    Help ! How do I copy DVDs to a mac
    If I open the DVD in finder I can copy the files, but not the menus, etc. I'd like to have a backup file that i could use to directly burn a new DVD if mine got damaged (I'm backing up personal DVDs that I hired for family parties, no copyright issues...)

    Rather than use Finder to copy and burn the files, I'd suggest a CD/DVD mastering program. I use Roxio's Toast, but it is pricey for what you want to do. I'd suggest a program like the very simply-named, Burn. I haven't used it in awhile, but from what I recall it will do a disc-to-disc burn.

    Alternatively, you can create an image of the disc using Disk Utility (Applications => Utilities) and then burn the image to the destination disc.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Nope, but Handbrake will.
