    Hey everyone,
    I've got a somewhat newb question, but I just can't figure it out...

    I made a video a while ago, and burned it to a DVD. I no longer have the video saved on my HDD, I only have this one copy on DVD. How do I rip the video from the DVD and save it to my HDD, and ultimately burn more copies of this DVD?

    Thanks!

    Since it's a burned disc there are no CSS/copy protection issues, just create a disk image in Disk Utility and burn the image to another disk.

    Or, if you have Toast, you can just use the Disc Copy feature.

    Alternately, if you want to rip just the video file in to an MPEG-4 or MPEG-2 file you can use Handbrake. It's alright to be a n00b :D

    DO NOT do that. Worst comes to worst, drag the VIDEO_TS folder off the dvd on to the HD, then open toast, make a DVD-ROM (UDF) with whatever name and make the VIDEO_TS the only folder.
