Hi all I have a 2011 MBP 17" 8GB RAM 120gb SSD in the HDD position and i have placed the stock 7200rpm 500GB in the optibay. The superdrive is placed in a USB enclosure. So having not used my superdrive for the past few weeks, i thought i would use handbrake to rip one of my dvds onto my hdd - as i plan on transferring all my dvds onto my external hdd and place my dvds into storage. I connected the extn dvd drive, via x2 USB fired up handbrake - the disk is mounted when handbrake tries to rip the disk, after selecting the VIDEO TS folder, it says scanning source 1/32 and then remains like this for some time - upto an hour without progressing. I then quit handbrake, launched VLC to play the dvd and again, the disk is recognized, i ask VLC to play the dvd, it plays the copyright bit at the start and then crashes! I tried for several different DVDs - all yielding the same results! Popcorn recognises the dvd but will not allow me to rip it as it is copy protected! I tried to copy the video TS folder to my HDD, but got the following error: The Finder cant complete the operation because some data in VTS_01_0.VOB cant be read or written. (Error code -36) If anyone has any solutions i would be much obliged thanks After scouring MRoogle and google, i am wondering if anyone has any suggestions!
