DCeric's How to... Make Video Files for PSP From DVD Rips



On this episode I show you how to make video files for PSP from DVD rips.  This by far the best way to make video files for PSP and has a success rate of 100% for me at least.  I have tried other software for ripping DVD's and converting them is where all the problems begin.  But Make MKV gives you a perfect DVD rip each time in MKV format.  From there we can convert the MKV into a MP4 that works with your PSP.

Software Needed:

Make MKV: http://www.makemkv.com/ (DVD and Blu-Ray Ripper)

Format Factory: http://www.pcfreetime.com/ (Video Converter)

DCerics How to... Make ISOs and CDI files for Dreamcast





Today I show you how to make ISOs for the SD Adapter and CDI files for CD-R's for the Sega Dreamcast.  Now mind you this was done pretty late but this should show you how to make perfect images.

As mentioned in the video some games, emulators, apps may need data folders or other files so read the read me for each game.

Also when downloading remember that you need plain files not CDI or other image files cause were making CDI files.


When burning you want to open the image with Discjuggler or burn image as with IMGBurn. Discjuggler or other software may ask to change the structure of the CD do not do that or you will get a bad burn that won't work in your Dreamcast.

Software needed:

ISO Make Pack v.23 -  http://www.dc-swat.ru/page/dreamshell/

Virtualbox - https://www.virtualbox.org/ (w.Windows XP)

Checker_204 - http://dchelp.dcemulation.org/downloads/ (for Windows XP)

Boot Dreams 1.0.6c - http://www.sega-dc.de/dreamcast/BootDreams (GERMAN)
