Simple question, and I've not had luck searching for the answer.

I have a DVD (private, non-copywrited DVD from my wedding made by the DJ) that I'd like to copy to the HDD to be able to play it from the HDD, hopefully with included software, like idvd.

I just created "new image" using disk utility. I selected in the dropdowns 1. DVD/CD Master, 2. no encryption. But when I go to where I copied it, it shows up as a .cdr file and "mounts" an image, but I can only figure out how to see the underlying files and I can't figure out how to play it.

I'm a 4-day noob to Mac, so sorry for what's probably an easy answer (I hope).

Since this is your DVD and not commercial we can discuss it.

Why even make an image? If you want the full DVD on your hard drive, since it does not have copy protection, just open the DVD in finder and grab the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folder and drag to your desktop. I would make a folder with the DVD's name and put those folders inside.

Then open DVD Player in Applications and point it to that VIDEO_TS Folder. It should play. You can also use Handbrake and rip it to an AVI that will take up a lot less hard drive space and still look good, and play it in Quicktime.

Thank you so much! It's a DVD from 2005, and has just been sitting for 4 years, and I wanted to get it on the computer to avoid data rot. Thanks, again!

If you ever wanted to make a DMG image of the DVD, select no compression and read only. Am trying it on a home made DVD of mine right now to be sure. Will post the results.

Works great!

You can also download the free app Burn which will allow you to make an img - sometimes it's easier for people then messing with disk utility.

Creating a disk image for a DVD is a waste of time. Make a folder, copy the contents (as mentioned before) of the DVD to it, simple as that. Done. Disk images for DVD's have no advantage, and take way more time. Total waste of effort.

Good to know. thanks. Like I said, bottom line for me was backing the data up somewhere so I could replace it if needed (I suppose....but how often do we really look at that crap; I guess I'll be thankful that one time when I'm 75 and my kids make a cheesy collage movie for me. Yay!).
