If anybody knows of any programs that will read an un-finalized RW disk, and rip it, I would be most grateful.

Mpeg Stream Clip wouldn't open this disk I have the first time I tried. I heard there was another Mac program out there that would rip DVDs similar to Mpeg Stream but I forgot the name of it.

Thanks for any pointers if anybody here knows.

Isn't it odd that we're in the year 2011.. VHS tapes can be read universally in all players no matter what with no finalization needed.. but DVD-RW or -R disks can't be read in any player if they're not finalized?

24, LOST, Prison Break, FRINGE, Supernatural, DEXTER, Breaking Bad, CHUCK, Flash Forward, HEROES...even SMALLVILLE in the latter seasons.. they've all ruined my movie going experience by being better than so many movies out today.

Try to read it on Windows for it's much more forgiving in this regard.
