    Short story: I want to strip all of the unnecessary crap out of these test DVD and just have the actual "test clips", no menus etc.

    These 'test' DVD's are a real problem to customize to remove all of the unnecessary 'crap' that is not the actual test clips. Digital Video Essentials & Avia are bad enough, but at least you can wind up with a copy that plays. Not very well without the menu, but it will play. AFAIC, the menu is very annoying. I only want the actual test clips. No commentary or how to's etc. Just the meat and potatoes.

    With this HQV Benchmark, using CloneDVD2 or DVDFab the burned disc locks up the PC using three different software players.

    Looking at the end result in DVDFab, there is only one title listed that is one second long out of 12-18 titles checked. I didn't see the result in Clone DVD, but I assume it is the same.

    Anyone have a solution to these poorly authored discs? I'm assuming it has something to do with the number of separate titles and a unnecessary complicated menu, unlike a 'movie' that might have two or three choices (main movie, extras, commentary etc.)

    The 1st attachment is the original DVD title list (36),
    The 2nd attachment is the ripped folder off the HDD that I had 12 titles checked (and that show in the HDD folder)

    Why are ones and zeros so complicated? Linear Video Editing was easier. Downloading & streaming are two different things.

    The next question is, what are all of those 14KB files of the titles that weren't checked??

    Select "main movie" in DVDFab and you'll not have any menu.

    "Customize" gives you a menu and the main movie, no extras.

    But that won't allow me to uncheck any of the 36 titles. That doesn't do me any good at all!

    These are not "extras" and the menu can be checked or unchecked using Customize.

    The problem is without the 1st title which is nothing more than a introduction, the burned DVD will not work. Adding that 1st useless title worked.
