    Ripped my first dvds last night using MacTheRipper. One worked and the other ripped but wouldn't play back (played but no sound/picture) due to bad sectors. MTR warned that this might be the case.

    So my first attempt only had a 50% success rate. Is it normal to find dvds that won't rip or was this just a bad start?

    The disc that failed was Waterworld region 1.

    I've never had a failure but I haven't ripped anything in about six months so maybe there's new protection schemes I haven't encountered.

    It varies as new schemes to stop theft are deployed.

    Please note that MacRumors does not condone the piracy of copyright material or the discussion of techniques for breaking copy protection.

    Discussion of technologies and the rights and wrongs of copyright law are welcome, but please keep within MR regulations.

    This is a disc I've had for a couple of years so I'm assuming that it is not the copy protection which is breaking it. Sounds as though I may have just been unlucky with this one.
