    Hi, okay so i bought a ndsl with r4 cart for my son last night and gaming is perfect. however im trying to get some vids on his card
    and have reached a stonewall. i have a bunch of scooby doo dvds that i ripped to my pc hdd using dvddecrypter and are stored on hdd in iso format that i stream to his xbox via xbmc...now can i convert these 4.5 gig dvd.iso to .dgp format or am i wasting my time?
    batchdgp gives errors, super gives errors, even tried i cheat xtra and fails...everything fails when trying to convert these iso to dgp.
    I have the latest moonshell here but i cant even make a dgp.
    what am i doing wrong?

    Even SUPER gives errors? Geez. Is there any way you can convert it to a more universal media format first? For instance, try converting it to AVI format first, and after that convert to DPG.

    Try downloading this converter (EzBuilder) : http://w13.easy-share.com/1088224.html

    just place your dvd file into the MediaFile Folder and then run EzBuilder.exe

    Then just follow what it says and it will start converting into DPG format.

    When it finishes converting, the program will automatically close and your DPG file should now appear in the "DoneFile" Folder.

    Hope this helps. [​IMG]

    Use the iCheat converter. It converts directly from VOB to DPG, the only real downside being that it doesn't give you any configuration options; all its settings are hardcoded. Video quality is fine though, and it can identify what aspect ratio the video should be without any input.

    Also, given that you say each VOB is 4.5GB, I assume they each include a full DVD's worth of episodes sequentially? If you prefer, you can use DVD Decrypter to split VOBs into individual episodes. Up the top, hit Mode and switch it to IFO (right now it should be on File). Now all the chapters will be listed, and assuming each episode is a single chapter, you can extract a single episode by unchecking everything except for the episode you want. If episodes are split into multiple chapters, you can just hit the checkboxes for the chapters which correspond to the episode you want, and it will output a single VOB of those you selected.

    Run the iso in dvd decrypter in IFO mode and copy the VTS files over to your PC.

    Load a program like AutoGK or Megui then select the first file in the series and convert it to avi. It will convert the entire DVD to avi which you can then convert to DPG

    Or you can skip the extra transcode. Y'know. If you want.
