I'm new to this forum and am a 60+ mac devotee. I am literally going crackers trying to copy some of my dvd collection. For the past 2-3 months I had read just about every forum entry concerning this subject and followed the tutorials religiously. I have an emac running 10.3.6 and have been using MacTheRipper (and DVDBackup) - DVD2oneX (and DVDRemaseter) - and Toast 6. All to no avail. The copied version lasts about 20-30 minutes, blurred pixels start appearing and soon afterwards the movie freezes when I try to play it on my DVD player ( Sony) The play OK on the emac, I am using fairly top quality DVDs and as I said I have tried many variations on the various tutorials in this forum. It's getting costly and I have heaps of coasters. Any advice please before my wife declares war.
