Thread: burning or backing up a dvd
03-08-2006, 08:21 PM #1tonsoffun18204Guestburning or backing up a dvd
So i have a G5 Imac and i was wondering how i would be able to back up my dvds that i own to another dvd that can be played on most dvd players. I have burned a few dvds using idvd from files that i already have but i was wondering if there was a program that could just copy a dvd and put it onto a blank one. I have handbrake and mac the ripper but not sure what they are really used for. Any help would be nice and anything that is free is better

Mac the Ripper is used to rip encoded DVDs to your hard drive. You'll need to burn the resulting Video_TS and Audio_TS folders to a DVD using Toast or Disk Utility. Most DVDs are more than 4.7GB though, so you'll need a compression tool like DVD2ONEX.I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

it is really easy actually....
first step, use the forum search function and see that this questino has been answered about one million times
number two, to follow up surfwax, go purchase toast 7 titanium from roxio.com, best burning utility out there by far and will compress for you just like dvd2one will
number three, use mactheripper
4, dont steal movies
edit: sorry for being rude, but im tired of seeing these posts.MoTM honor roll...

First off i am not stealings movies, i have footage that i want to put on a dvd. I don't want to have to pay for something either since i already about this computer. I can compress the files using handbrake, just need to get it on a dvd to play on a dvd player

when u compressed the files in handbrake what format did u end up with, avi, mp4?
and if u are backing up dvds read surfwaxs post, pretty much sums it up, and u dont need to have toast, u can burn it thru disk utility
