Ah, glad it worked. Now you can have fun sorting the videos be year, by tour, a folder for promotional videos perhaps, or whatever you want.

A lot of people make that mistake. Don't use "open file", use "open disk", even if it's a disk ripped to your hard drive.

It will open the titles on the dvd instead of the vob files.
Thanks so much, LR!

I use MakeMKV for ripping DVDs/DVD files (https://www.makemkv.com). You can turn a title and its chapters into a single mkv file, but I think if there are multiple titles they would be different mkv files. For example, if you wanted to do a DVD movie with special features, the movie would be a file and the features would be separate individual files. You can also do individual chapters, specify the audio, etc. It works for Blu-Ray too.
Also appreciate your reply as well :)
