We have a DVD that not only has closed captions and subtitles, but also has an American Sign Language interpreter option in the menu. We have used the DVD a few times and getting concerned that we don't have a backup. either does the people who made it. I can burn the DVD to a file using Handbrake, and easily included captions and subtitles, but I can't figure out how to include the ASL interpreter in the backiup. The DVD menu has the options for language, subtitles, and interpreter. All can be on at the same time or only as selected. The copy will obvioiusly not have options, so the interpreter will always be visible in the copy, as would the subtitles. Anyone know how to do this?

Use ImgBurn to make an image of it. Then if you ever need it again, use ImgBurn to burn that image to a new DVD. Free, fast, simple.

The Official ImgBurn Website

If you have the captions as an SRT file then just burn it with the SRT file using something like convertx(can be found on pirate bay). The subtitles will be there but you can turn them off(on your dvd)

The captions/subtitles are not a problem. I want the interpreter too.

I'd check the disk (with Make MKV or Handbrake) for multiple tracks. It may be that the sign language option is just a different copy of the video file with the sign language interpreter included on the video.

How do I check with Handbrake? I don't have Make MKV but I will look for it.

It's been a while since I used Handbrake, but when you scan the disk it should produce a track list, file list.

I know that MakeMKV produces a list of titles on the disk, with sizes and length.

You dont want anything other than ImgBurn. Save yourself some headaches, try it first. All other solutions that require you to configure this or that or the other thing just complicate and make it more error prone. ImgBurn is designed to do *exactly* what you are trying to do.
