Why is Handbrake selective about the .vob files it converts?

I’ve been backing up my DVD collection to my Windows XP SP3 laptop hard drive. I use DVD Decrypter to rip the main movie to a .vob file, then use Handbrake to convert the file to a .mp4 file.

Eight times out of ten it works without a hitch, but every once in a while Handbrake refuses certain movies. The black encode screen will open for a few seconds with no information then close, then the message “Encoding Finished” pops up in the tray.

I’ve tried to isolate the reason, but it seems pretty random. Has anyone experience this and know of a reason or fix?
