    I am trying to copy a DVD to my iMac so I can upload to my iPad. I have done this with over 20 movies with no problem. I am trying to copy the movie "Piranha" onto my hard drive for my brother and it goes through the whole process, but the finished product is just the 1.5 hour making of the movie. How can I differentiate the making of the movie from the real movie? I have done it three times now with the same result. I have never run into this problem before with Handbrake.
    Any ideas??

    In the drop down make sure you chose the right track.

    Yeah, Handbrake basically scans the DVD and assumes the longest title is right one. Use the drop down to select the correct title. If you aren't sure, play the DVD and then check what title is playing.

    I have always picked Video from the drop down menu and it picks the movie for me. On this particular movie, there are quite a few more files there. How can I decifer which is the making and which is the movie?

    I think the more important issue at hand is why are you wanting to watch that movie at all? :eek:
