Can I back up Menu + Main titles only?

Post by CZ Eddie »

A problem with backing up TV shows is the main titles on it are sometimes out of order.
I started thinking about backing up the entire ISO so I could get the disk menu and select the episodes in order via the disk menu.

But there is so much other junk on the disks.
Is it possible to back up only the main title AND the part of the disk that includes the menu?

So I could open it in my Media Player like a regular ISO or ISO folder structure and go to the disk menu and choose which episode I want to watch?

makemkv isn't the tool for you. you want to reauthor the disc.

IIRC the MKV format does not support menus so the answer is no. It's possible DVD Shrink shows the correct order of the files and you could use it to re-author the disc. Or check some of the thread on this forum that deal with not getting the proper episode order when ripping episodic discs. Maybe someone already has devised a foolproof method.
