    You can't just copy it bc its encrypted. Read the tutorial by mediaguru on how to backup DVDs at the top of the forum. Step 1, decrypt; Step 2, compress (optional); Step 3, burn.

    Are you using MTR properly? You need to extract the dvd with MTR before you try to copy it to your desktop. MTR should recognize any dvd you put in your drive. Make sure you have the latest version. Also, check region codes, aarcos etc.

    YOU CAN'T copy the files in the finder and then try to decrypt. You MUST extract/decrypt with MTR/DVDBackup1.3 or whatever FROM the DVD!

    If MTR is not working right (I suspect user error though) then rebuild permissions.

    Check the guide at the top of the mac forum here too.
