    You cannot take a screen capture when a DVD is in your computer with standard Apple software. However you could try Snapz Pro X. You can get it here:

    Another (non-hardware) option is to try VLC; it can play most DVDs, and does allow screen captures. I've used it successfully in the past for this, although there are some discs it doesn't do well with. It's other drawback is that it's very difficult to get it to capture the exact frame you want--no single frame step forward/backward is included.
