    Ok, so i'm a bit new to all this.. know vaguely what i'm doing, but i'm sure you all know better.

    I have a DVD, and I want to make a copy of it - for my use - nothing illegal! I just want another copy of it.

    I have bought this programme DVD20NE, and so far, what I have done is :

    Used mac the ripper to rip the DVD, and dvd2one to compress it.

    Then what do I do? I have toast.. but I was wondering what to do with the new files, to ensure i can watch on a dvd player. Is it best to use this image thing?? If so.. how do I do that?

    Thanks guys :)

    If it's a straight single layer DVD (~4.7 GB) and you have a single layer DVD burner then Toast's DVD copy should do the trick... or if it's a dual layer disc (~9.5 GB) and you have a dl burner...

    The problem occurs if you try to copy a dl disc onto a single...

    So, a bit more info on the disc and your burner would be nice... ;)

    burning it in Toast, make sure it's a "UDF DVD-ROM" and make sure VIDEO/AUDIO_TS are both in the root folder.

    other than that, it's pretty much how compatible your dvd-/+r's work in the stand alone players.

    In Toast 5:
    Click on the Other tab>DVD
    Click New DVD
    Name the new dvd: The name of the original dvd
    drag your Video_TS folder onto the DVD
    Click on Burn

    You may want test your DVD before you burn it to not waste any disk:
    Open up DVD Player
    File> Open Video_TS folder

    In Toast 6 you want to select Video>DVD Video
