Why Handbrake only Rips Half of DVD, and How to Solve It?

To solve this Handbrake not finish the whole DVD converting trouble, you can give the Handbrake 1.0.7 64 bit a try. Cooperating with VLC media player 64 bit, you can work through with some of encrypted DVDs (make sure your have the full copy rights of them).

However, when you using Handbrake to rip latest Disney DVDs on Mac OS, you will get an error message says: "This version of handbrake is 64 bit, VLC found but not 64 bit!" It is one of the biggest trouble for Handbrake Mac users. On one hand, though they followed the instructions as that message said, they would still get it from time to time. On the other hand, Handbrake Mac users need to get VLC 64 bit installed firstly, which is reported as buggy software sometimes.

Otherwise, you can also find a Handbrake alternative when handling with encrypted DVDs. And WinX DVD Ripper for Mac is highly recommended as Handbrake alternative.
