    New MacBook - Toast Question
    we bought our daughter the upgraded white MacBook with the superdrive so she could burn DVD's. I ripped one with handbrake, it took about 40 minutes. I'm using Toast 7 titanium, and it's about 1/10 of the way, and it's been burning for over 30 minutes.

    is it always this slow, or am I doing something wrong?

    Handbrake is really meant to convert DVDs to MP4 to watch on the computer or on the iPod, not to burn them back to DVD.

    Toast is really meant for copying media or files to CD/DVD or burning media files to a data DVD. Keep in mind that unless you copy a DVD directly, you are going to lose a lot of quality when burning MP4, AVI, MOV or other files to a DVD. If you simply want to copy a DVD, get MacTheRipper, rip the video_TS folder to your hard drive with it and then burn it to a new DVD with Toast.

    Rip times with Handbrake will depend greatly on the video settings as well as the processor and burn times on toast will depend greatly on your processor and the speed of the drive/media in question/

    Yeah what he said. With mac the ripper and toast it should take from an hour and a half to two and a half hours to burn a dvd.

    Reads the articles. Apparently only copying encrypted media is illegal, and that ruling is under appeal. That one is going to end up in the US Supreme Court. As it is, that ruling goes against the DMCA and it terms for "Fair use" by the consumer.

    Either way, a law you can not enforce is a useless law.

    very good point there
    but as a general rule, most films have a dvd encryption on them.
    Guess it depends what you copy

    You can always find a way to enforce it, that's the point of having an executive body in the government... to execute things is their for crying out loud job.

    I skimmed through them. I don't see what the difference is between making a copy of a CD I own and a DVD I own.

    I understand that. someone my wife works with makes backups of her DVD's on their PC. I thought there would be OS X software that would allow me to do the same.

    Sure you can, if you live in an invasive Police State. In any sort of a free society a law such as this is virtually impossible to enforce even part of the way, much less fully. No sort of encryption is going to stop everything and there will always be a way around that. Anyone who thinks this behavior can or should be controlled on an individual basis by that state (any state) needs to take a long hard look at what kind of society they want to live in.

    There is. MacTheRipper is what you want to to get the Video off the DVD, and TOAST is what you want to put it back on a new DVD. Both programs are perfectly legal AND legitimate, and what you do with your DVDs in your own home for personal use is up to you.
