    i need some help from a handbrake veteran or someone with a bit just more experience than me..

    I'm looking to do an exact copy of my dvds, i know that handbrake rips them into great mkv files and that's cool i need that sometimes but as of now i just want the exact same files.. that way i can choose subtitles and chapter and have a menu. What would the settings be in order for me to get the exact thing without the protection?

    If this is not possible, what program would you suggest? I've read that mactheripper makes bad decryptions, i don't know if it's true but i don't want to spend hours and a few dvds to finding out..

    I'm also planning on using either "Burn" or toast 10 to burn the new dvds.. is there another program that would be better..?

    I've searched for 3 hours and i can't find a concrete answer..

    You have to use something like MacTheRipper. Hanadbrake won't do it.

    I don't see why MacTheRipper wouldn't work. I've used it before, and it makes fine copies. But your mileage may vary*

    thank you.. i got a bit discouraged when i read that it made some errors while ripping but i'm gonna give it a try.. i love the quick response on this forum..

    appreciate it fellas.. would burn be a better program to burn the image? how about liquid cd? or toast titanium 10? i love the simple setups the most..

    i don't like when it gives you 100 options to tweak things.. i just want to burn a dvd so it plays on most dvd players..

    thanks a lot
