    So I installed mactheripper tonight and tested it on a dvd. first time using it. The process itself went without a hitch and I saved the file onto my desktop.

    I must be missing something because I was under the impression that once it was copied onto the harddrive on my macbook, i thought it would be just a point and click thing and you can start watching your movies without having to use DVD's.

    Instead I got ".vob", ".bup" and ".ifo" files and won't play on quicktime.

    Do I have to compress it onto a dvd-r and watch it that way (which defeats the purpose of building a library onto my computer which I had hoped to do)?

    What the hell am I doing wrong? :hsugh:

    drag the video_ts folder in dvd player to play

    or use mediafork and convert the main movie into an xvid
