Hey, my wife just got a MacBook and it has iDVD which I mainly wanted. I've been wanting to copy/rip my already existing DVD's that I've bought to have copies incase something happens to the original and so I don't have to let people borrow the original.

Last night I tried inserting one of my DVD's and opened up iDVD but I could not figure out how to copy or rip the DVD onto the Mac so I could burn a new copy.

Is it even possible to burn/rip DVD's with iDVD and if so can anybody walk me through how to do it?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Not with iDVD it's a DVD-burning program !

    Copyright laws differ from country to country. Hence discussion can be illegal eg. Germany.

    as Bengt allready told you:
    iDVD is part of iLife, a 'disk creator' for your self-made homevideo..

    and discussing ripping (=in terms of breaking DRM, .. converting as issue is allowed..) is a violation of §2.8.2. of the TermsOfUse of this baord..

    .... Do not submit software or descriptions of processes that break or otherwise ‘work around’ digital rights management software or hardware. This includes conversations about ‘ripping’ DVDs or working around FairPlay software used on the iTunes Store.
