    I use OSEx but lately it is pissing me off. I’ve heard of others like DVD Backup and DVD Extractor but have not heard feedback from them.

    If you can, I'd switch your Mac back to OS9.2. That's what I'm using just now along with DVD Extractor 0.9b and DVD Studio Pro 1.5 and everything seems to be sweet at the moment. The only problem I have is that I sometimes have to split movies over two discs, but it doesn't bother me at all. It's a good excuse to get the kettle on when switching discs. Another gem of an application is MPEG Append, I used to get problems now and then in DVD Studio Pro after extraction but all you do is drag the mv2 file over the MPEG Append icon and it fixes it. Don't ask me how it fixes it, it just does!! Then when you import the file into DVD SP it reads it fine with no errors! Yippee!!!!

    How did you go about splitting a movie to two disks? This is what I want to do as I don't want to reduce the quality of the movie by further compressing it.

    I just tried a test with Diva and the results were appalling. Worse than if I had transferred the movie to VHS.

    What software will split a movie to two disks? And are there any special tricks I should know in doing it?

    The best choice to go with if you´re a newbie is DVDBackup and DVD2One burning with Toast 5. It has never failed me.

    But those programs don't do copy protected DVDs, do they? like DVDExpress.

    Still trying to find out if the rumor of DVDExpress will be out for the Mac in 2004.

    DVDBackup renders your DVD copy region free and removes Macrovision as well as CSS encryption.

    However, there are some DVDs, of which the CSS encryption of the DVD menu cannot be decrypted (using DVDbackup 1.3), thus you can only copy the movie itself but not the menu structure. But this still is true for a minority of DVDs (in RC 2 region, at least).

    In the end, your assumption is wrong. DVDbackup CAN decrypt.

    TechTV had a segment several weeks ago where they announced 321 Studios will be releasing DVDExpress for Mac sometime early '04.
