    So I needed to back-up some older DVD's that I have, used to code to bypass certain restrictions etc. for Handbrake. When I open it, it has the familiar multiple titles that other files have. But with this DVD, only the first and ninth title rip to a viable video file. The others finish encoding as soon as they start and no other discussions I've searched for have offered solutions to this issue for me.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated, thank you!

    It is copy-protected, and Handbrake wouldn't read it at all because of that. I coded it so Handbrake would be able to read/rip the DVD. It reads the whole disc, but will only encode parts of it and that's the problem. The copy-protection is by-passed afaik.

    I'll try MTR though, thanks.

    If you just want a digital back up use MakeMKV. You'll be left with a lossless mkv file which you can play directly via certain players like VLC or you can run that MKV through Handbrake if you want to do various things like compress and/or alter it. Handbrake can also deal with MKVs better then the physical media in my experience.
