"Just got the DVD of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. For the sake of backup and playback on my iPhone, I ripped it...but it failed. My ripper kept ripping the title over and over and over for the full duration of the movie. And it turned out to be 2 hours and 17 minutes of title credits in English and Spanish over and over. When I opened the output file, I could only see the scrolling Star Wars intro over and over in various languages. All the theme opening in Spanish. Any one has the same issue. How to fix it?"
