    I am glad you got this working...but in the mean time the newest Sonly and Lionsgate are giving 2.6.6 a little trouble. The new beta will do them though so it is worth the donation. DVD2One2 should be updating soon as well to do these newest ones. The battle continues...

    Oh one more question kitty....I was reading on the new beta version and found this.....

    MacTheRipper 3.0 R14 - A Quick Overview

    Let's look at the most significant big change in MTR R-14, Main Feature Extraction in a little more detail than the above post, though I will caution everyone one, more time: DO NOT run an R-14 Main Feature Extraction Video_TS file through DVD2oneX (DTOX)! It's complete, ready to burn, as is in Main Feature Mode. It reconstructs the VOB's and Navigation Packs, eliminating all 0.00MB Cells and any other garbage, presenting the user with a perfect Movie Only backup.

    how do you burn it if you don't go through dvd2onex? sorry for this question, but getting ready to get the beta and didn't quite understand how I was going to burn that if I don't use dvd2one x with it......
    thanx!

    Unfortunately it looks like Toast 8 is the one that is burning most of these files. I think you can still burn a file using just the popcorn by roxio I don't think you need the full toast. I am still looking for a good freebie burner only option for mac that will handle the big new encryptions. I will let everyone know when I do.

    I can still get most things to work on my 2.6.6 with dtox but there are a few troublemakers coming.

    First of all thanks for everything Kitty. I just got Casino Royale and wanted to make a back up and I ran in to the same problems that i did trying to back up Open season and Stranger than Fiction.

    sjpierson if you want to burn it you don't have to use Toast 8. Just use
    dvdimager and then use your disk utility.

    also, something mactheripper users may be confused on, the option to disable is not "prescreen" but "pre-scan" I believe that is what the user may have been initally doing wrong

    I'm having problems using MTR (and Handbrake and MediaFork for that matter) on Casino Royale. I've downloaded MTR 2.6.6 and started through the check-list of instructions listed earlier but I get stuck shortly after MTR scans the DVD ... I get a "I/O Error! Can't read DVD file structure" message - and after clicking OK on that message and then clicking Mode I can do NOTHING in MTR; everything under the Disc/Mode buttons is grayed out and unavailable; this of course means that I can't choose Title Set Extraction.

    you have to go into mtr before you pop the dvd in... go to the top next to the apple logo under mactheripper and go under preferences... where it says pre-scan click on the arrows and change it to diabled, then it will stop scanning altogether... let me know if you have any more issues

    if you follow the instructions in this forum it will work. I had the same problem.

    And you should use
    MTR, DVD2onex, and disk utility

    handbrake takes too long and the other programs are much easier to use.

    Interesting thread and great work Kitty66. Does this method also work on other recent films that won't rip via conventional settings on MTR2.66, like the Da Vinci Code for example?

    I followed kitty66's instructions, but I have had no success using Mac the Ripper with new SONY (and some other) DVD's. I unchecked the extract DVD-ROM box in Preferences, then I loaded the disc. Mac the Ripper starts to read it, but once the Pop-Up that says that it can't read the file structure comes up, I click OK, and then it stops reading the disc and Mac the Ripper stops dead. Any more ideas or suggestions about this new back-up problem for mac users?
    I have MTR 2.6.6. Is there a newer version that works with these new DVD's or are there any other options? Thanks!

    I have copied every single new sony dvd following these instructions in this thread. What you need to do is uncheck the prescan before you put a dvd in the drive. You can only change the preferences before you put a dvd in your superdrive. Just disable the prescan and then follow the directions. Like i said before i used MTR 2.6.6, Dvdone2x for compressing and imaging. and burn with disk utility.
