Hi all,

Im a fresh mac user (just bought a dual 2gb G5 yesterday) and i am entering all this coming from a PC world. So my question is this, when burning a DVD on a mac, what software is best to:

- rip/decrypt the dvd
- burn these onto another dvd

thanks guys

if it's your own stuff, or off something like EyeTv - iMovie and iDVD. If you want to make (legal only remember) backups of DVDs then Toast is the best.

Macs Native DVD authoring er um could be better its one area that PC's are slighly stronger.

I take it this DVD of your is probably a movie ;) that is dual layer and is bigger than 4.7 Gb in size. ;) ;)

If so you you need the freeware program Mactheripper to extract the DVD Image and remove the region coding and macrovision. I dont know why you want to decryt if its your own material :eek: ;) :p

Then I use the commercial program DVDRemaster to fit it all on one disc asuming you dont have a dual layer writer.

Finally

I use the commercial program Roxio Toast Titanium to create DVD Video from VIDEO_TS
