    I'm trying to rip my copy of 'Monster House' to itunes so that I can play it on my ipod. I've tried Handbrake, and Mactheripper and neither will work. If I use Handbrake it only rips the first few seconds of video, if I use Mactheripper it gets to the very end and says 'Bad Sector' and quits. There are no scratches on the disc. It is brand new.

    it's propperly because the DVD is encrypted or whatever it's called... It sucks that no software can do this because I have an old DVD that's getting to the end of the line because one of my friends scratched it and now it only works half the time....

    I have run into this issue before as well. In those cases I have had luck using OSeX to rip the DVD, and using DiVA to compile the video into a useable media format for my iPod, or for iSquint to work with.

    This Site has all the information how to rip the DVD for general purposes (includes links for downloads), but doesn't talk about iPod ripping. You can either figure out the correct iPod bitrate, size and compression, or just make a large AVI file and have iSquint take care of it for you.

    Yeah, the newer movies have an encryption on them that won't let current rippers rip them........ I've looked on the Mactheripper forums and MTR 3.0 will be able to rip them....

    You can go on their website and donate them money for the free program and they'll send you a link to MTR 3.0 Beta, which supposedly can bypass this encryption.
