What you need: Pavtube DVD Ripper for Mac, Pavtube DVD Creator for Mac, DVD writer, blank disc (DVD-5/DVD-9)

If you have at hand a great number of DVD movie collections, there's good chance that you wanna backup DVD movies to blank DVD discs so as to still take the copy out even if the original disc is broken or out of use. What frustrated is that copyright protection prevents DVD burning apps from copying the DVD movies. That's where DVD Ripper come in – by cracking CSS+ and region code restriction it turns commercial DVDs into fair-use movies.

Tip: DVDs have a number of copy prevention mechanisms. When you rip the DVD, you strip off those mechanisms but copy the rest of the video unadulterated. This means that the ripped DVD will take up as much space as the files on the DVD itself.

Once the process complete, you can click "Open" to find the free-region VIDEO_TS folder, which contains VOB streams, as well as IFO and BUP files. You can easily import the copied VIDEO_TS folder to Pavtube DVD Creator for Mac and make a duplicate copy.
