ipod and Toast 7

Question

Hi all,

I've got a huge problem. I'm trying to put some DVD's that I own on my ipod so I can watch them on a flight. I'm only starting with one DVD at this point so I can figure out how to do this.

 

I've used mactheripper and loaded the main feature on my hard drive. I then use Toast 7.1.2 and go to load the main feature folder, I open the Video_TS folder and there are 5 VOB files that open on the left. I highlight them all and drag them over. 2 of the 5 show up. (not sure why?...) I then highlight the two VTS files and then click on export} ipod (recommended)} CHOOSE. The Digital Video Export starts. I come back later, maybe an hour and the progress bar is all the way at the end and just sits. it will stay this way all night if i let it. The 5 times I've tried this, it's the same everytime. It gets stuck for lesser words at " EXPORTING VTS_01_1"

Not sure what to do here....

 

any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Place the ripped VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop (not inside any other folder). In the Toast Media Browser choose DVD with the top button. With the lower button go to the titles level. Now drag the movie you want from the browser to the Toast Video window. Toast extracts the MPEG video from the VIDEO_TS. When that is done, select the title in the Video window and export.

Can you believe it -- I don't have an iPod yet! I believe iPods are loaded via iTunes. Drag the iPod-formatted file into iTunes.

 

 

Thanks again for all of the help. i've got a problem getting this file ( .m4v ) into iTunes however. anyone have suggestions? i can play it with quicktime but can't drag, import or beat it into iTunes....

 

Thanks!

I don't know how you get an "Exporting VTS" message. I've never seen anything like that. According to your first post you were trying to import VOBs directly to Toast which is not the process I described.

 

Toast expects any VIDEO_TS folder to be complete without any files removed compared with the source DVD. With the VIDEO_TS folder placed on the desktop you must use Toast's Media Browser to select and drag the video content to the Video window. The Browser's top button must be "DVD". When this is done correctly Toast writes MPEG-file versions of the video to the Roxio Converted Items folder. This takes awhile, so you'll know if that is happening. Once that extraction is finished Toast now has the MPEG files it needs to export the video to other formats.
