making an ISO out of a DVD


i am trying to make an ISO out of my DVDs so i can keep them on my HD to play to my media box, instead of having to let the kids mess with them everytime they want to watch Nemo, or what ever.

I have tried the following and get these errors:

Code:
p4ssmahome:~# mkisofs -RJ -o hellraiser.iso /stuff/hellraiser
INFO:   ISO-8859-1 character encoding detected by locale settings.
        Assuming ISO-8859-1 encoded filenames on source filesystem,
        use -input-charset to override.

when i run cdrecord -scanbus i get the following:

so my DVD burner is there. K3B does not see the DVD burner sadly and states no video transcode, also no DVD burner to be selected... yes i am running as user for K3B, but i have used it to burn many CDs with no issues as user, did i just screw something up with the DVD burner?

First off, if you're talking about video DVDs (as in the reference to Nemo) you'll need to get a tool capable of 'ripping' video DVDs. k9copy is a good one.

Naturally, use only for backups and personal use, and make sure you comply with all applicable laws.

You can just use cat or dd to make an exact image of the DVD but then you're talking usually around 8GB of space whereas if you use something like acidrip (my pref) to rip it and encode to an MPEG-4 format you can have ample quality for around 1GB.

Might be worth thinking about

dd will not be able to read encrypted DVDs successfully.

was going to use dvdrip, but did not want to convert and lose any detail from the vob files.

if dd will not work with encrypted DVDs, any sujestions other then k9copy, i prefer k3b, but those 2 do not play nice on my system.

I think with dvdrip you could set it to just rip and not transcode the files.
