Setting Up Preferences
The first thing you need to do, and only do once, is
to configure Robot4rip. Double click your Robot4rip shortcut from your Start > Programs > Gordian
Knot > Robot4Rip (Or for the CD Installation, either
from your Start > Programs > DVDtoDivX
Toolbox or from your desktop folder, DVDtoDivX Toolbox,
if you created one during installation.) After Robot4rip starts, Press Tools > Preferences.
The Preferences screen will display and
the first options to setup are the Folders.
Select the drive for each folder where you want the
files to be placed.
The ISO File folder is where your ISO image of the DVD
will be copied. If you are going to create an
ISO file be sure you have read my important
note about FAT32 partitions. You will need around 8-10GB of
available hard disk space. The Full Copy Folder is where every
file on the DVD will be copied. You will need around
8-10GB of available hard disk space. The VOB Folder is where the
VOB files that contain the chosen PGC that is ripped from the DVD (or
ISO image or full copy backup) will
be stored. You will need around 5-7GB of
available hard disk space. The Project Folder is where
the indexed and demuxed video and audio files
stored. You will need around 2GB of available hard disk space.
I prefer to leave the path settings
as is and to uncheck the Replace
[space] ... box so that my final DivX movie name does not
have "_" between the words in the title.
If you want
to do either a Full Copy or an ISO Image, select the
Full Copy/ISO Image tab.
chose to install Daemon
Tools, then select Create an ISO image ... and
check the Enable box. You will also have to locate daemon.exe.
Click on the folder and navigate to where it was installed and and
double click on daemon.exe. Then select the virtual drive letter
that was created when Daemon Toos was installed.
If you want a Full Copy of the DVD and don't have Daemon Tools
installed, I found it a little tricky, perhaps a bug in their code.
The only way I have found to enable Full Copy is to check the Enable box,
then go to the Daemon Tools section of the screen. Locate any file
such as GordianKnot.exe and double click on it. Then select your
DVD drive in the drop down list.
Next is the PGC Rip screen. Check Use
DVDDecrypter and uncheck the Extract
subtitle bitmaps box.
Next is the Indexing/Demuxing
Even though it says DVD2AVI.exe, you must change the path and select DGIndex.exe instead (DGIndex is an advanced and improved version of DVD2AVI). Since Robot4Rip was made for DVD2AVI, the Auto "Force Film" function does not work, so uncheck it.
If Run hidden is checked you won't actually see a DGIndex window while DGIndex is running, but if you like to keep track of the progress you can uncheck it and you'll be able to see the DGIndex window including the progress bar.
Chapters & Finalize
The next 3 tabs, Subtitles, Chapters,
and Finalize do not
need to be modified.
Last is the Defaults screen.
If you have
chosen to create an ISO Image, then check the ISO Image box. When I rip
DVDs, I typically don't use my computer for anything else and I just
want to get my DVDs ripped fast so I select Highest in
Priority drop down menu. If you plan on using your PC
while you are ripping, then be sure to keep it at Idle.
sure to press Save to exit the Preferences screen
so you don't lose your screen configurations.
