I have tried using DVD43 with the same results that follow. I've since uninstalled it and am now trying the trial version of AnyDVD to remove encryption. Then I start Handbrake for Windows, select the disk in the appropriate drive, click Read DVD and wait. . . and wait. . .
Nothing happens. If I click OK to continue, I get the Select Title and View DVD Information screen, but no info - just
on the View DVD Information screen.Missing output file name. Run /cygdrive/c/Program Files/Handbrake/hbcli --help for syntax.
The DVD in question is Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, and this is the first time I'm using Handbrake.

Sorry to be dense, but is AnyDVD doing what needs to be done so Handbrake will work? i.e., fix the CSS protection, etc.?
Do I just need to wait a very long time for the disk to be read? I'm not hearing anything going on with the disk drive, and getting no progress bar in the task bar (with DVD43) or anything else.
Thanks for any help.
