    Alright, it's been ages since I did this, but I have a reason to do this now.
    Can someone give me the current best and cheapest way to do this.


    Thanks,
    I'd prefer to avoid MTR and Toast

    Handbrake can't do a dvd backup, it only converts it into a mp4. I use Mac DVD Ripper Pro: http://www.macdvdripperpro.com/. Its $25 but it has a pretty good and simple interface and gets the job done.

    Are you wanting this back-up to used on a streaming device? Or do you just want the disc to be copied over to a hard drive or another disc for back-up purposes only?

    MakeMKV is your friend, if best and cheapest is asked.
    (was still in free beta last time I tested)

    If a straight DVD backup is all you need, RipIt is a great option. It's not free, $24.95, but it's simple and receives frequent updates for "problem" discs.

    Disk.
    When my kids are done with a Thomas DVD, it looks like they ate a peanut butter sandwich on it.
    I want to save originals and give them a hard copy.


    Thanks for the replies.

    If using RipIt or MKV, 2 questions
    What is the outcome format?
    Best way to get onto disk? (do I need DVD2onex2 or something similar)
