I have some old home movies of mine that were copied years ago from a VCR tape to a DVD. It was done professionally where they put some music in the background of the video since it was old footage where there was no sound.

The problem is that they chose really horrible music and now that I have my Mac, I'd like to copy the DVD and put some different music onto it.

My question is how do I copy the DVD onto my computer? I see in some other posts that people have recommended Mac the Ripper (tried downloading but they may be having some server issues at the moment). BUT THEN, how do I extract the audio music so I can then insert my own? Would I just do this in iMovie where you "extract audio" and then delete it?

All help is greatly appreciated!

    MPEG Streamclip <> can extract the video from your DVDs. You can then use iMovie or QuickTime Player Pro to add new music, then use iDVD to make new DVDs.
