I created a DVD on a PC using Adobe's Premier Elements 7. I now have switched to an iMac using OS X 10.6.3. Of course it plays well on the iMac. I want to create a copy of the DVD.

Can I do that on the iMac? How?

Either disc utility or Burn.
Burn is a free app that will let you copy the DVD, and disc utility you already have.

Make a Folder on your Desktop, copy the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders from the DVD into this new folder on your Desktop. Poof, DVD is copied. No extra software is needed at all.

A video DVD is only a regular UDF formatted data DVD with the properly formatted "_TS" folders on it. The audio folder will be empty, but it still must be present.

To burn a new copy of the DVD, insert a blank DVD into your Mac, when prompted, let your Mac open it in the Finder. Drag the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders into it, Burn it, done. It really is that simple.

The only exception is copy protected DVD's, and copying them is illegal.
