As you know movies that come on DVD can easily become scratched and unreadable. That's why it's a good idea to make a backup copy of the disc for everyday use and preserve the original disc. When copying DVD movies, some commercial software programs will only copy the film itself and omit the menu structure and special features. But it is possible to copy the film along with all the special features and the original menus. And here I’d like to share the easy way to backup a DVD with original structures on Mac with the help of the best DVD copy for Mac.
