Before anyone says it, yes, I searched the hell out of the forums and Google before posting this. Also, sorry if this is not the correct forum, this is the only one it seems to fit with. So here it is. I need to know if it is possible to copy a commercial DVD using only Disk Utility. A friend of mine told me that I could do it without using Handbrake or MTR by using Disk Utility and DL DVDs. So after wasting two DVDs, I'm now wondering if this is true. I have read a few guides on the web and watched a video on YouTube explaining the process. All of these sources say the exact same thing as my friend. I've followed the processes perfectly, but the output I get does not play in any DVD players in the house (which I'm aware that not all DVD players support some DL discs), nor will it play in either of my PCs or my MBP. So, after saying all that, I just want to know if it is possible without Handbrake and MTR? Like I said, several guides claim it can be done, and my friend said that that's the only way he copies movies (and he's the kind of guy that doesn't lie about stuff as far as I know). I am fully aware that it is unlawful to copy commercial DVDs for distribution or anything other than private use. This is one of the reasons I would rather use Disk Utility. From what I understand, it copies everything (including any encryptions). All I want are legitimate backup copies of my DVDs and I would prefer to do it the easiest way possible as I do not have the money for burning software like Toast right now. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
