  2. You could try renaming the DVDs (?) so the VOB numbers are sequential.

    Open My Computer and look at your DVD drive normally Drive D and see what the name for the disk 1 is and then try disk 2. The published name is not necessarily the "disk" name

  6. Rip the 2 DVDs to 2 mkv with makemkv (without recoding), g.e. fellowship1.mkv and fellowship2.mkv and join this two files with clever Ffmpeg-GUI.
    No recode, no quality loss.

  9. I downloaded the program but it asks me to download more programs before I can use it. Am I doing something wrong?

    If you mean clever FFmpeg-GUI, there is nothing to install. It's a portable application. Just start it.
