    Sure.

    I prefer Mac The Ripper. A search on here or google will get you started.

    Mac The Ripper - this will copy the VOB files in their full size to your hard drive.
    Handbrake - this will rip the DVD and re-encode it to DIVX/H264.

    I've heard there are some compability issues with ripping some dvds using handbreak, although I dont know if this is true or not. I use Mactheripper and put them on an ext hd. I only have a few on my computer because it takes up too much room on the internal hd.

    I think VLC can burn to a dvd, although im not 100% sure. videohelp.com lists a bunch of info about ripping software, but your probably going to want to use mactheripper to get a copy of the actual dvd file, and not sure what program to use to burn to a dvd.

    Handbrake works well and is free, but Toast is great if you do a lot of backup work.
