    Hi all,
    I bought Blades of Glory on DVD a few days ago and was looking forward to ripping it for my apple tv. The video I made via handbrake was problematic - several chapters were skipped entirely and the movie literally jumped around randomly. I tried to use mactheripper first, and it actually gets stuck while ripping, spinning up and down the disk before finally freezing. I had a problem with a messed up superdrive in my new MBP, but it was replaced and I still see the same issue.

    I noticed on the back of the dvd box, it says "this disk is copy protected". Has anyone had any luck ripping this movie? Have any other movies exhibited this behavior? I had problems with Memoirs of a Geisha as well.... Any advice on other programs would be appreciated!

    I experienced the same problem with Blades of Glory. Using both Handbrake and Mac The Ripper. Note that I have never had an issue w/ my disc drives.

    I've had problems with quite a few dvds in my collection.

    I've been noticing a lot of issues lately with ripping movies. Stupid copyright protection!!!!

    I don't know if this is copy protection or not, but my favorite all time movie, Blade Runner, refuses to be seen on my MBP. I have a few others like this as well. Is anyone else seeing this?
