There are times when I wish to learn which VOB files of an unencrypted DVD correspond to a given title.
Say, for example, I have a decrypted DVD containing 4 separate titles (four episodes of a TV series). There are 14 VOB files, but I don't know which of them correspond to each individual title.
What is the easiest way to determine this info using Windows?

It doesn't work that way. VOB files are normally created at 999 megabyte intervals by DVD authoring software with ZERO regard for episodes and their length. If an episode's file size is larger than 999MB then it will span across two VOB files.
However if you see 4 VOB files around the same size and under 999MB, it's a pretty safe bet that those 4 are your episodes.
Just play each VOB file with VLC or something similar an check them yourself.
Adding to what hech54 states, if the dvd folder has files VTS_02, VTS_3 etc then the other episodes should be contained in those vob files.
But it does depend on the authoring process since the episodes could be created as chapters of one vobset and then all will reside in VTS_01
My thanks to both hech54 and DB83 for their patient replies!
I'm quite embarrassed for asking, since I actually already knew that. Some kind of spurious brain fart must've blocked my memory!
Sorry for wasting your time...
You weren't hoping to see the actual episode name in Windows Explorer were you?
