    I've been trying to rip The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian using Mac The Ripper and the warning about the dummy vob and options to choose to pad/delete appeared :mad: I read the manual about it and it said to pad it if I'm ripping full disc which I am. I read about similar problems to mine in forums but none of them seem to be able to tell me a simple way of getting rid of the warning and just ripping my DVD normally. I ripped the full disc because I wanted to get the extras too. After the first rip, I played it using the Apple DVD Player and everything was fine (the extras) BUT the movie :| It started playing from 20 mins into the movie so basically the first bit of the movie was gone but the rest was fine. PLEASE HELP! I really don't want to pay for some other DVD rippers :(

    Another option

    Use Handbrake. You'll also need to download VLC, but Handbrake is by far the best ripper for the Mac. Not only does it rip, but it also transcodes. If you have a multi-core Mac, it is multi-threaded! I get transcodes from DVD to iPhone format about 16 times real-time on my Core i7 Mac.

    MacTheRipper Doesn't Work on New Movies

    I've found that most movies after 2005 (when Geezerbutz stopped actively updating MacTheRipper) will not rip properly with MacTheRipper.

    For movies produced after 2005 use Ripit, or Handbrake as mentioned earlier. If you have access to a PC use AnyDVD. As far as ease of use and compatability, this is the order I choose when ripping movies:

    1. MacTheRipper (If Before 2005) - Free
    1. AnyDVD (If After 2005) - $100?
    2. Ripit - $20
    3. Handbrake - Free

    AnyDVD rips everything and its output files play nice with all compressors I have ever used. Ripit works on almost all movies except sometimes the output file doesn't play nice with Toast Titanium or other compressors. Handbrake (I rarely ever use this to rip) from what I have heard rips very well, but sometimes it is tricky to know which titleset to rip (especially on Disney DVDs because they throw all kinds of garbage titlesets in to throw ripping programs off). Good Luck

    I have Handbrake but for some reason it only rips region 0 DVDs. It might rip region 2 but it doesn't rip any of my region 3s. It's probably something to do with my region code setting on my Mac but I don't want to change it as you know it can only be changed 5 times. My region setting is 2. Well actually I'm not POSITIVE it doesn't work but the region 0 DVDs load much faster and I wait for the other ones to load and nothing happens for like 30 mins. And the thing is, 8/10 of my DVDs are region 3s. Plus doesn't Handbrake only rip the movie and not the extras? I also have VLC but I'm confused. Multi-core Mac? :confused: What does that mean?

    whoa, I never knew you could rip with handbrake. I have been using MTR and when that doesnt work I use Rip It, but like a previous person wrote, Rip It files dont always burn in Toast without getting those immediate errors. I will have to try ripping with handbrake and see what happens.

    Oh and the other thing is I just used Handbrake to try to rip Prince Caspian and it was smooth but when I tried to open it the iTunes window just popped up and nothing happened. I also tried QuickTime & VLC and still nothing happened. The file was m4v and I don't know if anything went wrong :S:S:S
