Failed to rip some DVDs such as new movies? The article will help you fix such DVD rip and copy errors.

"I set about getting my DVD collection to my NAS box. I've ripped nearly 400 DVDs flawlessly to my NAS from my laptop. But recently I started getting an error when trying to rip some new movie DVDs."

When dealing with commercial discs, most DVD rippers will go wrong. There often crop up failure of main title conversion, crash, disc loading errors, and incomplete movie encoding (for example, HandBrake rips only half of a DVD or even only the first 30 seconds). Why some DVDs cannot be ripped? How to fix these DVD rip errors? Follow us to figure out them.

Part 1. Why Some DVDs Are Hard to Decrypt and Rip?

Techie users would understand that different types of discs may apply different encryption mechanisms. Generally speaking, most powerful DVD copy programs in the market can deal with simple and direct region code encryptions inclusive of CSS and RCE. However, even a good enough software can't vouch for 100% conquest of all types of DVDs. So, You may face different DVD rip errors under different circumstances.

1. Cannot Transcode New DVDs with HandBrake

- I used HandBrake to rip my DVDs. But since version 0.9.2, it was no longer able to deal with new copy-protected DVDs, although might have some luck in slight number of CSS types.

Old Solution: Download and install libdvdcss.pkg (for Mac) / libdvdcss.dll (for Windows) to use in collaboration with HandBrake can help remove some types of encryptions.

But libdvdcss was removed from HandBrake DVD ripper since version 0.9.2. Users have to download it from third-party websites. Here are the download links for Windows OS.

Even installing libdvdcss, however, HandBrake cannot deal with Blu-rays, as well as some DVDs with complex encryption algorithm. In addition to that, HandBrake is slow in scanning DVD titles, decoding and decrypting, although the encoding process is fast.

New Solution: Turn to a DVD ripper that is built in with DVD decrypter to rip any encrypted DVD without errors. No other plug-in is needed.

2. Cannot Rip 99-Title DVDs

99 title protections are widely used in Japan AV DVDs, America's workout DVDs, for example, Beach Boy's Insanity and P90X3 DVDs, a bit of Disney DVDs.

If the conversion software you're using fails to choose the correct main title, skips parts of the movies, gets stuck or crashes in a loop, or if the output file shows in a gigantically 40GB file size, gets scrambled in wrong order or audio/video tracks, you extremely likely have met with DVDs that have 99 titles.

3. Cannot Rip Disney Movie DVDs

Among all types of DVDs, Disney movie DVD is the most knotty one. It always comes with DRM, newest generation DVD copy protection, Disney's Fake, etc. Most DVD rippers are not powerful enough to bypass the barrier. By removing Disney protections, you can watch Disney DVD movies.

4. Cannot Rip DVD on macOS Catalina

The latest macOS 10.15 focuses more on security, asking for app permission prior to accessing to users' personal data. This also leads to many software malfunctional. For example, DVD rippers fail to read DVD movie infomation and even crash on Catalina if improper process is performed. But the Mac version of WinX DVD Ripper timely updates to support Catalina and makes DVD ripping an easy task, as long as your allow to access files to a removable volume prior to the DVD ripping process.

These are the hardest ones with something in common. It is not the encryption technique causes the difficulty, but the special format embedded in. The good news is that WinX DVD Ripper Platinum comes cover the support of all DVDs above and fix all DVD rip errors at a short time when it becomes a truly unique DVD conqueror.
