    I own all 11 released seasons of the Simpsons on DVD. I was able to rip seasons 1-9 with no problems. However, Season 10, I am having problems with disks 2 and 4.

    When I load the source into Handbrake, it crashes. When I load into Mac the Ripper 2.66 and 3.0 r14, they both crash as well. I tried using Fairmount to make a drive of the disks, but again when I try to load into handbrake or mac the ripper, it still crashes.
    :confused:
    I am thinking the only way I am going to be able to get these episodes off of the disks is if I capture the video into FCP and export as mpeg-4 in Compressor. This is a lot of work for 11 episodes.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to any other software I could try, or a better suggestion. Of course these are Fox DVDs, so I'm sure they are using the best encryption possible. I just find it kind of odd I was able to rip all of the other seasons, and disks 1 and 3, as well as all of the family guy season DVDs I own without a problem.

    Thanks for any advice.

    That is very odd, I was able to rip episodes from that season, including episodes from discs 2 and 4 (Wild Barts Can't Be Broken and Mom and Pop Art, respectively) without any problems using Mac the Ripper.

    I think I found my problem. I turned off the auto-scan in Mac the Ripper. After that it worked.

    just finished ripping Disk 2 and 4 of season 10.

    I ripped both Disc 2 and 4 but the VIDEO_TS folders make Handbrake crash upon scanning the files.

    Anyone know what I should do? Other dvd's work fine. But Season 10 of Simpsons is a pain in the ass.

    I need help. Thanks to anyone that could help.

    Ok, those links worked out well. I re-downloaded Handbrake and the other one.

    After that I was able to rip from the video_ts folder just fine.

    Thanks for the help.

    Just real quick, VFR is no longer available in HB. For the Simpsons season 10 should I go with Slower instead of Slow or nothing?
