Preserving Menus

I have a question about preserving a functional DVD menu. Is it possible? I have a DVD that was authored, but unfortunately I don’t have the project pieces anymore. Does anyone know of a way that I can rip the menu from the DVD that I have so that I can create a new DVD using it? I know of software that will do this, but unfortunately it only creates a video file for it, and the menu loses its navigation abilities. If anyone has any answers, I’d be so grateful!

you need to rip, demux and remux all data.

for demuxing you might use MPEG Streamclip (freeware) or Cinematize Pro. for demuxing the main menu-overlay-streams you need to use sub-rip (PC software)

yeah and it's a huge PITA. Next time be sure to archive a copy of the DVD with the project files. Otherwise you're throwing the work away entirely.
