    Hey, I was wondering what are good programs to use to rip individual episodes off of DVD, and have them in a mpg, avi, etc format?

    I am using handbreak, but I am running into trouble with LOST season 6.

    I was just wondering if there are any better ones?

    Btw, the application is called Handbrake, not handbreak, as it pulls the handbrake on your CPU, but it doesn't break your hand.

    I know those programs, but I am saying individual episodes. So you know how most dvd's in tv season boxes have 9 different episodes. I want 9 different files

    You know how to select different episodes in Handbrake then?

    What exact problems are you experiencing then?

    There are multiple of the same length in episode, and I am finding this to be a problem since I already did the conversion and I did not get the full episode.

    Does that mean, you select the appropriate title in Handbrake, applied whatever settings you used and hit the START button, but the transcoding process aborted or the file was incomplete? Have you ripped the DVD before or are you using the video DVD as direct source for Handbrake?

    Have you got the latest versions of Handbrake and VLC (if you use the video DVD directly)?

    No No, I have used it before with a scrubs dvd and it worked perfectly

    My problem is that there are 90 titles that are about 46 minutes long

    What about the second part of my previous post? Have you ripped the DVD before (thus removing the CSS or any other copy protection scheme) before using Handbrake, or are you using Handbrake with the actual video DVD?

    Maybe the descrambler library included with VLC (the version you use), does not work with the CSS used on the Lost DVD (Sony?).

    Maybe you try one of the ripping applications out there (four are linked to above) and see, if that helps.

    You may want to try using ripit to rip the DVD, then use Handbrake to separate them into seasons. Ripit gives you 10 free rips (but is WELL worth the $20!).

    I already have rip it, since I got it in the MacHeist deal pack.
