    I am using DVDBackup to backup my dvd's...my question is, if I don't want any useless stuff and just the movie, how do I know what files to remove. For example I've got .BUP, .VOB (Keep most of these because they are the rather large ones), and .IFO's. I will mess around until someone posts back, Thanks.

    There are two good ways to scale down your copy to movie only.

    1. Use mac the ripper to rip only the movie. If it is under 4.3GB then you can simply burn it with toast after that. If over 4.3GB you'll have to use dvd2onex or some kind of dvd shrinking program to reduce the file size. OR you can buy a dual layer dvd burner and pay over $20 each for dual layer dvd media.

    2. Take your ripped videots folder and run it through dvd2onex. Select "movie" and it will strip all the other crap and build you a working videots folder to burn in toast.
