    I am looking for the best and the fastest DVD copying software out there for the mac that is free. I just need a simple one that moves the files from one disc to the next one, even though there is only one disk drive on my imac. Something like this might have already been asked, but I could not find it when I searched this forum or anything. Thanks.

    I don't know one that meets your criteria that is free
    But Mac DVDRipper Pro or RipIt are both well worth their nominal cost

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe Handbrake allows you to burn to another DVD directly. It is great for taking the DVD and putting it on your computer and encoding it, but as far as making another DVD, you will need something else.

    You might be right Dawg...perhaps mactheripper. I've used both but not often so I can't recall if ripper is the one for the job. :eek:

    MTR (old version) is free, but it only rips
    You still need something like Toast or maybe Burn to burn it

    MDRP is a one stop shop for less than $20 and works like a charm

    Do you know of a good place to get any of these softwares? Can I get them at the download part of cnet.com or something? I know that handbreak does not do it, I was just thinking that there might be something out there that could just copy a dvd to another dvd.
    :apple: Rules!

    A program that copied a commercial DVD directly to another DVD would be piracy and the company would be in so much trouble.

    We'll give the OP the benefit of the doubt, OK? He specifically referred to copying the files from one DVD to another. Besides which, plenty of DVD copy programs exist, so obviously it's not out of the question.

    Fortunately there are places where this is not the case, and you're allowed to make legal backups of the dvd's you own. Young kids destroy dvd's like you would not believe, even if you keep them out of reach. It's like some magic power I swear.

    Okay. I think that it is no longer illegal to copy a dvd because the courts decided that it was alright for them to be copied as long as they are not distributed. Or at leased it is not illegal to copy them to your computer anymore.
