    Cool How to store DVD's on a PC?

    What method is out there to store DVDís onto a computer (or a standalone device) and still be able to play by selecting the chapters?
    Am talking here about homemade DVDís Ė not movies or any protected stuff.

    Maybe make an .ISO out of the disk and then use something like Daemon tools (the lite edition will do).

    It'll make it seem like there's another DVD drive attached to the computer, and you can then mount the .ISO, and play it as normal.

    How did you record whatever? So they're on DVD now?? Just copy them across

    If they're proper DVD-Video style, then if you do that, it's harder to make a player recognize menus and chapters.

    Really? How do you get a player to load menus, etc from a normal directory?

    I would store them on an external H/D and put in a folder,as I do with about 150 films.

    .iso all the way, you can mount them like was previously mentioned, or VLC can play the ISO without you having to mount it.

    Just play the main file. Depending on WHAT program you're using, it may or may not show the menu / chapters on the left or right

    I would use DVD Shrink to create smaller ISOs and just store them on an external hard drive.
