    Thank you for reading this. Allow me to be very, very, very clear; I own the movies I am backing up onto my Mac. I am about to buy an AppleTV and look forward to getting my DVDs onto my computer and getting them in the proper format for AppleTV. I'm not the brightest bulb in the tech world, but the last time I checked it's legal for me to own a DVD and have a copy of it on my computer.

    So, with all of that said, I use mactheripper to grab movies off my DVDs. (I use mactheripper because it is important to me to have a highest-quality copy from which I can convert compressed copies - the same way I prefer to rip my CDs at lossless.) I tried ripping 3 Iron, a Sony Movies Classic movie I own, a few minutes ago and ran into the same problem as owners of Bond's Casino Royale, also a Sony film.

    Has anyone found a way to rip highest quality copies of Sony DVDs onto his/her Macs? Thank you.

    Stuck in the middle with you
    I haven't found anything either. It seems like the creator of MTR has stopped working too hard on it, which is understandable because it's an extremely intensive process. I, too feel your pain, because an old roommate stole my Tombstone DVD, and I couldn't get it to copy on MTR.

    I was able to rip Casino Royale with a beta version of MTR (I forget what version), but you have to donate to get access to the beta. It works though..
