Hi, I'm trying to backup a few of my DVD's using MacTheRipper/DVD Backup and Roxio Popcorn (I have an insane sister who loves destroying my stuff). The problem I have is that MacTheRipper finishes the extraction and tells me that there were some 'Bad Sectors'. When I go in the Video_TS folder the Title.vob file has been extracted (which, ironically, seems to be that FBI anti-piracy warning that you've gotta sit through whenever you watch a DVD), but the actual movie files haven't. They exist, but they're listed as being zero kb's. I read somewhere that you've got to play the DVD normally for a few seconds with DVD Player or VLC before extraction or those main .vob files won't be extracted. The problem I have is that I don't wanna change my DVD's region code just so I can do it the easy way in DVD Player. I am, therefore, using VLC (0.8.2) to play the DVD that I'm trying to copy but VLC won't play it. I've tried both the Open Disc... and Open File... methods. It seems to me that VLC is working fine for everyone else on the internet, am I missing something? I'm using a Rev. D 15" 1.67GHz PowerBook, could this be the problem? Any help would be great. Tim.
