In general, there are 4 tricks that will fix any complication you might encounter with a DVD.
1. Safe-mode conversion. This (often) fixes issues for when the conversion starts and after the 5-step scan, the conversion crashes.
Enable Power User, then in the DVD tab in Global Settings, turn off “Fast mode” and enable “Standard access”. The conversions will run slower.
2. Scan engine change. This (often) fixes issues that when you tap Go and there is no 5-step, it just opens the video folder right away, and this fixes things like missing episodes on (older) TV DVDs.
Enable Power User, then in the Engines tab in Global Settings, switch the scan engine for DVDs to “Boosterpack”. Then restart DVD Catalyst to have it scan the DVD again.
3. Conversion engine change. This (often) fixes issues of partial conversions. If the conversion starts and it runs for a few minutes and then stops/crashes.
Enable Power User, then in the Engines tab in Global Settings, switch the conversion engine for DVDs to “Original”
4. If you start DVD Catalyst, and have it scan a DVD, and it shows something like this:
