    I have many home made dvd discs (with dvd menus etc) and i want to find some way to convert them to some file that will be playable to a mac, keeping the interface but without needed to be played on a dvd drive. Is this possible and how?

    Open a Terminal and use something like this.

    Code:
    dd if=/dev/dvd of=image_name.iso
    
    You can use diskutil list first to find the /dev/ entry for the dvd drive and the of= part can include a /path/to/storing/image_name.iso to put them into some storage directory. Now to play them back you need to mount the .iso file and use something like VLC which can open the VIDEO_TS folder that will be contained in the .iso image, it will have the menus in there as this will be an exact copy of the entire disk.

    hmm i right clicked on the dvd disk, pressed duplicate and the entire dvd with the videoTS folders etc. was copied on the desktop. How can i create a playable dvd out of that duplicate folder now?

    One more thing... the dvd has a start up clip that executes when inserting it on a player (autoplay). This clip was not available in the VIDEO_TS folder... how can i make it be included in the produced rip file?
