I recall there being a good piece of software on MacUpdate which allowed you to easily copy DVD's under Mac OS X, but MacUpdate pulled it and then his product was pulled from his own web site as legal authorites overran his operation of distrubuting the software.

If you intend to copy commerical DVD's, I wouldn't advise it. Most new DVD's nowadays use highly-advanced security protection on DVD's to make copying them pratically impossible for thr most part, anyway.

DVDBackup to rip the DVD then use DVD2OneX to compress them to fit on a DVDR.

Thanks all.

Doesn't seem to be cost effective.

Unusual that the PC world has dedicated software that seems to do it all.

One word describes this thread: "Theft".

this is only theft if he is copying movies that he does not own. I make backup of some of my DVD's and it is perfectly legal for me to do so. I do not sell or give away copies of my backup DVD's to anyone.

JohnnyG4,

this is only to see if it can be done and how!

Why would you want to copy a movie?

There's the cost of time, the blank disc? Poorer quality video on the movie because to fit a commercial movie onto a single sided/single layer disc it needs to be recompressed and with that you lose picture quality and introduce unwanted artifacts. Also and not least you lose the bonus features on the disc which sometimes are quite interesting.

I agree, it is theft, so why would anyone want to do that? To save a couple of bucks? Not worth it.

Guys

It is NOT theft to make a copy of a DVD you own as long as it is only for your personal use.

Why would you want to??

If you have kids in the house that know how to use the DVD player they can destroy discs quite quicky and they can be expensive or impossible to replace.

Disney movies are only relesed for a short time and then disappear for ten years. If one of them gets ruined it can be a heartbreak if you are trying to complete a collection.

I frequently make copies of DVD's just to protect them from this scenario.

Lets not jump the gun by assuming everyone trying to copy discs is trying to steal them.
