    I've received a "home made" family DVD which I want to make an extra copy of and if possible also convert from NTSC to PAL (my stand-alone DVD player can play NTSC DVDs, while the Mac will need to change its region which I don't want).

    From other posts I understand you first need to rip the contents using "Handbrake", then burn it using iDVD, but no posts explain which settings, file format etc. to use. Any good guides or someone who can post a quick rundown of the procedure here?

    Homemade DVDs aren't region coded, so it shouldn't be a problem to play on your Mac.

    I would use Disk Utility and make an 'image' of my DVD to be able to burn it later.
