• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.

DVD Backup, DVD2OneX, Toast 6 Titanium



I own a PowerBook G4 laptop...
I successfully burned about 5 DVDs using DVD Backup, DVD2oneX, and Toast 6. I had problems burning with Memorex Discs when I bought them in bulk (Error message: "Could not record because there is a problem with the source material. Result Code = -18774.") After reading other forums I found people had similar problems with Memorex discs bought in bulk.
I returned the Memorex discs and bought 50 Fuji DVD-R. I AM STILL GETTING THAT SAME ERROR MESSAGE. Now I'm not so sure the problem is with my media, but rather the software. I know the source material is not the problem because I'm making backups of Hollywood movies. Once I use DVD2OneX I can view the VIDEO_TS file using DVD Player and the movie plays perfectly.

I'm really frustrated now. Can anyone help? Thanks!
