    I am looking to make some personal backups of my DVD video library (because I am that anal about keeping everything perfect). Is there anything out there for OS X that does the job in basically one click? Keep in mind I would like to copy to another DVD. Compression is most likely a must since I'm not using dual-layer.

    Thanks!

    Would something like Toast 8 work for you? I have not used it for DVDs, but i have used it to make copies of my CDs. Works with one click. Roxio Also has a program called Popcorn2 that might work better now that i look at it...

    There is not a single app that can back up DVDs.

    You will need to download Mac The Ripper and either DVD2oneX or Toast. These are simple programs. If you have any questions post them up or shot me a PM.

    no way. Toast 8 will copy DVDs in one click... if you're willing to pay for it.

    I am almost positive that you need Mac The Ripper to rip the DVD. Almost positive.

    As long as your DVD collection is composed of retail DVD's, you will need to strip the encryption for your backups.

    Therefore you will need MTR.

    So no, there is no single app that will strip the encryption and then compress and burn it with one click. :(

    If you install FairMount (which automatically mounts the DVD and decodes it on the fly), Toast 7 (and probably 8 too) will work as a "one step" recompress and burn tool for you. You won't need MTR.

    As an alternative to Toast, I understand that DVD2OneX additionally offers a batch tool. In my opinion DVD2OneX provides very slightly better quality and is a lot faster than Toast - though it is more expensive.

    (You pay your money and take your choice :)

    I hope that his helps you.
    Greetings.
