Okay. I've got a small child who is insistent on being the one to put the DVDs into the player and soon I'm sure scratches, food and other things will be ruining all the DVDs that grubby little hands can reach. I need to make backup copies of these DVDs. I don't want to rip them, I don't want to compress them. I want to make exact copies of DVDs I own, menus and all. Sorry, I'm betting I'm not the first person to ask this but I can't find it searching. I downloaded RIPIT and it seemed to have given me a copy of the VIDEO_TS folder but when I burned it to a dual layer DVD it shows up on my TV as some 4:3 version (bars to the right and left of the video). I tried burning with Toast and then DVD2ONE. I've tried changing settings on the DVD player but it still is messed up. It's a recent machine and plays pretty much anything with no problem. I need to either find another program or figure out what's going wrong with RIPIT (not much help on their site at all). Thanks in advance!
