Ripping DVD 5 (single sided holding 4.4gb) & DVD 10 (the double sided discs with 4.4gb per side is very easy with macintosh OS9, DVDextractor 0.9 & Roxio Toast. Just open the DVD extractor program, insert the DVD you want to copy & go to file menu & 'save image'. It takes about 30 minutes to save a disc image to your HD. Once its finished , double clicking the image will open it directly into Toast where you burn it to a DVD-R. I've done this countless times with only a few coasters. I use a 400hz iMac with around 30gb free hard disk space. However, I'm finding copying DVD 9 discs (single sided dual layer ) really tricky - any tips would be appreciated.
