Most of us will have experienced in having our favorite DVD being stuck in our DVD player and ruined our movies while we enjoy watching it with most relax condition. Or some of us may also have kids who will turn the DVDs into their new types of toys besides Barbe Dolls & Transformers. That will definitely cause the disaster of your favorites collected DVDs. So it is a good idea to make backups of your DVDs.
In order to do so, you need a freeware software called MacTheRipper to extract the contents of the disc to your hard drive, and iSkysoft DVD Creator for mac to burn the movie files onto a new DVD.
1. Region Setup
2. Fast-Forwards Allowed
Click the Mode button. You can select Main Feature Extraction if you want is whole movie or use one of the Title Extraction settings if you just want extract parts other than the main movie. For the second choice, you need to figure out what parts of the DVD you are selecting.
Click the Go button to start ripping your DVD. How long it takes depends on the amount of content on the DVD and the speed of your Mac (MacTheRipper isn't a Universal app, so Intel Macs don't get a speed boost). Once the rip is done, you'll have a folder full of files. You can then use the DVD Creator for Mac to burn Folader to a new disc or you can leave the files on your hard drive and use the DVD Player application to watch the movie (File > Open DVD Media, then select the folder with the files).
5. Drag and Drop into iTunes
If you want to upload your file into iTunes, navigate to where you saved the file. Drag and drop the file into iTunes, then connect your iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV, and SYNC. iTunes will transfer the file to your device. Or if the movie was converted for your Mac, just double-click the file to watch it.
Convert video files including AVI, MOV, MTS, TS, MOD, M4V, WMV, MKV, FLV, TOD, etc to DVD.
