Update - 2nd rip worked.....

I ripped Cars 2 again, did nothing different than the first rip (just like Captain America) used HB 9.5, used LIBDVDNAV in advanced preferences, used Universal settings - rip came out clean..... I don't q...

Encode did not work - trying again

Finished rip of Cars 2 - I thought...... using HB 9.5 direct from DVD, title 15..... Tagged it, imported to iTunes - nothing but the 1st 3 seconds will play, then the picture stops but the sound continues - I quit HB before I could save the encode log. Ripping it again to see if it will work - seems...

Cars 2 "seems" to be working......

Update - seems to be working..... Sorry for the confusion....... I went back to try to rip it directly w/ HB. Went to Preferences, selected LIBDVDNAV instead of LIBDVDREAD (which for some reason is required on some MGM/James Bond DVDs), used the ALT/OPT trick to scan title 15 ONLY and HB 9.5 seems t...

Re: Cars 2 not working

Sorry Guys - I have a similar problem, my copy of Cars 2 plays title 15 when I'm playing the disc in the DVD player. But when I use Fairmount and DVD2ONE (my usual routine) most of title 15 are zero chapters w/ time used, but no data. The movie itself is 1:46:11 - title 15, but there are multiple ti...

Re: Captain America? Worked this time.....

Don't know what I did different - I did another direct rip from title #25 to obtain a log to post on this tthread and it appears to have worked this time - I didn't do anything different, but I have it now. In case anyone cares, below is my log...... well..... most of it, it was too long to post.......

Thanks! Encode is in process - I hope I get the chapters but it isn't a loss if I don't......... It "seems" to be working at this point, my problem seems be solved by ripping the titles to individual folders for each title on my desktop and THEN combining them into DTOX before my encode.

This isn't a HB question necessarily (b/c I rarely have problems w/ 9.4)....... don't flame me, the other boards haven't helped, but I often find guidance here that solves my problems...... normally the "search" here solves my problems, but I haven't found a work-around yet.......

For the record, I seem to recall my disc used title 22 so it appears Disney IS actually placing multiple versions of the disc on the market with different title tracks for the main feature..........

Toy Story 3 - Problems anyone?

Hey, I just got back from the store w/ my copy of Toy Story 3...... Problem is, disc keeps locking up on me. First, I tried just using HB, won't find a source. Next, I tried Fairmount and DETOX - proper title on the disc is title 20, DETOX went to title 72...... when I switched it to title 20, DETOX...

Re: No Valid Source Found!

I had the same problem - MGM (for some reason) uses different DRM on the James Bond titles - just un-check libdivnav and it should recognize the title. Also, you might want to try encoding straight from the disc w/ Handbrake, some "rippers" don't handle it so well. Anyway, disable libdivnav and it s...

Thanks! I'll try that next disc, Austin Powers should be ready in about an hour. However, I had to use the "DVDNAV" to get my disc 3 of Monty Python to encode. I guess it varies by disc.

Re: Monty Python, cut off chapters

Yes, I've been using VLC since I downloaded HB 9.3

I DO need to combine some 2 disc movies (LOTR/Godfather 2) so I was leaning towards DVD2one, and I already have Fairmount.

I'll try using just HB.......

Thanks for the continued advice!
