Unhappy Help Identifying Titles When Converting Video

I have been using DVD Shrink and iriverter to transfer episodes from The Office onto my player. With other shows on dvd, like Frasier, the 6 episodes appear quite obviously on the list when you do the reauthoring on dvd shrink. It'll show title 1, title 2, etc and the running time for each (around 23 minutes). With The Office, there are so many extras and some of the episodes appear on the reauthoring list two or three times because there are different commentary tracks, so it's frustrating when I think I've identified an episode then go to watch it on my player and it turns out it's one with a commentary track. Has anyone else encountered this and come up with a solution? I know one solution would be to just transfer every title to the zen, but that would be so time-consuming.

Aren't you able to play each one to verify that you have the correct one you want before ripping/converting or even before copying to the ZVM?

Maybe that could be done. Is there a program that will play ISO files? THat's the format it is in before being converted to AVI.

Not sure. I usually rip mine to VOB files using DVDFab HD Decrypter. It has the option to rip the entire DVD or just the main movie portions, as well as preview the videos.

You could also just watch the videos you have made before copying them to the ZVM. That way you know what is what and only copy over the video files you really want to play back on the ZVM.
