    Ok, before half the forum tells me to do a search, I already did, and couldn't figure out what I needed to know.

    I just used Mac the Ripper to rip a DVD onto my hard drive, with a Video_TS folder, with .VOB files, since I gathered one needed these files to burn a DVD that can be played on a regular DVD player. But where do I go now? Can I use iDVD or iMovie to burn them onto a playable DVD? I couldn't figure out what was supposed to be the next step.

    I downloaded that Imager, and created a .img file with an Audio_TS folder (empty) and a Video_TS folder in it. What do I do with it now?

    So wait...

    So you're asking us how to bypass copy protection on a dvd and copy it? I don't think that's allowed to be discussed here...

    Where are the moderators when you need one?

    Unless specified otherwise, we assume that it's a legal backup of a disc that the poster owns.

    The easiest way to write out to DVD is with Toast, choose the Video tab, select "DVD-Video from VIDEO_TS", and drop the VIDEO_TS ƒ in there.

    Toast is good, but if you only want to make copies of your DVDs Popcorn is cheaper and it works really well.

    I'm making copies of DVDs that I can place in a CD case and bring with me, without having to worry about getting my original ones scratched up or stolen. :rolleyes:

    Toast 7 comes with popcorn's compression abilities and is apparently on sale. ($10 less than popcorn according to versiontracker)

    Honesty is always the best policy... and who needs a Mod to tell you to behave. You are a big boy/girl and should figure that out for yourself.

    You don't need Toast, you can burn the image with Disk Utility. From the DVD Imager page I linked to:

    Popcorn is now incluced in the new version of Toast, so just buy Toast, not Popcorn. :cool:

    Hmm, I'm hungry, is it lunch time yet?
