Req advice, video DVD
A friend is stuck, and it is outside my field of expertise (video/dvd) as well.
He borrowed a couple of anime DVDs and somehow managed to rip them to his hard drive. (They work fine with DVD player.) But now understandably he wants to burn them back onto blank DVDs and remove from the HD.
Handbrake doesn't even see the folder, only looks for a DVD in the optical drive. VisualHub does not recognize 8 of 19 files (.bup, .ifo). If you go ahead and say process, it just goes to a point (about 25%) and does not move any more.Toast 8 also gave up.
By the way, each folder is bigger than 5 GB so I don't know what settings he used to rip. VLC plays them back at 16:9 (850:480 pixels)
I don't know what else to suggest to him. And I don't think he can get his hands on the original DVDs again. Some compression is fine, but it is not for iPod use.
Any advice would be appreciated.
