    i am new here so please be easy on me..lol
    i use clonedvd and anydvd for all my backups.it seems that i can get the subtitles to work only if i backup the whole dvd.
    if i choose just main movie and check english subtitles in clonedvd everything goes well.but when i watch the backup dvd there r no subtitles.
    i may be doing something wrong but i get this with any and all backups that i want just the movie with subs.
    last movie i backed up with this issue was letters from iwo jima.
    in clone dvd i choose clone dvd titles,check main movie,check english subs,but no subs on the backup.
    thx for any advice anyone is willing to give..

    You either need to preserve menus in Clonedvd--or select the subtitles using your dvd remote with playing the movie.

    wheeljack,
    Make your movie only backup with "Preserve Menus" checked "ON" in CloneDVD. Depending on how a DVD original is authored, most likely the sound and subtitle tracks are matrixed through the menu structure which may be why the subs don't work correctly, or by default.

    I am not 100% certain, but I believe that a while back I discovered another way that subtitles can be left out. I had the bright idea that I could increase movie quality by using only 2-channel audio and unchecking the 6-channel. I *think* this can result in no subtitles, sometimes. Could be wrong.

    No. That has nothing to do with subtitles.

    Yeah, you're right. I just remembered what that did cause, though. If you go with only 2 and not six, you can get stuck with director comments with no way to turn it off, even if you have preserved menus.

    Director comments are quite often the 2 channel soundtrack.

    Refer to questions 7 and 11 in the Frequently Asked Questions sticky at the top of the forum.
