I’ve been in the process of ripping my DVDs onto my computer for quick access. In the process I found that for some DVDs Handbrake didn’t find or detect the disk’s main feature so I was unable to rip the DVD. Initially I thought this was just because of the way the DVDs were encoded but I found an easy workaround.
When you initially load the disk into Handbrake you usually choose the â€œDetected Volumeâ€? option to scan the contents of the DVD disk. However, to correct this problem we’ll use the â€œDVD Folder/Imageâ€? option and browse to the VIDEO_TS folder on the DVD and select it instead. Now Handbrake will find the main feature and detect it properly and you’re on your merry way!
