    I've ripped my personal DVD of The Eagles, Hell Freezes Over concert with DTS 5.1 audio and 2 channel LPCM, using DVD Shrink.

    I want to trim the film itself by the first 10-15 minutes. You can only trim in Shrink using re-author, which (according to the on screen message) disables the menu functions. My problem is that when the disc first starts, you are presented with a menu to choose either DTS or 2 channel PCM. You cannot switch the audio tracks at any other time. I need to preserve this menu capability. Also, even if you choose DTS, once the disc starts playing, if you skip past the "flying and exploding gold disc" DTS logo, the audio reverts back to 2 channel PCM. So, can someone tell this novice, the simplest way to trim a few minutes of the beginning of the film and preserve the menu function of audio selection? Thanks!!!!!!!

    Maybe with vobblanker. I will see if I find some guide.

    Check: http://download.videohelp.com/jsoto/guides/VobBlanker/prevcut/index.php

    I haven't tried it so I have no idea how complex it is.

    You must extract the video_ts folder from the iso.

    I think I need to download another program just to do that, LOL. I knew this would get complicated.

    Haha. I'm just reeling from another long battle to simply get a video file transferred successfully to play on my blu ray player. I'll try the zip program. What if I put the ISO on USB stick? Would the program see the contents of the ISO? Thanks again!!!! I seriously appreciate everything
