    I'm going away to school soon, and I hate carrying DVDs and worrying about losing them. After ripping a DVD with MTR, how to i turn the file with VIDEO_TS, etc into a disk image to mount with toast to make it playable? Thanks!

    u could just drag the entire folder onto VLC and play it there. or encode it to an m4p or mkv using handbrake.
    (and from there add it to iTunes even).

    DVD player will play Video_TS files straightaway. No need to burn an image or convert anything. Just open it like a DVD once the app is running.

    Yo ucan just play it in VLC. I would suggest converting it in handbrake first though. I usually convert it to .avi

    Thanks for all of the responses!

    The VLC solution works, but i just want to be able to right click it, mount it, and play it in DVD Player. I tried opening the VIDEO_TS folder in DVD Player and that works too. I'd just prefer having it mounted as an iso file. Is there any way I can convert the VIDEO_TS file into an iso file?

    I think it's nicer to have the full DVD at it's highest quality along with special features and subtitles as opposed to just a movie file containing only the movie.

    so just use the Video TS. I personaly see no advantage between that an an iso, and its more complicated.

    I don't know how to describe this, but it just feels "cleaner" with one file as opposed to a folder full of files that mean nothing to me. Is there any way of doing. Sorry if it sounds like I'm asking for too much.

    Thanks, but that seems no easier than any of the other methods. I just want to know if there's a way to convert the VIDEO_TS folder into an iso file.

    Don't.

    Just put the VIDEO_TS folder into another folder named after the movie and drag that onto VLC when you want to play it.

    No need to fiddle around making an .iso file.

    Use HandBrake

    Use HandBrake to rip straight from the DVD. MacTheRipper is not needed if you just want the feature portion of the DVD (the movie) and it will play in most media applications. Also handbrake creates a smaller file then MacTheRipper.

    why are you dragging files? just go to file-open and find the video ts folder with either vlc or dvd

    he wants the full quality rip

    Put the VIDEO_TS folder in another folder. Name the second folder like this (yourtitlehere).dvdmedia This will let it play in DVD player just by double clicking it, or you could just drag the VIDEO_TS folder into DVD player.
