I need a DVD ripper that isn't scared of scratches

I'm looking for a robust mac program to rip ISO images from DVDs. I have some discs that have minor scratches; while they play fine (with minor skips) in DVD Player, the ripping programs I have tried so far give me an error message and abort when they encounter these spots on the disc. I've tried both the disc image function in Disk Utility as well as Disco. Are there other (free) programs that will be less easily panicked?

Rip and Burn Multiple Movies to a DVD using New 0.9.4 Handbrake for Divx player?

Since Handbrake 0.9.4 seems to have gotten rid of the .avi/Xvid option, is there anyway to rip a DVD so it will play on a divx etc enabled player? If you have the time, I would appreciate a step by step breakdown. Much appreciated! (and thanks way back when for figuring out how to do this on the older Handbrake).

Best ripping and editing software choices

I need to copy a series of scenes from several commercial DVD's and then edit snippets into a single video (with narrations videos I make between the scenes). What software is best to get the actual rips and then what editing software can handle this best without requiring me to be a video editing professional? Is AnyDVD + CloneDVD+??? the answer? You are going to say I need to buy a Mac, aren't you?

Best way to rip movie video to 1 stream

I want to rip a movie from a DVD to its elementary streams (.ac3 & .m2v). I can do this using the Stream Processing\Demux option in DVD Decrypter, but because the video is spread across several VOBs, I end up with several video files. So - I then have to rejoin these video segments, which I'm using the Join command in DOS for. It works fine but I'm wondering if there's an easier way to do this? I'm open to Mac options too.

Schlock & Roll! Eddie Furlong is so cool! He is HERO!

I need a rather rare video tape copied to DVD or saved as a video file. I don't have the equipment to do it myself and the tape is out of print, only released in Japan, unlikely to ever be released on dvd, and still under copyright. It's official documentation of an American child actor's Japanese music career. It is my 'happy' tape because I always feel better after I watch it. What is the best way to get this copied? Bonus points if it's cheap or free and/or local to Charlotte, NC. [more inside]

Playable DVD backups?

When I make backups of DVDs I own (of course) on my powerbook using DVDBackup or DVDimager or MacTheRipper, the resulting video_ts folder is always 6-8 gigs in size, and blank DVDs are only 4.whatever gigs. What I've been doing is using handbrake to make about 4 gig MPG4s out of them and burning that to a DVD, but there must be a way (codec?) to make my DVD backups burnable to normal DVD-Rs, right? I don't want everything - just the main feature, and in the case of foreign films, the subtitles.
