I have copied movies that I own before in the past, for movies on the go, and such. Just yesterday I was going to copy a new one, actually, one for the girlfriend, entitles 'The Notebook'. How I usually go about doing this is past the encryption with Mac the Ripper, and burn the DVD with Popcorn.

This is hte first time I have ever had any problems, so this being a new title makes me think that Hollywood has a new plan for people wanting to copy.

MactheRipper has a dialogue box saying "READ ERROR - CAN'T OPEN THE IFO", and I press okay, and it tries to read it anyway after that, and then another dialogue box comes and says" I/O ERROR - CAN'T READ DVD FILE STRUCTURE"

Any thoughts?

Have you tried a different app, such as Handbrake?

Yes, I did open up Handbrake, and it quit out.... again, which never has done that before.

Some other programs like DVDbackup require you to play a few seconds of the DVD in Apple's DVD player before it can rip. You may try to do that.

^^ One more quality post from the desk of Ebby. ^^

MacTheRipper can cut through that funky Sony stuff though. You would have to select some checkboxes though to get a successful rip.

I know I couldn't backup the new Charlie and Chocolate Factory.

This thread is bordering on piracy. I think it's a worthwhile discussion, but I doubt it'll be open much longer. That said, I've never had trouble with DVD Backup after playing the disc for a couple of seconds. I have heard that it won't work on some newer movies, so maybe that's what's going on.

If it's not red and showing substantial musculature, you're wearing it wrong.

I'd agree with that. I suggest we need to be a little more careful about how we frame these discussions.
