    I'm looking for a software where I can dup the DVDs I have now. Does anyone know of any affordable/free ones out there?

    Are you talking about data DVDs or (commercial) movie DVDs?

    Data DVDs can be burned for free using Disk Utility (make disk image -> burn that), cheaply with nice applications like Disco or - if you want the best - spend some money on Toast (which just has come in a brand new, universal version, and looks very good).

    With movie DVDs you need to take another approach, you can either use something like MacTheRipper to - well - rip the TS_FOLDER, and then use Popcorn (or Toast) to burn that back to a blank DVD (not entirely sure about the procedure, as I've never done that, others might provide corrections/additions), or if you don't need an exact copy, but just want to backup your DVD collection, use Handbrake to rip the DVD in H.264/AAC mov files that can be watched on any (decently spec'ed) computer with QuickTime or better (;)).
