Saving Dvd's To Hard Drive
Posted 27 March 2012 - 12:09 AM
Can someone please explain how to copy my DVD's straight onto an external hard drive. I am starting to lose my patience as i am still learning how to drive a new operating system along with new software.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

When the disc image is done it can be played with DVD Player by doing the following: Control-click (or right-click) on the icon for the resulting .toast disc image file and choose "Mount It" from the popup menu that appears. By the way, don't have a video DVD disc in your Mac at this time or DVD Player will load it instead of the mounted disc image. DVD Player should automatically see the mounted disc image as if a DVD disc was inserted. If not you can select it by choosing Open DVD Media from the DVD Player File menu.
You have other options. For instance you can drag the VIDEO_TS folder from the DVD to your Mac's hard drive and put it in a folder that you name with the name of your DVD. You then use the Open DVD Media command from DVD Player's File menu to access the contents of that VIDEO_TS folder. Or you can have Toast convert the videos to computer-playable h.264 MPEG 4 files by using the Toast Convert window to save in the Apple TV format.
