Ripping to ISO & Layer Break Position

Recommended Posts

I am ripping my DVDs to a folder using DVDFab HD Decrypter. Then I am using ImgBurn to create an ISO file. When doing so ImgBurn asks me for the Layer Break Position. Should I select the proposed position (usually the best is good/yellow but sometimes average/gray). Or should I just say "Ignore Layer Break Position" because I am creating an iso file rather than burning a real disk? 

Note that I probably will never burn a DVD from that. One way or another I will just stream those directly from a hard drive. Maybe I shouldn't even convert it to iso but just leave the folder...

If you never plan on burning these ISO's to a disc, I don't see why you couldn't just use Ignore Layer Break.  As you say, though, you're probably better off just leaving the VIDEO_S folder on some media for opening.  Otherwise, you'd need something like VLC that supports playing DVD Video ISO's natively or you'd have to take the extra steps to mount the ISO as a virtual drive each time you wanted to play it.

dbminter, thanks for the response. That makes sense. I will just keep the folders. I can always to ISOs later on if I want to.
