    I've used MacTheRipper to back-up a DVD. What I end up with are 2 folders named Video_ts
    and Audio_ts. When trying to burn using Toast 7, it won't work b/c the files are huge. How can I shrink them to burn using Toast?

    I'm not really familiar with Mac's but there is an app called Handbrake that is a compression tool...it might do what you want to do, but I'm not certain.

    I believe DVD2one has a mac version, can compress a DVD-9 to a DVD-5. Fairly decent quality as well.

    ffmpegX (the most complete application, but a little difficult to use at first)
