This tutorial is intended to let you exercise your "fair use" rights under copyright law to either "time-shift" or "space-shift" DVD content which you may have purchased legitimately. An example of time-shifting would be to temporarily store the data from a DVD you rented so as to watch it at a later time after you have returned the disc (and avoided late fees!). An example of space-shifting would be to copy one or more DVD discs to your laptop hard drive so as to watch them while on a long airplane flight. And to also backup your purchased, retail DVD's.

Needed Files:
DVDBackup 1.3 - http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18599
DVD2OneX ($49.99 euro) - http://www.dvd2one.com/download.php
Toast Titanium (or other DVD burning software). (Version 5.2 used in this Tutorial)

Before beggining, let DVDPlayer play the movie to set the Region Code or to Verify the Region Code, then Run DVDBackup.

When you run DVDBackup drag the DVD/Movie Icon that's on your desktop into the box to add all the DVD Files to be decrypted. In the Region selection select your Region Code (USA is 1). (I have not tested the "Region Free" feature.)
By default everything is checkmarked to Remove Macrovision Protection and CSS Encryption, so leave those checked. Select "Process Files" choose your directory, let it create the new folder "VIDEO_TS".

After DVDBackup is complete you will then run DVD2OneX, you have to purchase the full version or you will end up with only 30min of play in your DVD.

In DVD2OneX click the "Select" button and open the folder "VIDEO_TS" that you just created using DVDBackup.
A side popout window will open, select the Audio and Subtitles you wish to use. And about 99.9% of the time you will want Angle 1.

Copy-
Diskcopy: This is the entire DVD, which includes the Extras and Frills(menus, etc..) If you choose this in the Ratio select Variable.
Movie Only: This is neat, it'll copy only the movie, so when you burn the DVD as soon as you pop it in it plays the movie, no menu's, etc.. When you choose this, select Constant in the Ratio.

Now Select "Start". Do NOT use the same VIDEO_TS folder the DVDBackup files are in, choose a different directory and make another VIDEO_TS folder!
After that's finished you can delete the files DVDBackup created, all you need now is the files DVD2OneX created.

Use the DVD Burning software of your choice and use the programs "Help" and search for the how-to on burning the DVD.

Make sure you leave all the files inside the VIDEO_TS folder when using your DVD Burning Software! ScreenShot attatched.

Remove any hidden files such as .DS_Store

Your DVD should work in most stand-alone DVD players.

when you said, "let idvd play the movie", do you mean the whole movie or just a little of the movie to get the region code?

thanx

You don't have to let iDVD play the whole movie, just a little part of it so it can verify the region code.

Speed varries on your computer. Took me an hour and a half, but supposivly there might be a faster why to do it (CloneDVD) but I don't think that's out for Mac.

So far, I have had no problem backing-up my DVD Movie collection, untill now. I ran DVDback-up and then used DVDXzone, then went to burn with Toast (5.2) I get and error message says I don't have enough free space? 4.4 needed, 4.4 available? has anyone else run into this?

I haven't recieved Panther yet, so no, I haven't ran into that problem.

Is it talking about hard disc space? If so, you will most likely need to free more than the minimum amount wanted.

If it's talking about your DVD-R then maybe you should check and make sure it's not already written on.

This is a great tutorial for a beginner like me.

However i am having difficulties. I follow the instructions using DVDbackup andDVD2oneX, but when it comes to burning the DVD i still cannot get the DVD player to automatically play the movie. (The only way i can view the movie is if i use "file open" VIDEO_TS in the DVD2oneX folder i created. (I am using Disc Blaze version 2 DVD burning software)

Has anyone got any idea what i am doing wrong ?

My machine is G5 1.8mhz 1GB RAM with Sony Superdrive.


Regards

rg,

I'm a little confused on what you mean.

Are you talking about putting it back inside your G5 and having it automatically playing after you burned a DVD? Or are you having problems burning it and having it play on standard DVD players?

How did the burn process go? Did you go semi-like the picture and title the DVD with no spaces, all capitals(not necessary I don't think) and put the VIDEO_TS folder in there and also, delete any invisible files .dbstore or something similar.

Did the burn complete? What happens when you put the DVD back inside the drive after it did? Do you get the DVD Icon on your desktop?

Thanks,

sKaD

skad, GREAT tutorial. I just tried following it step by step and got the same error message that zimmerb61 got.

I ripped the hulk using dvdbackup and used dvd2onex to create the video_ts folder. Now following your instructions I loaded up toast 5.1 and created a new DVD called THE_HULK and added VIDEO_TS to the project.


Now in the VIDEO_TS folder in toast it lists 36 items. When I click record I get an error message saying

"There's not enough gree space on this disc: 2312904 sectors (4.4 GB) are needed, 2295106 sectors (4.4 GB) are available."

Does VIDEO_TS include unnecessary files that need to be deleted before recording? I noticed your screen shot of two towers showed only 10 items but I have 36!

Here's a list of all the items in VIDEO_TS that were added to Toast:

.DS_Store
VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VIDEO_TS.VOB
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_0.VOB
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB
VTS_01_3.VOB
VTS_01_4.VOB
VTS_02_0.BUP
VTS_02_0.IFO
VTS_02_0.VOB
VTS_02_1.VOB
VTS_03_0.BUP
VTS_03_0.VOB
VTS_03_1.VOB
VTS_04_0.BUP
VTS_04_0.IFO
VTS_04_0.VOB
VTS_04_1.VOB
VTS_05_0.BUP
VTS_05_0.IFO
VTS_05_0.VOB
VTS_05_1.VOB
VTS_06_0.BUP
VTS_06_0.IFO
VTS_06_0.VOB
VTS_06_1.VOB
VTS_07_0.BUP
VTS_07_0.IFO
VTS_07_0.VOB
VTS_07_1.VOB

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. =) Thanks!

I recoded the hulk using dvd2onex and this time i chose film mode so it deletes the unnecessary stuff. now i only have those 10 items and it seems like it will fit. however after hitting the record button it says "disc write failed". what brand dvd's are you guys recording on? i tried with two brand new tdk dvd-r's and this is the error i got. however then i popped in an apple dvd r and it seems to be writing no problem as we speak. we'll see how it turns out.
