I am continuing to search through existing articles and forum threads for an answer, but so far havent quite found this issue discussed.
basically I have ripped several hundred BD and DVD's to iso images on my media server (NAS)
What I would like ot be able to do, is keep all the menus and the main content at the current level of quality, while removing excess audio and subtitle tracks. Also get rid of those annoying FBI ads, and the Multinational warnings from Interpol all while leaving the basic content intact.
I thought this could be done without converting to a different format, but Im too new to the editing portion of this.
I use AnyDVD HD to rip them to the server but beyond that Ive never tried altering the content.
As I said Im still searching existing articles on the site. But would appreciate any help for a NooB that you could give.

Maybe Clown_BD BD Copier for blu-rays. But it hasn't been updated for a long time now...and I don't don't know if it works with isos and it looks you have to burn directly.
For dvd iso can you try the old dvd shrink, open the iso, remove extras,subtitles tracks and copy the video track, output as a new iso.
But I haven't ripped anything for a long time now...so there might be something newer that I have missed.
Well that gives me something to try It will take a very long time to complete this project as As I said, hundreds of BD and DVD's Hopefully I can find a way to batch the jobs.
DVD-based ISOs you could just use DVDShrink in Reauthor mode and just drag the main movie (deciding which streams to keep) into the final DVD. Can do so without actually transcoding, so won't lose quality.
For BD-based ISOs, I would use BDRebuilder. If it can't work with ISOs, just Mount the ISO (Daemon Tools, etc) and work with it as if it were an actual disc.
Batch? Forget it! Too many variables between discs...
Yeah I figured batch would be a pipe dream, but some day the tools will come
Clown BD BD Copier can do most of what you're asking, as mentioned.
BDRB can remove unwanted audio/sub tracks. If you add "ENABLE_TEST=1" (without the quotes) to the config file, you can also remove extras from a full disc re-encode. There is also a queue option. I've used that to do several over night, usually to encode to MKV.Pull! Bang! Darn!
