Saving Subtitles when copying DVD

Hello,

I want to save some DVDs to a portable hard drive for ease of travel.

I have been able to copy the DVD files to the hard drive and they appear as 'Audio TS' and 'Video TS'.

However, I seem only to be able to play the individual segments of the DVDs rather than watch as a whole. In particular, this prevents me from accessing the menu screens to select subtitles etc. Since some of the films are foreign language I need to access the English subtitles.

Is there any way to do this?

I have tried using Nero to convert the DVD files but this takes about 3-4 hours per DVD which I would rather not waste.

Thanks

Depending on the DVD the main video may live in the VIDEO_TS.ifo file. You can load this into VLC Player or any other decent video playing software and access the menus from there.

Thanks Neil,

Worked brilliantly and can now access subtitles extras etc from my media player.

I had just been opening the individual episodes and didn't really know what all the other files were.

Thanks again

Simon
