    Likely protections.

    Try watching the movies using VLC Media Player, which is free/opensource.

    VLC should be installed in folder root/Applications, not in your home folder/Applications. Also, ensure you're using the same bitrate for Handbrake and VLC. This may also be part of the problem if you are booting into 64-bit mode, or if Handbrake is at one bitrate, yet your media player is at another bitrate.

    Open the disc in DVD Player first, and start playing the main feature. Make a note of the Title number that plays, then encode that Title in HandBrake. Many DVDs use that annoying out-of-sequence copy method.

    Get the Fairmount app. Open it and it will automatically mount and de-scramble the DVD you pop into your machine. Once thats done you can use Handbrake as normal, your movies won't be scrambled.
