    Just use MTR to copy the Video/TS folder to your Hard drive and then use Toast (not free) to rip back to a DVD.

    DragonBurn used to be free, but I don't think it is anymore. Do a search at Versiontacker or Mac-Update and see what you can find.

    If you can't find a good free way to make exact copies of discs, you can do it the poor man's way like me. I use HandBrake to rip high-quality .mov files from DVDs and then re-burn them through iDVD. It's also handy becuase you can often combine multiple DVDs into one, as some companies stretch TV series out over more discs than really needed.

    I then use my pseudo-backups for day-to-day use and keep my originals tucked away.

    Also, if you decide to use HandBrake, search around for the alternative icon. It was featured on many prominent blogs, so it shouldn't be hard to find. It replaces the ugly pineapple/martini logo with an actual handbrake.
