Ripping Q -- Total Video Converter

I've been using Total Video Converter to rip commercial DVDs into .avi files.

Suddenly, I've come across several DVDs that TVC can't seem to read and/or rip.  In some cases, TVC says there is a "Get File Info" error, and won't do the conversion.  In other cases, when I hit "Convert Now" the usual progress box pops up but the conversion stops dead at 9kb.

Is it likely that this is due to some sort of copy protection on these particular DVDs? 

Does anyone know of a way around this?
