    This is my first mac with a superdrive. I want to copy my p90x dvd's for archive in case they get scratched up.

    What is the easiest way to copy dvd's?

    Thanks,

    Good man/lady. :)

    OP, if you want to create an exact copy, use Mac The Ripper to rip the whole DVD to your hard drive, and then something like Toast to burn it back onto a blank DVD.

    If you want to rip the DVD and store it on your Mac for viewing later, or for transfer to an iPod or iPhone, use Mac The Ripper to import it, and then Handbrake to convert it to an iTunes/Front Row/iPod compatible file.

    trouble reading DVDs

    Have you actually tried copying your P90X DVDs? Mine won't even play on my MacBook Pro, so I don't think I will be able to copy them.
