    the OP didnt really specify if he wants to backup his DVD or encode it to another format.

    use HandBrake to convert the DVD to an avi or mpeg4 video that QuickTime can play.

    or use MacTheRipper to rip a DVD to a video_ts folder and then use the video_ts option in Toast Titanium under Video to burn to DVD format. Toast Titanium 8 includes Popcorn so it does Fit-to-DVD video compression if needed.

    i have not tried HandBrake but like i said i didnt wanna have a 2 program step just to rip then jump to another program just to burn it unless that is my last solution. i dont wanna back up the dvd i just wanna rip it and burn it with ONE program haha thats why ive came here cuz i know nothing bout Macs since i've always grew up on Pc's

    i've lookin at other programs like DVDCOPY for Mac? dont know if thats any good or not.

    also i've used mac the ripper and it ripped fine but for some reason POPCORN wont read it and says the disc is damaged when i look at the real copy of the dvd its perfectly fine.
    and theres nothing wrong with his burner cuz i brang some already burned movies over and it burned perfectly fine so i dont know whats the dilemma

    If you just want to copy, why not use Disk Utility to create a master image and then use Disk Utility to burn the disk image? I personally haven't tried it (I just back up dvd's using handbrake) but it seems to work with every single other disc I've wanted to clone.
