I'm sure that this subject has been done to death all over the internet BUT.... ....as time goes by, software changes and makes tasks easier than previous, so maybe things can be done now that couldn't previously BUT.... ....I can't find any 'How To' guides that I understand (they seem to assume you automatically know DVD File structure and the meanings of 'IFO mode', 'Virtual Drive' or 'Mounting' etc. etc.). I don't! I already use DVDShrink to rip just the film to my Hard Disk, with no compression, using the PC as a film Jukebox. DVDShrink makes it all simple without having to have any technical understanding. I have no interest in recording to a 4.7Gb Disc, which what most of the guides, I have read, assume you want to do. All the films I've put onto the Hard Disk to date are single Discs (DVD5 or DVD9) BUT what I would dearly love to do is now: 1) Where a film is on two Discs (Pearl Harbour, LOTR) I want to be able to have it as a single, seamless, non-compressed film on my HD. 2) If I can achieve 1) above I would then love to be able to take related films and join them into one huge seamless film. The obvious candidate for this would be the LOTR trilogy (extended version of course). So, in the case of LOTR, I would want the films joined without the credits (at the beginning or end) and if needed, a short fade between them to avoid a jump. Working chapters as well (even if that's over 80)! So are 1) & 2) doable? 1) would be the easiest to do I assume but imagine also an 11 hour LOTR . Any ideas, guides or links to guides?
