    Has anyone used this progam?

    I find it hard to believe that a programs whose disk image is only 3.15 MB can do what they are claiming and only for $20.

    "The DVD copy for Mac is able to copy DVD to DVD, backup or burn the entire movie from DVD to DVD. It can even remove DVD protections such as CSS, RC and RCE.

    .....outputs complete DVD folders, and directly burns DVD movies to new DVD discs with no protections. Therefore, you can choose to save DVD folder on your computer or directly burn DVD to a blank DVD disc."

    Is it bogus?

    Based on the fact that they offer the same software repackaged under several dozen different names and are one of the biggest offenders when it comes to forum and blog spam, I wouldn't give them my money.

    Indeed, I saw the thread title and came in here expecting to find spam. :D

    I'd steer well clear.

    Yeah, I was also wondering about iSkysoft. I just want a DVD ripper that will work on any DVD.

    I know MacTheRipper/Handbrake are good but I've ran into countless problems with each.

    Are you using the latest version of MacTheRipper?

    No, I'm using a 2.xx one. I know they are on 3.x.

    I'm probably wrong but I heard on the 3.x version you need VLC or something or other requirements, I'm not sure.

    I was just looking for an all-in-one ripper. I've seen numerous of these of Windows (I mean the kind of apps you actually pay for) but yet have one that people vouch for in Mac OS X.

    I highly recommend Ripit:

    http://ripitapp.com/

    It rips just about everything I have thrown at it even the newer discs with rip guard and all the new copy protection. Only problem I have is sometimes it doesn't work well with Toast when I burn backup copies.

    I also enjoy AnyDVD. Probably the only program I use for the Windows.
