How do I copy DVDs on my Mac

I have a DVD which a friend made for me containing a media presentation of our grandchildren. I’d like to make some copies for family members but haven’t figured out how to do this on my Mac. Can you recommend a package?


To tell you the truth, I’m more of a PC man than an Apple user; I’ve only used a Macbook for a week and still haven’t figured out how to right-click on something (yeah I know, shift-click; that was a joke). Anyway,looking around I came across a package called Roxio Toast which looks like it may be able to do what you want.

Roxio Toast 10 is a package that has been available for the Mac for some time now and claime to have been the disc recording standard for the Mac for over 10 years. Here are some things it can do:

Toast 10 Titanium simplifies disc burning, DVD copying and video conversion. Edit, copy, burn and share your videos, movies, photos, music and more. New features include AVCHD support, internet audio capture, audiobook CD conversion, a video clip extractor, and a streaming Web video capture feature. Improved features let you watch recorded TiVo shows on your Internet connected PC or iPhone anywhere. Toast standbys include digitizing LP and tapes and copying dual layer DVDs onto affordable single layer discs.

You can get the package on sale from Buy.com for just under $60 (after rebate). Keep in mind that these sort of packages shouldn’t be used to copy copyrighted material; but if it’s just to copy family videos then that’s fine.
