This version does not create a "clone" or direct copy of a movie DVD, that is, it doesn't create a VIDEO_TS folder that can then be burned to a blank DVD and played in a DVD player. You have to go to their web page and buy the "advanced" edition for $40.

Worked well for me, once I figured out that I had to load the DVD first into the optical drive, THEN click on the "DVD Disk" button AFTER stopping Apple's DVD player which starts up automatically when you insert a DVD. Running OS 10.7.5 Lion.

DOESN'T WORK. iMac 3.06GHz 27", Mac OS X 10.6.8, internal DVD player.

Put in double-sided A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS. Reads discs, press "Start," progress screen appears for a few seconds, then disappears w/o ripping.

Put in single-sided KING ARTHUR, same thing happens.

Didn't try it on my external DVD burner ... what's the point if it doesn't work with the Apple internal drive?

Nice interface, just doesn't run.
