    I purchased a dvd frm the rd of mumbai which had 5 movies in it , now it has a crack in it (physical crak)so i need to bak up all the movies which software will do the needful ,
    Can the full dvd be replicated having same quality within one or 2 or 3 blank discs(cdS)
    Is it necessary to rip it completely and then convert it into various formats or there is sum option to directly rip it in desired format or other vcd formats which occupy less space.
    I know there r several similar topics in the forum but cudnt find it so threads wil also be help full.
    Also wat is .vob ,is it video format and does it need .ifo.

    ??
    A CRACK ?
    not even a SCRATCH ?
    no drive will read a cracked dvd m8 as far as i know ...

    however if it works
    then there are topics u can easily find here
    anyways first u need a ripper to rip those VOB files from the dvd ...
    VOB's are to DVD's like MPG's are to VCD's
    for thise use either smart ripper / dvd decrypter
    now this will automatically select the longest file as the movie to be ripped ( usually each movie will have 2-3 VOB's in the case of these multicompilation discs )
    rip the movie to a folder. .. again use the software ... select a diff movie and rip it to a diff folder
    ull know what im talkin abt when u use the software ... it shows length of each "chapter" which will each be above 1.5 hours ofcourse .. so u know those are ur movie files

    now with the VOB's in tact .... follow this

    http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5338

    now u have to follow these steps to make ur avi or vcd .... u have to go thru the step of saving the VOB's on ur HDD ...
    cuz even if u do it directly ... those files are gonna get saved temporarily on ur hdd anyways

    converting each movie will take 2 cds fr a VCD for english movies .. and 3 for hindi depending on the length of the movie ofcourse
    the video quality will be good
    its ur audio quality that'll suffer
    specially since these dvd's already have low quality audio
    anyways to make a 5.1 channel SVCD follow this

    Never put a cracked cd/dvd in a drive...The rpm at which it spins is enough to blow it to pieces. Btw, this happened to my friend. Anyway it's pirated.. :D

    As gamefreak14 said, never put a cracked CD/DVD in a drive or it will self-destruct in some seconds. :lol:

    the main querry is """Can the full dvd be replicated having same quality within one or 2 or 3 blank discs(cdS)
    Is it necessary to rip it completely and then convert it into various formats or there is sum option to directly rip it in desired format or other vcd formats which occupy less space. """

    ice - No the movies are not in avi formats. I think I know which DVD he is talkin abt as well...I had the same...I wondered the same thing as to if they are just 5 AVI's they werent. And the best thing is my DVD player which is 3 years old played it all without a hitch...fancy that....

    akit - IF you want to convert it to VCD try ur luck...doubt its gonna happen with a crack in the middle. And each movie has to be ripped but it can be directly ripped into a desired format such as mpg or avi thats ur issue. But quality will be lost when convered into a VCD. So since each of these movies will be above the designated 80 mins Its impossible to sutff the movie in one CD. so you will need 2 CD's per movie. Which is 10 CD's mate.

    DVD Decrypter can do the job for you. Put the DVD in the drive and DVD Decrypter can rip them.

    If u have Nero Recode it can convert VOBs to MPEG2 files.

    Then it depends on how u want to store them.

    Also try dvd shrink but u may lose quality

    I think the movies are just copies from pirated VCDs. no way you can fit 5 mpg2 movies in one DVD with 5.1 surround. even if they are DVD quality pictures the sound will be just stereo. i have seen lots of this crap.
