    Arrow Ripping DVDs to be played on PS3

    I have a bunch of DVDs that I want to put in my PS3 hard drive (80gb).

    By what I have read, I need to rip them in my computer and transfer them to a external hard drive and then put them in the PS3.

    (here comes my first doubt: I found a bunch of programs to stream videos to the PS3, like Azureus. If I stream to the PS3, and then ask for the PS3 to "copy" the movie, will that work fine? Will I have the same quality as the original DVD?)

    So what I have is:

    - bunch of DVDs

    - macbook pro (OS X 10.5.6)

    - PS3 80gbs

    - a WiFi network, with both PS3 and MBP connected to it

    - 250 gbs empty external hard drive formatted to FAT32

    and here's my first problem, because every tutorial I found told me the HD should be formatted to NTFS, but by what I understood, macs can't write to NTFS!

    Could anyone please point me in the right direction? I want to get rid of all these physical DVDs!

    Please see the following thread - the 2nd post in particular. - Announcements in Forum : Movies and Video

    Meanwhile try googling with "Mac" or "OS X" in the subject.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thanks bobtomay. Unfortunately, we don't permit discussion of DVD ripping here.
    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!
