Specs: Windows 7
i have a rather large dvd collection and am trying to back up legal copies of my favs. i use dvd shrink to crop them but when they appear in my movie file and i try to extract it the file opens into 6 sub folders...video_ts.bup ,video_ts.ifo , vts_01_o.bup , vts_01_0.ifo , vts_01_1 & vts_01_2. this is probably a very easy fix for everyone else but i am extremely new to pcs and get frustrated very easy . how do i fix this so the dvd rip file remains as just audio and video. any help or advice would be a great help. my thanx in advance.

There seems to be a commercial program that is one of the best ways. Other than that, I'd use handbrake.

Those aren't folders, those are files. The VOB files are the actual video files and that is the standard for DVD, it's not a Windows 7 issue. The VOB files are 1 gig each. The BUP and IFO files are the indexing files. Look at a commercialy produced DVD and you will see that they are also 1 gig in size.
