    I am new to MAC, but was told the easiest way to back up my dvd's was to RIP them to the hard drive using MACTHERIPPER, Compress them using DVD2ONEX, and finally BURN them using ROXIO TOAST TITANIUM. I am trying to do this but am running into a few problems.

    First, when I rip the DVD with MACTHERIPPER it only saves the VIDEO TS file, no audio??

    Then when I go to compress the file with DVD2ONEX, I get a error message of:
    "The selected folder does not contain a valid dvd-video fileset"

    Any idea what I am doing wrong?? Is there a easier way, or easier program to get this done?? Some direction is GREATLY APPRECIATED!!:confused::confused::confused:

    I really do not mean to be rude, but you could have googled and found the answer, in less time than it took you to create this thread.

    MTR, then Toast and/or Handbrake.

    Rip.

    MacTheRipper (free) + Toast Tiatanium (not free) with compress.

    Also, you could use Handbrake and then iDVD (both free) to compress.

    HandBrake is great, but it sounds like the OP wants a DVD Shrink type program that re-compresses the data to fit on a single-layer disc and preserves menus, subtitles, audio tracks, etc.
