    Alright, before I begin I'm accepting the fact that this may have been asked before.
    I just recently got my first mac, after getting completely fed up with Windows on plenty of pc's i took the plunge and made the switch and have zero complaints or problems thus far.

    I used to burn plenty of DVD's on my pc's and my first line of business with the mac was to find a way to continue my collection. From my limited research I found out Toast was the easiest and most straightforward way to burn DVD's. I jumped on it and bought it without looking too far into it(possible mistake in the end?). went to copy a dvd and turns out it does not get through the encryption on DVD's(on current settings).

    I'm looking for some help in burning encrypted dvd's. Whether it is another program to break the encryption and allow Toast to burn it, or another program altogether to do it all in
    one step, please let me know how I can make it happen.

    Please note, I plan to burn DVD's for my own personal enjoyment, just for all those peoples that would step up to say something about that.
    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this.

    download mactheripper if you want the videots folders and such

    or get handbrake if you want the dvd encoded prior to you burning it

    Mac The Ripper 3

    Handbrake + VLC (VLC is needed for decryption)

    RipIt (can rip some things that MTR and HB can't, but it costs money)

    It sounds like you are using the old freeware version still floating around the net which is Version 2.6.6. That one is obsolete and has not been supported for about three years. To obtain the current supported version (v. 3.0 r14m) which handles many movies that 2.6.6 can't, go to and read the stickies in the MacTheRipper forum which will explain how to obtain the latest version.
