I am pretty new to all this and have been trying to make my own way so far but I have come up to a point where I need to ask a few questions. I want to convert my DVDs into AppleTV/iTunes format (I still don't know if this is the best format). So I was tolds to get Popcorn 3, which I did. To my surprise whe I tried to rip my first DVD (Firefly) a message saying the DVD is encrypted and that they can't do this. So then I downloaded MacTheRipper and Handbrake. The first try with MTR was unsuccesful as at the end I received an error message saying there were bad sector and Handbrake would not recognise the format. Took me a while until I tried the ARccOS extraction option and now they are ripped and with Handbrake I can convert them into Apple TV format. Questions: 1) Shouldn't MTR automatically detect that it has to use the ARccOS conversion method? The manuel says it does. Maybe these DVDs are encrypted with something different and I need a different ripper. 1) All episodes are ripped but how do I import them to AppleTV and keep them organised into seasons and episodes? 2) If I try to convert with Popcorn3 it crashes? Anybody knows why? 3) Handbrake detects more titles than it offers to convert. Is this an issue? 4) Is AppleTV the best format? I will typically watch on my TV but what if want to watch on my MacBook Pro or iPod? Any help will be appreciated!
