How to Rip and Backup Lionsgate DVD Movies KNIVES OUT, MIDWAY etc to MP4 AVI MKV for Watching on iPhone/iPad/TVs/PC/Mac?

Knives Out is a Lionsgate movie in 2019 and the DVD version is released just about two months ago, and it costs $14.99 to own the DVD for lifetime! It was rated 7.9 out of 10 by about 300,000 people. Definitely worth watching. However, do you think you can actually have the Lionsgate DVD for lifetime? For DVD fans that have a large collection of DVDs, I don’t think this is easy as DVDs easily get scratches, most likely by kids. I’d always like to rip and backup my DVDs movies like Knives Out, John Wick from Lionsgate to MP4 or MKV on either my PC or Mac so as to keep the DVDs for LIFETIME.

If you are having trouble ripping Lionsgate DVDs, like Knives Out, Midway at the very moment with MakeMKV or Handbrake and getting various errors in ripping, check the guide below and have a free trial first to see if this is the very ripping solution for Lionsgate movies!

Problem Ripping Lionsgate DVDs

The Lionsgate movie and TV show titles appear to be among the most heavily encrypted by the distributor. I tried different DVD ripping solutions to rip Lionsgate DVD movies and I got a lot of problems, some listed below.

Long story short, I did not get a full copy of the DVD “Knives Out” which is a Lionsgate movie when I was trying to get it copies to my hard drive with Handbrake. When I was trying to copy the Lionsgate movie, it picked track 52 and when run, I only got the copyright laws part. I try to play a movie on the software to find a beginning track and it immediately crashes and closes the app.

For ANGEL HAS FALLEN and MIDWAY,  “DVDShrink encountered an error and cannot continue.  Failed to seek.”  VLC Player could not open it.  DVD Decrypter failed to reserve track 1.  “Invalid Field in CDB 530000000000 002F143B.” “I/O error – Invalid navigation structure.”

JOHN WICK:CHAPTER 3-PARABELLUM, LONG SHOT and HELLOBOY was processed completely but wouldn’t play on either my computer or on my Sony DVD player.

JUDY: beginning with chapter 3, it contains freezes and forward-jumps in every chapter.

I realize how difficult it must be to update the decryption software for each new encryption change, but that represents progress and a source of pride, and Leawo DVD Ripper does the job of ripping Lionsgate DVDs perfectly! Here I will show you my experience about how to rip Lionsgate movies with perfect copies.

It takes seconds for Leawo to load and display the below title and preview window for you. For Lionsgate movies like KNIVES OUT and MIDWAY, I’d like to recommend you go for Main Mode. For TV series, like FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, POWER, and Beachbody DVD like CIZE, I recommend Custom Mode.

Right Title for Lionsgate DVDs Ripping[Optional]

You don’t always have to go for the below guide on how to detect the right title and then rip Lionsgate DVDs. Generally, Leawo can do this for you automatically. In most cases, the title is right to go.

If you want to do it yourself, you can preview the DVD in the preview window to confirm if it is the right one to rip, or you can use the VLC player to detect the right title. And, I’d always like to recommend VLC to do so as it is the most powerful media player in the world and it is free to go!
