    Read the illustrated manual called ReadMe that came with the download.

    looks to me like you are trying to save to an invalid volume.

    yeah sounds like you tried to save the Video_TS folder as a volume or something? just make sure you read the ReadMe. you've got to save it to somewhere on your hard drive - so just find a spot, check all the MTR settings (region, macrovision etc) then go.

    Write Error using Mac The Ripper

    The "Write Error: there is not enough free space" comes up when I put in a dvd; I've recently ripped and burned 20 dvds within the last two months. It says there is not enough free space when i've checked that there is more than enough GBs on my hard drive to copy it 6xs over. What gives?

    I'm using a Mac Book Pro purchased in April of 07. The Apple store can't help me because it's not their software. They checked that a dvd can be copied in Disk Utility. I'm kinda at a loss because of how successful it was just last week.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    You are probably trying to rip a recent dvd like Wall-E or Prince Caspian. The movie companies have been introducing new protection schemes to fool some of the old ripping software. One of the tell tale signs is when the disk space for the dvd shows as 58 GB in the finder. Also, I am guessing that your Mac the Ripper is pretty old, from 2005 or so? I think to get a recent copy you have to jump through hoops on the Mac the Ripper forum site. Anyways, if you have trouble ripping a dvd, google the title of the dvd along with terms like "cannot rip" and see if it comes up in any online discussions.
