earlier 2day i was ripping some DVDs using DVD decriptor and now i have a folder full of .IFO, .VOB and .BUP files

i really want to turn the DVD into a 600-750MB avi file so i can back it up on a CDr
i know im supposed to do something with DRdivx yet i have no idea how to do it

Ok, I'm guessing you have Dr Divx? In which case, there are step by step guides to using Dr Divx from the support forums.

Do you know where those are?

Why do you feel stupid? Because you have the program Dr Divx and you haven't checked the guide, or because you don't have the program?

Let me know... there are several ways of doing it, including using freeware stuff as opposed to Dr Divx (paid).

Whats the name of the freeware Lo?

I used VirtualdubMod to encode vob to divx the other day but she was based on an old version and wouldn't let me mess with the audio encoding,and damnit,i want complete control....

Isn't it Gordian Knot (http://gordianknot.sourceforge.net/) that is free?

I use Gordian Knot but have experienced mixed results with different DivX codecs - audio is always great but video quality varies even when using the same settings for bit rates.

I have files ranging from 600 - 2500 MB. Obviously the 2.5GB file is outstanding quality and the movie is quite a long one.

Half the problem has to be with the various different codecs installed on the system.

I had the same problem, until I downloaded and ran "The Big Fix" ... that cleared up all my issues.

In hindsight I think it was probably because half were done with DivX Pro and maybe a couple with DivX 3?

wouldnt the quality be affected by how many passes are made?
