    Okay I am new to mac rumors, and I need some hlep learning how to rip and burn dvds. I've downloaded Mac the Ripper and Burn, but I am unclear on what steps I need to follow to get the job done. I've read the manuals that come with each, but they are not very direct (maybe I am a little dense). Please help. :confused:

    I don't believe threads like this are permitted on this site. Do as we say, not as we do. ;)

    Ripping & Burning Your Own DVDs For Backup Purposes Is Perfectly Legal

    There's nothing illegal about ripping & burning you rown DVDs for backup purposes. Just don't do it to rentals. I use Handbrake and Toast 8.

    If you need to rip your own dvds for editing, use DVDxDV or Handbrake. If you need to back up an image for burning, use the built-in Disk Utiltiy. That's what I use if I don't have the original footage on hand. Occasionally, ripping can produce less than perfect copies. Disk Utiltiy essentially clones the disc.

    I am also assuming that these are your own DVDs that you created yourself. Don't steal movies.

    For backups I use Fast DVD Copy. If I want to transcode to another format I use MediaFork.
