    I just got my first mac yesterday and have never used a mac before, so far I am super impressed but I'm trying to learn how to use it. So I'm trying to figure out how to copy a dvd?? Preferably using the software I have or freeware. Anyone know of any good tutorials or have any tips I can use???

    i just copied a DVD for the first time with mactheripper. when i burned the DVD i created the video_TS folder and then put the files in it. only problem is the DVD does not play on its own. i have to point the video_ts folder and then hit play and it works. i have not tried this in a stand alone dvd player yet just on my mac. would this play fine in a regular dvd player or should you just burn the DVD files onto the disk without a folder. thanks for the help and this should help out the 1st poster too.

    It 'should' play right away...As an example, here's what I do, I mean, if i was to copy movies...this would be the way I would go about it.

    01] MacTheRipper to get data off of disc, choosing wether to rip the whole disc with menu and all, or just the movie itself.
    02] If the folder with the movie files inside it are under 4.4GB, I'd just drag the 'video_ts' folder into Toast Titanium(I think the video_ts option is under the "copy" tab). Once you click to burn, it'll automatically add in the audio folder that should have been created as well.
    ***If the folder is larger than 4.4GB, I"ll direct the folder into DVD2One, and determine how to compress the larger than life file. :)
    03]Once DVD2One has done it's job, I'll do the same sequence as in #2.

    Do you have Toast? Or, I guess I should ask...can you "get" it? :noes:

    You must burn the DVD using "DVD-ROM (UDF)" setting under Toast if you want it to play correctly in a standalone dvd player. At least that has been my experience.
