    Mac The Ripper is by far the best

    Its the only one I know exists.

    If you want to Rip to a Video file (.mp4 or .mov or something) Transmission is for you.

    MacTheRipper to get the DVD onto your harddrive, and Handbrake to compress it to a more respecatable size.

    Shouldn't someone sticky the answer to this question as it gets asked time and time again? :confused:

    SimplyBurns...

    Pop a DVD in. Click Copy. Pop in the blank. Done. Great for making back-ups.

    freeware for burning


    Is there freeware for putting/burning it on a single layer DVD+R after using MTR?

    I've heard of Nero's toast and others that cost $$, but not sure about freeware. I guess I could always get bootcamp and use windows - there are a plethora of programs out there for windows. thanks for any advice.

    Macs are lousy DVD rippers if your DVDs are from more than 1 region.

    I prefer using 0SEx to rip DVDs. I like how it rips the DVDs to a single .vob file and not in 1gb segments. Lot easier to encode a single file then multiple.

    I also second mac the ripper. To convert files from dvd vob format to like avi or mp4 I use VisualHub. It's much faster than handbrake IMO. For burning I use dragon burn, a simple burn program called Burn (freeware you can find it on versiontracker) or Toast.

    I use MTR followed by Toast. Works like a charm!

    I downloaded handbrake and tried it for the first time the other day, and it worked flawlessly.

    I don't think so, but again SimplyBurns does the trick. If you have a DVD you want to back up it couldn't be easier. If you want to convert formats, compress, etc. then you need a different tool, but for backing up DVDs I think SimplyBurns is the way to go.
