shrekkies should probably go to another forum...my concerns are legit...although copying private, personally-authored dvd's may not be in demand these days. we used to call them 'tapes' before the man got a hold of our mixes.

Yes, you can, and if you own the DVD, then making a back up copy is legal.

All you need is Fast DVD Copy

I forget the cost to buy the program right now, but it is around a hundred bucks, give or take. I am copying my entire movie collection to carry with me in my motor home. The longest it took per movie is two hours, the shortest about 45 minutes.

I have done about 50 so far and about 50 to go.

Cheers

it seems my issue with toast 6 and making 'copies' with one read have dissolved. check it out: if you enter more than one copy in toast's session pref's, AND THEN CANCELL ANY VERIFICATION WHICH MAY BE ACTIVE AFTER BURNING, toast will pooch back to a default mode of sorts, and cancel any requests you had originally inputed for multiple copies. all future copying must then be re-read.

lesson? keep verification settings turned off, and let it run. this ain't 1996.

Question

Okay, so I know that it is possible to copy encrypted DVDs, but how can I get the video and audio to be editable in Final Cut Pro? (I make demo reels for actors of their work, so I want to pull a clip from a DVD of a movie they've done).

while we are at this topic, i like a pointer on copying/moving data (movie) from DVD-RW to DVD-R by using my mac.

the movie is on DVD-RW, playable on a regular DVD player, but the mac will not recognise/read the disc.

this DVD-RW is made on my mac using toast 6.

much appreciated.

If the disk mounts (but isn't readable with Apple DVD Player), try VLC.

If it doesn't even mount, if toast could make the disk, I imagine toast can read it and either duplicate it or make a mountable image.

librarian:

I don't know exactly how toast works on multiples as I've only done one copy at a time. But if toast is re-copying the data everytime then try this.
1. Create a folder on the desktop, HOME_MOVIES or whatever the guy wants his disc to be labeled. note: No spaces and all caps increases compatibility with older players
2. Open up the DVD in the finder. There should be two folders in there VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS copy both those to your hard-drive. (If there is anything else in there I'm not sure why it would be so post back here if there is and will try to figure it out) If there is no AUDIO_TS folder then create one in HOME_MOVIES.
on a side note: the lack of a AUDIO_TS folder might render playing in commercial DVD players less successful, hence your problem with iMatts method (I think)
3. Now open up toast, and select data on the top menu and on the side bar under advanced select DVD-ROM (UDF)
4. Drag and drop HOME_MOVIES to the toast menu, click all the arrows and look inside them for invisible files, .DS_Store is usually there and sometimes a desktop db file is in there too. DELETE them as they also cause issues with compatability.
5. Select # of copies (make sure your doing DAO (disk at once mode) buffer underrun prevention is on, and burn baby burn!

If anything comes up just post 'er up and will nail 'er down for ya

i found DVD-RW can be read by my new pb1.33 without problems, but not any other mac of mine. even they all run 10.3.6.
i think the older drives don't deal with DVD-RW well.

on my other G4, DVD-RW is recognised by the mac,but still unreadable. i can only get it erased using toast.
