scanning failing on all dvds

Post by Tink » Sun Jul 28, 2019 1:27 pm

Description of problem or question:
I am suddenly unable to scan any DVDs that I wish to encode. As usual I open Handbrake, select source and it gets to between 50% and 99% and then simply hangs there interminably. I am able to play the DVDs in question in VLC. Any and all help much appreciated. I am NOT tech savvy but can follow instructions :D



Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):




HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):1.2.2




Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):Windows 10




HandBrake Activity Log ***required*** (see How-to get an activity log)

Code: Select all

Since handbrake is not a disk ripper, have you tried using a ripper? MakeMKV and AnyDVD are popular on Windows, and are both much better at ripping disks than handbrake with an unsupported 3rd-party add-on.

Thank you, i had been using handbrake seamlessly to load my collection of DVDs to my laptop. No idea why it suddenly stopped being able to do this but I will look at the two you suggest, thank you again!
