Hey, I recently invested in an external DVD burner, but have been having some issues in copying DVDs. First, I want to note that I am only copying DVDs that are owned by members of my family for backup and so we can all have copies, since me and my brother are both away at college...nothing but fair-use stuff going on. Anyway, I am using Mac-The-Ripper 2.6.6 to rip, and Toast 7.02 to burn. I am using an 800mhz iBook (640MB RAM, 54GB hard drive, with ~9GB free before ripping a movie), with a Lite-On DVD burner attached via USB 2.0. I always make sure to restart (OS 10.3) before I rip/burn, and don't do anything else while ripping/burning. Despite this, I keep getting glitches in the copies. They are just split-second errors, and can vary from none to several in a movie. My instinct says that I probably don't have enough open space on my hard drive once I load a full DVD on there, but I haven't had a chance to test this theory. Any advice/comments would be a great help. Thanks in advance to some, and "seriously, I'm doing this legally" in advance to others.
