Copy DVD

Question

I am getting really frustrated. I am trying to copy some DVDs that I've had a while and are getting really scratched up. But it keeps telling me it is encrypted. I am using a MacBook on 10.4. I bought this, maybe mistakenly, thinking I would be able to back up my DVD collection. Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

As you've seen, Popcorn can't copy an encrypted DVD and all commercial DVDs are encrypted to prevent copying. In at least the U.S. it is unlawful to break the copy protection even though it is legal to make a copies for personal use.

 

So doing what you want requires you to circumvent this Catch-22. You'll find more info at ripdifferent.com because we can't discuss unlawful practices in the Roxio forums.

First you need to get the program "MacTheRipper"

Run your DVD through this program...

Then take thee resulting file into Popcorn 3 and....bam.....you are good to go.....

Anymore details would be against the forums policy!!
