    say a guy wanted to make a LEGAL back up a DVD that he LEGALLY bought on to a CD-R (i believe the format is supposed to be VCD) anyone have any idea how to do so? ive heard many peecee friends were able to do it, but i'd love to be able to do it too, to further prove macs can do anything peecees can, but better.

    so my question, how do i do this? what apps do i need? how can i use them?

    i dunno if it'll help, but im running a new 1.25 15" pbook with superdrive

    THANKS!

    If you have a super drive why would you not want to make a DVD copy of the movie you own.

    DVD's are about a dollar a piece, but the quality of dvd is so much better than vcd. i think it is worth it
