I'd like to backup a few DVDs to my MacBook. Just to make it clear, none of them are copyrighted (they are videos of my ballet performances taken using a Sony Handycam), so I don't think it's illegal to do this. I don't want the DVDs to be converted to .mpeg or .avi, I just want them to remain as VIDEO_TS folders. I've tried using MacTheRipper and DVDBackup. The ripping process is usually completed, though when I try to play the VIDEO_TS folders in Apple's DVD Player, they don't play or stop at a certain point. Sometimes, it seems like parts of the DVD are missing. What software should I use to get a playable rip? Is Roxio Popcorn worth it?
