Hey folks, this is my first post and I am most definitely a newb so please bare with me. I am a part of a football coaching website where we constantly burn and trade DVDs with game film, coaching clinics, lessons etc etc. I am trying to build up my own collection of video and in doing so need to learn how to burn DVDs. Now i know the first thing i need is Mac the ripper, which i have. Oh yeah, my machine is a iBook G4 with a 1.33GHZ PowerPC G4 Processor with a 256 mb built in memory.
My question now, how can I take what MTR has given me and turn it into a 2nd copy of my original DVD? i've been around in circles on the internet the past few days and am even more lost then when i started. will i have to drop hundreds of dollars to do this?
thanks in advance

"Copy of the original DVD"? >>> Apple's Disk Utility will do it all for you. Use that app to create the image file (the .dmg) and then select that image file (which will now be in the left-hand list in the Disk Utility window) and click the Burn button. You'll be prompted to insert a blank disc; do so and click the burn button in the dialog. Done.
so if i use DVD Imager, i can then simply use the Disk Utility burner on my hard drive?
what does DVD imager do?
what are my exact steps there (I'm sorry, don't know 100% what you're talking about)??
here's an Update: i downloaded DVD imager and created the .img file, mounted it and burned it onto a DVD with the disk utility.
i then re-inserted the DVD to test if it worked, and DVD Player automatically opened so i thought YES IT WORKED. But then to test it, I put it in my PS2 and it couldn't even read it. Did i just make a DVD that only works on a computer?
A far easier solution and steps.
1. Rip the Original DVDs with Mac The Ripper.
2. Go buy Toast Titanium ( v.8 or higher)
3. Take the output from MTR on your HD, and
Open Toast. Select the Data selection, select DVD-ROM (UDF).
Drag and drop the output from MTR into the Toast Window.
4. Insert a Blank DVD, click the green burn button in Toast.
Toast then will burn you a compliant DVD that plays in anything.
can't get any easier.
If you're talking home-brew DVD's, you don't need MTR. It is only
for commercial copy protected discs.
You can copy the discs via Disk Utility if you do it right: new image
from disc, "CD/DVD master" option. Then burning from the image
will get you a byte-for-byte copy of the original.
Or you can drag the DVD's video_ts folder to a folder on your HD.
Get an old copy of Toast or PopCorn (I have a copy of Popcorn 1
that is gathering dust) and burn to DVD-R that way.Al Bloom

If your not sure you can check here what revision yours is at the link below.
Version 9 & 10 are the most common PS2's around and it will play either - or + format discs just fine.
So, apparently, media compatibility depends on the particular version of PS2, as well as media type, phase of the moon, cosmic ray flux, and current interest rates.
Best of luck to you!
