    I think Roxio and my computer don't really get along with my new external Dual Layer Burner. It keeps not finishing the burn.

    I am running OS 10.4.7 on a MBP 2.16 with a gig of ram. I'm ripping my DVD's with MacTheRipper to back them up, and then trying to burn video from a Video_TS file. My drive is a USB2 HP DVD 840. The computer has no problem recognizing the drive, i've burned a CD with Toast Titanium 6.1.1, and lightscribe with Disclabel 3.3.1.

    Any ideas on how to back up my DVD's if it won't work with Roxio?

    Thanks :)

    Use roxio toast to author the dvd, but instead of burning it from toast, go to file -> save as disk image (apple+d i believe). After that, use disk utility to burn the image from toast.

    You can always purchase Dragon Burn. It has always worked well for me!

    I just did a quick search for Dragon burn, and the site I found says it is a PPC program. Does it run well under Rosetta? I don't wanna pay $50 for somthing that might not even work.....

    And Roxio cost so much, it should work anyway!

    So if I do that, do I rename the file to .iso instead of .toast? or will finder burn a .toast file?

    Sorry for all the stooopid questions, i'm still kind of a Mac newB ;)

    Disk Utility will burn .toast as well as .iso files, so technically doesn't matter.
