Easiest way to edit single frame of DVD while keeping menu intact

    I have a scratched DVD that would not play on several DVD players.
    After some cleaning and repair attempts I was able to copy the DVD to
    the hard drive for editing.

    There appears to be only one frame that is badly damaged.

    Thoughts on the easiest way to edit the frame without altering the
    DVD's menu structure?

    Thanks a bunch.

    Use a program such as Womble or Videoredo and edit that bit out and make
    a new DVD.

    In regard to "without altering the DVD'S menu structure" that's a really
    complicated process and unless you are familiar with programs like PgcEdit,
    IFOEdit, VOBrator, MenuRedo etc and similar you are probably better off just
    ripping the vob files off into a mpeg editor like Womble, doing the edit and
    exporting a new mpeg2 file that you can use to re-author a DVD with your own
    menu's and chapters. Also remember you will lose all the subtitles if that's
    important. If you do need to maintain the subs you will need to use ProjectX
    to demux the VOB files into separate video, audio and subtitle files.

    DVDReMake would be the closest thing, but it is certainly much
    easier to just author a new DVD using the video and graphics from
    the old.

    As to menu graphics, they are in the VIDEO_TS.vob and any
    VTS.#.#.0.vob you may also have. You can use PgcEdit to
    extract the menu graphics.

    Womble or VideoReDo to extract the video and PgcEdit for
    the menu graphics, then your favorite DVD authoring program
    to make the new DVD.
