO mode? That's the only time you actually see the individual PGCs listed by runtime.

Thank you for your replies

RE: flebber
I assume these 4 or 5 VOB files contain both films. Double clicking the files yields nothing. How can I open these VOB files and check? The only way I know to convert to *.avi is to create an *.iso and use FairUse Wizrd. Sorry I am not familiar with avidemux.

Now that I have some VOB files I don't know what to do with them??

Re:CWRO3
Yes I used IFO mode and I have a similiar screen to the one you showed, Mind showed a PGC1 and a PGC2 under
VTS_02.

Where do I go from here.

Thanks Again .

Did those two PGCs match the length of the two movies on the disk?

After you select and rip one PGC, rename the VIDEO_TS directory, otherwise ripping the second one will erase the first one. After you have them ripped, try AutoGK for encoding to AVI.

Thanks for your reply.
Each of the PGC is 2:36:44. These are old British war movies and if this represents time I think it probably represents the combined lenght of both films. Assuming they were different times, how could I rip them separately? The output folder ends up with the 7 files I mentioned :
VTS_02 Stream Information.txt
VTS_02.0IFO
VTS_02_1 VOB
VTS_02_2 VOB
VTS_02_3 VOB
VTS_02_4 VOB
VTS_02_5 VOB

What do I do with them?

Thanks again

It may not be necessary to re-rip. If you did indeed rip both titles, you can extract them from the vobs using PGCdemux. However, since we don't know for sure that you did indeed rip both, this may not be the best solution.

Load your DVD into DVD Decrypter in IFO mode. Find the two "biggest" (aka longest) PGCs and rip them). I highly doubt that both of your movies are exactly the same length. They may be close, but not exactly 2:36:44.

If you want, you can post a screenshot like CWR03, in which you expand all of the available PGC's, in case you are having trouble identifying which is which.

Merlin7777 has a point, the two movies may be listed again in different VTS's. If you haven't already done this, right-click in the Input window and select Expand All and see if there are two more PGCs that each match the two separate movies. If that fails, check only the chapters that pertain to the separate movies, or as Merlin7777 suggested use PGCDemux.

Thanks for all your replies
#1 I would like to show you the Decrypter window but I don't know how to put that graphic on to this page.
#2 I have expanded all with the following results:
VTS_01
PGC 1 [00:00:25]
VTS_02
PGC 1 [02:26:44]
PGC 2 [02:26:44]
VTS_03
PGC 1 [1:54:08]
PGC 2 [1:54:08]

I don't understand how to handle these PGC's. What program do I use?

DVD Decrypter. You're already there, just click the PGC and click the Start button. Looks like you've got one done already since DVD Decrypter always defaults to the longest PGC, just click the 1:54:08 one and rip it too.

Okay! I see how to split. Thanks a lot.
Can I somehow make an *.iso file out of all these VOB's so I can stick it into FairUse or can I use some other program to turn these into a DivX file.

index the vobs with dgindex, then use megui, or your preferred application to encode to xvid/divx/x264

AutoGK is still one of the easiest tools for creating an AVI out of VOBs.
