I'm trying to copy DVD's with Mac The Ripper. When I try to watch the DVD on my TV I get a disc error message. I think I need something like DVDshrink for a Mac. Are there any Mac users that can point me in the right direction? Looking for free software.

Also, what program do you use, to play Flac on the Mac?

I'm running Mac OS 10 Tiger.

Thanks peachfuzz6, I'll give it a try. Everything for the Mac is expensive. very little free stuff.

The bad sectors might be a part of the encryption built in. I ran into that same problem when trying to back up my copywritten DVD's.
DVDdecrypter, or DVDfabdecrypter work well on the PC. Alas my PC is in for repairs.

Sorry for the late response.

If you'd like to make copy of DVD, following is the one way.

1. Use "Mac The Ripper" to decrypt Css with copy VIDEO_TS folder.
2. After copy made, check the copy on HDD by DVDPlayer with file menu "Open VIDEO_TS folder".
3. As you know Mac is UNIX machine, so you can make ISO image (DVD disc image) by "mkisofs" command.
4. "mkisofs" is not attached with OS, so you have to download from somewhere like

http://www.helios.de/news/news07/mkisofs.phtml

5. I've never used GUI for this command so I can only explain about how to use this command on terminal window.
6. If you downloaded this program, move it to /usr/bin/ directory, by using Finder with menu "move" > "move to folder" and put /usr/bin into popup window.
7. Or, double click "Terminal" application where is found at Application > Utility folder and do as follows.

mv Desktop/mkisofs /usr/bin

8. After mkisofs has moved to /usr/bin folder, do as follows to make disc image.
I assume as VIDEO_TS folder is made under DVD folder on Desktop.

cd Desktop/DVD
mkisofs -f -dvd-video -udf -V DVD_VIDEO -o DVD_VIDEO.img DVD/

You are able to change file name DVD_VIDEO.img to any name you like.

9. Burn DVD with using Disk Utility. Please refer to following URL to help you more.

I hope this will be some help to you.

I just saw this. Thank you for the awesome reply. I mostly use the Mac to get on-line. So I have a lot to learn. I'll give it a try.

I was looking for a way to to make an ISO image. I didn't know about the mkisofs command.

Thanks again brother.
