Combining multiple VOBs or Burning 5.1 ac3

by rfredley / February 8, 2006 7:01 AM PST

I recently purchased the Talking Heads Brick which has a dual disc version of all their releases in 5.1 surround. I'd like to combine the 5.1 mix from each of these DVDs into a single DVD. This seems simple enough but I can't get there.

I can extract a title, title set, or just the ac3 files themselves from the original titles. However, I can't seem to find a tool that will allow me to either concatenate the resulting VOB files (from the title extractions) or create a dvd audio disc from 5.1 ac3 files. You'd think Toast could at least do that but it would seem that it's limited to a 128bit 2 channel ac3 files.

Any suggestions on how I might go about getting all these on one disc? Each one is only 300 mb or so... they should all fit on a single DVD once I figure out how to combine the files.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I forgot to mention I'm on a mac.

The comparable software would be DVD2one, and it worked like a charm.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
