    If your goal is to burn the ripped DVD back to a DVD you can play in a standalone player, you're using the wrong tool. Please explain what you are trying to do.

    i am new at this so i hope that i am correct

    dvd to dvd:
    MacTheRipper --> Toast/Popcorn (maybe Burn?)

    dvd to numerous non-dvd format including iPod and Quicktime compatible:
    Handbrake (some prefer to us MacTheRipper first)

    Handbrake alone will do the first part in and of itself, without any additional stuff, as long as you're OK with the MPEG-4/H.264 formats it'll rip to. You can then burn this data file to a data disc and view it on any computer that can play the generated files.

    Giving a copy to a friend, however, is most likely illegal in most places around the world, so just be aware of that.

    if your DVD is D-5 (means the DVD data size is around 4.5GB)
    then
    1. simplyburns rip DVD into a 4.5GB *.iso. you can then use simplyburns to burn this *.iso to a blank DVD
    2. mactheripper rip DVD into a Movie folder, you can watch this through any dvd player, also you can burn it to DVD using DVD remaster. or use DVD imager to make movie folder into a *.iso, then burn as described in "1"

    if you DVD is D-9, which has z size larger than 4.7GB
    1. mactheripper rip DVD into a movie folder, then use DVD remaster or FFmpegx to compress the folder into a 4.5Gb .iso then burn.
    2. buy a DVD-9 blank disk, burn it, remember DVD-9 disk is much more expensive than DVD-5 disk.
