    How is the easiest way to convert a DVD into an .iso file. I'd like to be able to convert some DVD's to images so I can view an electronic copy like it was a DVD with the menu.

    You mean video DVDs or data DVDs? If it is the former and there is no copy protection involved (commercial DVDs for example), then you can use Disk Utility for that.

    If it is the former and you those DVDs are copy protected, use RipIt or FairMount or MacTheRipper to copy (rip) the video DVDs to your HDD and once you're done, you can rename the parent folder in which the VIDEO_TS and the AUDIO_TS folder reside to something like example.dvdmedia.
    It is important that you add .dvdmedia (including the dot), which makes that folder a package, which opens the default software DVD player by double clicking on it.

    I am trying to convert Video DVD's. Basically I'm wanting to put .iso files on an external HD and play them on my WDTV and have them look just like the actual DVD.
