Thanks to all the great advice on this forum. I'm not very good with my mac, but was able to successfully rip a movie onto the HD. Now I'm trying to use DVD2oneX and am having some problems. I've been trying to compress but the end result is an .img file that is 8+ GB. Why would this happen? I've tried it a couple times now and it has always given the same results. I noticed that on the DVD2oneX window, in the large field at the bottom, it shows a title "1" , with 28 chapters, 1 angle and a duration of 1:46:57. There's also a title "2" line below that, which is identical. Am I compressing two copies of the film? And if so, how can I not do that? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
