I get an error message that doesn't make sense to me: Sometimes it says that the file type is incompatible with Videowrap, but other times it works fine. For Example:
When I convert VTS_01_1.VOB, it works perfectly. But when I try to convert VTS_01_2.VOB, it will not work.

WHY??????
Thanks, everyone!

Without looking at the file myself its hard to say, but I would take a guess that VTS_01_1.VOB is the menu of the movie which has stereo sound, and VTS_01_2.VOB has 5.1 surround sound.

5.1 sound isn't supported by VideoWrap, so I would try to check to see if that was the case.

Thank you for the help. However, I don't think that's the problem. I was able to encode some of the files using Handbrake, so they are all the same file types/specs. But even in Handbrake, I keep getting audio dropouts. Any suggestions? Maybe there's another software that can help me?

Sorry, I've never used Handbrake so can't really help you there. Although the software does seem to convert from DVD to MPEG-4, if you're then converting it again thats going to loose quite a bit of quality, if you do need to rip from DVD you might want to consider another higher quality format before converting to iPod (or whatever you wish VideoWrap to do). Consequently I can't endorse anything since ripping from a copyrighted DVD is actually illegal.
