Dvd To Ipad
Posted 27 October 2011 - 04:44 PM
Im trying to get some DVD's that I have converted to a format which I can transfer to my iPad. So far I have tried Handbrake which I expected to do it no worries but it only seems to convert the first chapter and doesnt give any options to select individual chapters. I also tried a DVD ripping program (MDRP from memory) but it just copied the disc to my mac.
Can anyone recommend some software that will easily convert those DVDs to .mp4

It does sound like user error (sorry)

I wish I had an iPad to watch them on, anyway just a question thou, why are you trying to record individual chapters with movies or do you mean titles?

It may be a problem when you set the source.
Under the 'Source' heading in the main window 'Chapters' is an option from one of the drop down menus. It is possible to set Handbrake to rip set chapters, and maybe get stuck on only the first one.

so should i try a fresh download of handbrake or a reinstall or some other arcane trick? I cant see any reason why it wont work

Actually, do you have VLC installed?
The reason I ask is that a few versions ago, Handbrake stopped including the part of the program that enabled it to bypass anti-copying techniques on DVDs. Handbrake uses the file that still comes with VLC to do this.

I will have a closer look soon, just a bit busy at present.....
Jonathan, hang in there mate, we will find and answer, there are some really clever people here, no it's not user error as I suggested before....

It's not as though I'm trying to do anything dodgy. I own the DVD and just want to be able to watch it on my iPad.
It's all a mystery

Have you tried cleaning the DVD?
mate, I've tried everything i can think of. The original disc, a disc image of the disc, the MTR version of the disc. I can only presume that it has some heavy duty copy protection built in that needs some trick software to get around and I dont know what that may be. Its nothing to do with Handbrake, or my settings, its nothing to do with VLC or MTR, its just something in that particular DVD
