I downloaded handbrake and don't know how to use it?

When I put in the DVD, and open up handbrake, it asks me which folder the DVD is in? I've tried all on the list and none have worked, what am I doing wrong? It says this folder doesn't contain any ifo files, try another one. I am ripping a DVD I bought, not a DVD from netflics or blockbuster or anything like that, please just give me a step by step titorial on how to use handbrake. Also, I have a toshiba DVD recorder vcr combo, and I like to record my favorite TV shows, how do I rip those with handbrake?

    if you are using a mac, here's what you do: when you get into it and you open the source, it should go into finder. in finder, on the left there should be a title called devices. under that there should be the name of the movie you are using. click on it, and press done. this is what worked for me, and i am sorry if it doesn't work for you. you also need to have VLC downloaded if you don't already. watch this video to clear things up:

    I have used almost all free software, but its function is very limited. So I think you’d better buy one, and I always use Aimersoft DVD Ripper for Mac, it can rip DVD to computer, ipod, zune, psp and so on. It’s my favorite. You can free download and try it.
