    New to most Apple applications and I was wondering what DVD rip software was the best for the MAC? I would like something simple and preferrablly that allows me to adjust the target file size so I can play the movies on my iPaq or my PSP. Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    If you're wanting to play them on your portable devicies, try Handbrake. If you're wanting to backup a DVD to another DVD, use MacTheRipper. Both are free and quite simple to use.

    Yes, you can burn them on discs using Handbrake.

    I like Handbrake a lot and I'd recommend it.
