    What application do I use to Copy a DVD onto my Hard Drive so I can watch it with out the DVD, I did have such an application and one that would allow you to burn it onto another DVD, but since my Hard Drive died I don't know what it is... And I have tried to just simply copy to the hard drive so please don't suggest :eek: :D :p

    Does Disk Utility no longer work for this? (To avoid the hassle of a download) I know you need Handbrake for shrinking to DVD-R size, but for just getting a DVD onto your computer, will Disk Utility be enough?

    Not for most commercial DVDs, as they typically have copy-protection. HandBrake or MacTheRipper can get around this.

    I prefer MacTheRipper. Though HandBrake is great too.

    Well, they serve different purposes. MTR is for doing a direct copy onto your hard drive, whereas HandBrake is for making a compressed copy of a movie.

    Exactly - they each have their place, and in some instances, complement each other quite nicely too, depending what copy protection schemes you might be dealing with.
