Error ‘OS error – This device does not exist’ occurred while reading ‘/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB’ at offset ‘0’

I just got my external DVD player yesterday and I am planning to rip my DVD collections into digital form. This is my first time ripping a DVD disc, also my first time using MakeMKV.

Issue

MakeMKV can read the disc, but after a few seconds the ripping process started, the drive disconnected with errors like

Error 'OS error - This device does not exist' occurred while reading '/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_1.VOB' at offset '0'

Solution

Turned out my DVD player didn’t get enough power to spin the disc, so it disconnect itself. Thanks to this forum post which helped me identifying the problem.

I was using the DVD player on USB hub. So I pulled it out and put it into USB port at the back of my PC. Now problem is solved.
