    lol yeah it was, its my work in progress for when I graduate next year. iweb is actually quite powerful when you get into it.

    Did you have a look at handbrake? Is that what your after?

    That's what he said ...


    Anyway, if handbreak fails you (which it rarely does) also look into Mac the Ripper.

    On top of handbrake, you will need VLC. VLC contains the DVD decryption algorythm that handbrake cannot include.

    It's really that easy.

    they are compeltely different programs. what you should say is..

    "if handbrake fails you, use MTR so that handbrake can then succeed"

    :D

    Two years ago. MTR has failed miserably on me and hasn't been updated in years. Fairmount to Handbrake for the new protected DVD's is the only thing I've found that works. At least for free.

    I've never even tried ripping on my PPC units so I imagine it's the Intel, 2.6.6?

    I haven't been able to find a viable free MTR download link forever. FREE. Got to be free.

    Just know I went through hell on Wall-E & Dark Knight and Fairmount was the ticket.

    Sadly, mac offerings for these tasks really suck arse.

    I still use AnyDVD (SlySoft) along with 1Click DVD copy. Windows only but they have never failed me.

    no, that isnt the Intel version - the Intel version is 3.0r and is VERY rare.

    PM me ;)

    thats fair enough, i havent tried the new MTR on those discs but i have NEVER had a problem with it.

    you havent tried the latest (few years old still thought lol) MTR.
