    For the past 10 years I made around 20 dvd from vacations, wedding and others events. Recently I decided to put them on my computer in quicktime format using handbrake. Unfortunately half of them will not work. Looks like the DVD is damaged, but I don't see any scratches.
    So I tried with different softwares like mac the ripper, dvdxdvpro. But no luck, I can't extract the movie from a bad dvd.
    When I put my dvd in a dvd player, some part of my movie will skip or freeze and some will play just fine
    Just wonder if anybody knows a way to retrieve movie from a damaged dvd or maybe a part of the movie

    I spent a huge amount of time to make those dvd and even if I have the original cassette, I wish I could have them back.
    Thanks for your help

    You should try a data recovery app like Data Rescue.
