Joining VOB files for DVD Folder

Found this at http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=132527

Creating a Playable DVD with loose VOB files
Let's say you have 3 clips, and they are named: VTS_01_1.VOB, VTS_02_1.VOB and VTS_03_1.VOB.

1. Rename these 3 files to following order:
VTS_01_001.VOB
VTS_01_002.VOB ----- NOTE Double Zeros
VTS_01_003.VOB

2. Open the first VOB file (VTS_01_001.VOB) with VobEdit, and choose the Menu: 'Edit -> Join Clips' A filedialog will apear, where you have to specify a destination directory for the final VOB file-set.

A second dialog will pop up, where you have to specify a starting VOB-ID. Usually you will enter here a '1' to let the TitleSet start with VOB-ID 1.

But if already have a TitleSet, and you want to create now a second, and later you want to append it to the first one, then you should choose a higher VOB-ID number.

But I'll explan that in detail later. So just enter here now a 1 - Joining begins now. VobEdit is now looking for the first VOB-ID in the first VOB file, and exchanges it against our First-VOB-ID that we've specified.

For every new VOB file, the VOB-ID gets increased by 1.

When this is finished, you will have a new VOB file: VTS_01_1.VOB, or if you have joined more files you will have a Title-Set from VTS_01_1.VOB - VTS_01_n.VOB.

Now just use IfoEdit to create new IFO files for this new Title-Set, and then you can burn this to DVD-R.
