Is there a good DVD Ripper/Backup program for OS X?
Mac The Ripper is by far the best
Its the only one I know exists.
If you want to Rip to a Video file (.mp4 or .mov or something) Transmission is for you.
MacTheRipper to get the DVD onto your harddrive, and Handbrake to compress it to a more respecatable size.
Shouldn't someone sticky the answer to this question as it gets asked time and time again?
Pop a DVD in. Click Copy. Pop in the blank. Done. Great for making back-ups.
I would use mac the ripper.
freeware for burning
Is there freeware for putting/burning it on a single layer DVD+R after using MTR?
I've heard of Nero's toast and others that cost $$, but not sure about freeware. I guess I could always get bootcamp and use windows - there are a plethora of programs out there for windows. thanks for any advice.
Macs are lousy DVD rippers if your DVDs are from more than 1 region.
I prefer using 0SEx to rip DVDs. I like how it rips the DVDs to a single .vob file and not in 1gb segments. Lot easier to encode a single file then multiple.
then what program do you use to put it on a blank dvd?
I also second mac the ripper. To convert files from dvd vob format to like avi or mp4 I use VisualHub. It's much faster than handbrake IMO. For burning I use dragon burn, a simple burn program called Burn (freeware you can find it on versiontracker) or Toast.
I use MTR followed by Toast. Works like a charm!
can you get toast for free?
I downloaded handbrake and tried it for the first time the other day, and it worked flawlessly.
I don't think so, but again SimplyBurns does the trick. If you have a DVD you want to back up it couldn't be easier. If you want to convert formats, compress, etc. then you need a different tool, but for backing up DVDs I think SimplyBurns is the way to go.
