    I have mactheripper and roxio, when I ripped/burned a movie, it did not include the opening scene type thing that you normally see at the start of a dvd and didnt include the different chapters. How can I do it correctly so I get chapters etc. Am i just using the wrong settings?

    MacTheRipper has a "feature-only" option which rips only the movie itself - perhaps you'd selected that option unintentionally.

    Just to be clear, are you ripping the disk under 'Full Disc Extraction' mode and not under 'feature only' mode?

    Additionally, if the DVD you're copying is on DL (dual layer) media and you don't have a DL drive, then you'll need something like DVD2oneX or Popcorn to 'shrink' the video to fit on SL media.

    DVDBackup - although I like MTR better.

    Its faster on my MDD - usually by a few minutes - and has never failed on any disc, while DVDBackup choked big time on Scarface for some reason.

    Who cares, they're both free. He asked for an alternative to MTR and I offered one.

    Edit: Also MTR doesn't require you to open DVD player first.

    Plus DVDBackup seems to be a pretty much forgotten app now, whilst MacTheRipper is still being developed.

    Thanks for the input.

    Been using DVDBackup. Because of this list, tried out MTR. Interesting.

    Again, thanks for the feedback.

    Good point!

    It seems like there are some features with MTR that DVDBackup does not have. Cool.
