    I tried to rip a backup of a movie I recently bought (Semi-Pro), and for some reason MTR could not finish without the disk stopping. It just kept spinning, then stopping and trying again for a long while. So I figured I would just use handbrake and copy a MP4 to my computer, so I wouldn't have to use the disk every time I wanted to watch the movie. However, when the encoding process starts, It goes for about 30 sec. and says that the movie is complete. When I click on the MP4 it plays about 10 sec. of the intro and thats all there is. What is going on? MTR, and handbrake seem to work fine for me on other movies. Is it because it is a newer movie, and they added something that these programs can't handle? I noticed the first time I tried to rip it with MTR it popped up a message saying that there were "intentional dummy Video TS files", but now it doesn't even do that it just freezes. Any suggestions?:confused:

    I guess the first question to ask is what version of Mac The Ripper are you using? If it is the freeware version 2.66 that one is very old and not able to deal successfully with modern protection schemes.

    The current (and only supported) version of MTR is 3.0 r14m which handles MANY more movies. To get it, go to www.ripdifferent.com and join the Mac The Ripper forums. Then read the sticky notes as to the correct method to send a "gift" to the developer to obtain the current and future versions.

    Are you using Tiger? I had problems with Ratatouille but the latest (Leopard only) version of Handbrake made everything work.
