Hey Boxcutter, how do you deal with dual-layered discs and is there a OS X version of the ripper?
My PS2 at home is Messiah-modded, so it plays copied game-DVD's and copied video-DVD's. It basicly plays everything that is round and shiny. (even MP3-disks, with the mp3-player software loaded
The PS2 at my office isn't modded. It doesn't play copied Game-DVD's but it can play copied Video-DVD's.
I use an Apple Macintosh G4 / superdrive (pioneer) for DVD authoring / copying on apple DVD-R media. It works like a charm.
