I like Imtoo dvd ripper but the one thing that I am having trouble is with ripping the mixes from promo only. I would like to be able to rip the mix sets and keep them as one file?

I've been using the same program for a couple of years now, with no complaints... http://www.aoamedia.com/dvd_ripper.htm
It's a one-stop batch converter which will rip each music video (chapter) into a separate avi, mpeg1 or mpeg2 file, and for those of you who also want an 'audio only' ripped from the dvd, it can extract a wav file from each chapter, too. There's also a preview screen to help you to monitor progress. My format of choice is divx(avi), but with a higher bitrate than standard. With a bitrate of 2000, your average music video is about 50-60mb.
I've noticed that the divx codec struggles if you're playing a divx music video with a divx background video or divx video logo overlay. Nowadays I just ensure that my background vids & video overlays are mpeg or wmv format, and have no problems.

On the ImToo ripper there is a button with 2 rectangles, next to the start ripping button.  Move the cursor over it and it says show Chapters.  Click it and see if it does what you want.  If it shows 4 small squares it will show the chapters

Mine come out as vob files that seem to work ok.

Hey Videoman

   I had the same problem with getting all the chapters with my imTOO DVD ripper #4.  They all played the  1st one. I had a imTOO DVD ripper #2.0 that
would record the chapters one at a time. It took longer but I got the Job Done.
If you figured out how to do it on Ripper #4 let me know. Make sure you make
backup hard copies of your promo disks before you sell them. What format do
you have? Country, Hot Video or other. Let Me know.

Thanks
Davie Lee

I'm use yasa dvd ripper platinum to rip dvd movie to mpeg1 or mpeg2. It does a good work.

I have been using the ImTOO software and ripping my promo only DVDs directly to mpeg-1 files. I have had excellent success, except for a few small cases. Some of the DVDs when I set them to rip will burn the amount of chapters on the disc (47 original chapters--47 mpeg1 files created), but when i view them it will be the first video ripped over and over again as 47 files, even though the length seems to be that of the chapters I was desiring. In particular, the all time party classics dvd. It rips the first video, which is a blank screen, repeatedly. Anyone seen this problem? Any ideas? Also, if you have over 200 promo only discs what do you do with them after you rip them in? I can be reached directly at streetelite@bellsouth.net or through the forum. Thanks!

The CDDB may be set up for the PO DVDs, but I still doubt it.

The batch file idea would use the PO tab data file as input.  I am trying to design it in my head to be simple and goof proof.  I think if I can parse the PO tabtext file line by line and field by field those pieces can be fed into a generic script that creates the rename bat file....

 

CD to the directory that has the avi files, run the RenameGenerator.bat file that reads the POtabtext file to extract all records for the directory you are within - you can tell the RenameGenerator.bat file what directory you are in or let it figure that out if you used directory names that it can decipher - and the RenameGenerator.bat builds a new specific rename bat file for that directory ... leaves that new bat file in the doirectory.  You can view/edit the new bat file to make sure it is correct then run it.

Huum.... I wonder... You may be on to something!... It still seems kind of far fetched and out there, but batch renaming files is easy, *but since we are dealing with VIDEO and AUDIO there may be a way by using the embeded codecs and cryptic data from the video file itself... but there would still need to be a master "CDDB style" of database somewhere to get and pull this info... That's where it could get tricky.. but possible!

*ABOUT CDDB /  DVD VIDEO auto file naming.... I too wish there was a way to auto name your rips, but so far to my knowledge there is not such a thing (yet) If there is, I want it too!!  I know it sucks and I hate it too, but since "most companies" don't want you to RIP their DVD's using programs like ImToo4, we are all kind of stuck manually namming each and every video file one at a time!!...  (Unlike the CD Data Base look-up for auto naming music cd's, DVD's are a bit harder, because unlike Music CD's, they have Titles, Chapters, Menu's, etc...) DVD's can be layed out and created inso many different ways I just don't see how it's possible, (yet!)

 

I  think the CDDB process works by using an algorythm to create a unique code and that is used to search for the data in CDDB.  (this is based on number of cuts, and so on.... I saw it once in a CDDB info page)  I do not think the key field is the album name ... Maybe any disk can generate a unique code to search with???  Maybe the PO DVDs are in CDDB already?  I doubt it.

 

I can imagine a .bat file being able to read exported tab delimited files with the PO data.  If you name your directories like the PO data is laid out in the columns, you could create a path name to each file that is unique.  That path name can be fed into a dos rename command... it can be done, any volunteers?  Maybe 20 lines of DOS scripting code.
