I believe Handbrake still opens one title at a time. If you decrypt them first, you should see all the titles available in Handbrake.

I'm referring to the Title pulldown menu. The trailer title is listed under the main menu. Handbrake apparently ignores it when reading the dvd.

Did you decrypt your DVD in MakeMKV first, or not?

Yes, I decrypted the DVD. The only way I've been able to access that trailer is in VLC. In the Playback Menu, it's found under the DVD Menu Title.

What are in menus are not necessarily delineated in the VOBs. A menu entry can say, "play from 2:30 to 4:00 from this VOB", and the VOB collects multiple special features into one file. Do you see a larger selection with multiple chapters?

Handbrake has a minimum title length when scanning DVD structures, which you can disable in preferences. The default is 10 seconds, so it should not be a factor in scanning for a trailer.
