    Yes he did. He said so in his post.

    To the OP: are you looking to watch your backups on your computer or do you want to actually burn a copy? For watching them on your computer, I've heard that RipIt works well for this purpose. Those that use it can comment better, but I've heard good things about it.

    *EDIT: SpeedFleX beat me to the suggestion about RipIt.*

    My concerns with MactheRipper mirror yours. And even though I've done the whole secret handshake/"gifting" thing to purchase the latest version, I usually go the Windows route (AnyDVD + DVD Decrypter) for ripping (to .iso, VIDEO_TS, whatever). Once I get it on the computer, I can switch back to OS X and manipulate it any way I wish, whether that's burning to disc (menus and all) or converting it to .mp4 (or .mkv) to watch it with Plex.

    I used to use MacTheRipper, but the way the fellow offers it, it's a pain to get updates (formatting the email message with the proper info just right). I would think they could just keep a list of email addresses from those who paid. But, to go so far as to having to even show when you joined the forum...

    Anyway, I also recommend RipIt. The interface couldn't be any eaiser to use, updates are easy to get (no stupid hoops to jump through like a circus animal), and so far for me it just works.

    RipIt does just that - rips the contents from the DVD to your HD. To burn them you need another piece of software such as Roxio Popcorn or (the one I use) DVD2One

    Apple's iDVD won't do it as that is designed for homemade movies.

    While DVD2One can burn directly to a DVD, I prefer to make a disk image first. Then I play that disk image in DVD Player to make sure the quality is good enough for my taste and there are no hiccups. Finally I use Disk Utility to burn the image to a physical disk.

    Just copy the entire VIDEO_TS file and play it with VLC player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/. You get an exact copy of teh DVD and full quality and menus
