    I am new to Mac and was using AnyDVD and CloneDVD to back up my DVD library. They do not make software for the Mac so I was wondering if you guys could make recommendations for programs that will allow you to make backup copies of DVD's for home use. Thanks in advance for the help.

    EDIT: I did do a search but the most recent discussion about this is almost 4 months old so I just wanted to see if there was anything new.

    You can do this with Handbrake, it is pretty good, and free. but unfortunately it will be a lossy process. sometimes takes a long time (avg 5 hours per 2 hour movie). I advice you try this third party DVD ripper for Mac, it works pretty well. If you are interested in it, here is a guide about how to download and use it

    I just tried RipIt for the first time last night. Drop dead simple. You literally just press the "start" button, and you're good to go.

    RipIt is extremely simple to use
    But Mac DVD Ripper Pro lets you rip directly to an .ISO and will let you Burn too
