I have begun to backup my DVDs and Blu-rays to my Mac using a combination of MakeMKV and Handbrake. I've noticed that this doesn't actually make a backup of the discs, but just creates an mkv file for each chapter.

Is there a better way to backup my DVDs and Blu-rays? Maybe as an iso file?

To me this seems a better option in case I want to re-rip the video from the disc at a later date.

Use /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility to make a .cdr (iso) disk image from the DVDs.

Select the disk in the sidebar, then create a New Image from it.

If I have an external Blu-ray reader, would I be able to do the same with Blu-ray discs? –  purinkle Feb 25 '11 at 7:47
