Common errors you may confront when ripping DVDs
While ripping your DVDs you may face some errors, below I list some common DVD rip/copy errors with the solutions.
- No Valid Source Found
When you face this error initially try to clean your disc with soft duster cloth. Also, you can use another computer to digitize your DVD movies or TV episodes. If again the error exists change a DVD drive or adjust DVD drive settings or the best way is to restore to a more reliable DVD ripper like MacX DVD Ripper Pro.
2. Damaged DVD
Check on your disk to see if it’s physically damaged or scratched, fix scratched DVD.
3. DVD ripper hangs/crashes/stops
If you’re using DVDFab to rip DVD Hotel Transylvania 3 and Goodbye Christopher Robin to ISO image, please disable path player at the settings to see if the DVD ripper hangs error solved. Always upgrade your DVD backup software to the latest version.
If the DVD ripper crashes at half way while ripping DVD, check if your graphics card has the latest drive update.
4. Won’t rip entire movie error
When the tool can’t rip all episodes or all main episodes show up as one title. In this case one type of TV series DVD only contains one long title, which needs you to manually cut the long title into several titles with shorter duration. And keep in mind that each episode should start with 0:00 time display. Then begin to rip episodes from DVD.
5. Cannot find correct title/playlist
When you face this error, store your current DVD ripping program away and use the powerful MacX DVD Ripper Pro to rip Disney DVD, Lionsgate DVD movies and workout DVD.
6. No audio, mixed up, or out of sync after conversion
1). Make sure that your DVD player software has hardware acceleration enabled.
2). Give up backing up some old DVD discs (e.g., DVDs released in 1990s) since they might be in letterbox format and don’t correct for the dropped frames.
3). Use VLC media player to solve audio out of sync problem during playback.
4). Buy a professional Digital Audio Delay device if you have enough budget. It’s a little bit expensive, around $200 – $300.
5). Re-rip your DVD with a better DVD ripper and adjust output video frame rate to 29.97FPS for NTSC DVD or 25FPS for PAL DVD before ripping disc.
If you still failed to rip DVD, read the step by steps guides to find solution for all errors.
