I was recently trying a DVD ripping software in hopes to rip and backup our drama movies in Blu-ray or DVDs that wear out due to our children watching them repeatedly. Recently, I started with our most recent purchase: First Cow, Bad Education, and Weathering with You, and I am trying to rip those drama movies to either MP4, AVI, or MKV file to play digitally. However, I had trouble.
Problem ripping Drama Blu-ray and DVD Movies
After converting First Cow, Bad Education, and Weathering with You, which are all drama movies, we began watching them and started out with no problems. At the title page, firstly, it was Spanish and I need English, and then it just repeated the title over and over and over and never played any further. It was my understanding that the program would convert Disney movies as well as other protected films, which is what 95% of my movies are. I also tried Google for help and notice that there seems to be some kind of new copy protection in the newly released drama movies and some other Blu-ray or DVD Rippers fail to rip them as well. Some reported that the source data is corrupted and there are read errors and some reported that the ripping of drama Blu-ray and DVD movies like First Cow, Bad Education, and Weathering with You, etc to MP4 or MKV stops at 21% or 31% of the whole movie.
Are you able to rip your newly released drama movies?
