    Okay.. so, I'm trying to burn copies of dvds,
    like the second season of the office for example..

    On my PC we used DVDshrink to rip the dvd and then the same program would burn a copy on a blank dvd.

    I downloaded Mactheripper and ripped the dvd, and burned it using the burn folder in the finder.
    The first time the file was too large [ 7 something gb when the dvd is only 4]
    The second time I thought it worked but when I went to watch it it said "incorrect disc" ..

    I'm not sure if I'm doing somehting wrong of if there is a better program for ripping and shrinking the size of dvds??

    you need dual layer dvds, which are 8.5gb, vs. the single layer's 4.7gb

    I use DVD2oneX for compressing, and always burn with Toast
