Of course and, as stated in the first post, the only purpose is to watch a movie on the computer screen while I do some work...
Some of these movies are one-offs (the special edition of THX1138 - two CD's, or the aniversary edition of Tron) and I'm not about to share that...

But, it's not because I understand that, that it cannot be repetated enough:

Do no copy illegally, thanks

But...I run into encoded DVD's - so ripping that will be a challenge. And, hey, this is just a "wanna-have" and not something crucial. If it's not done in an easier manner, I'll just watch like everyone else...
Hey, I do that whenever I digi-rent a movie anyway...

As I am lead to believe it is of dubious legality just to run an unlicensed DVD player on linux, let alone actually play the disk.

...I dont get it, if the DVD (and the movie on it) is personal property, to be ripped to the hard drive for personal use/viewing only, where's the harm? Of course, this throws the thread in a completely different corner but, always a good idea to contemplate that open source is not analogous to illegallity...

Just the dime I want to drop in the chat...

Thor 2.0, that is commercial ($35 US) windows only software.

BTW, I've reported the post as adspam.

Dude, I have been having problems with turning my DVDs into ISOs too. I was very happy with k9copy but the thing is not longer working. In my OpenSUSE laptop k9copy crashes just before making the ISO.

In my desktop running Ubuntu 12.04 k9copy doesnt copy the sounds for some reason.

so I just dont know what to do anymore. The guy who developed k9copy said the DVD is an obsolete technology therefore he is done developing software for it and he will put his effor in something else.

Check out his blog http://k9copy.sourceforge.net/web/index.php/en/news

Sad, sad, sad

The technology may be old but it is not obsolete. They still produce DVDs.

I used to use a windows software in wine. Worked perfectly.

It all depends on use ( and that can be subjective )
for MY personal use
i will rip a dvd that I BOUGHT -- yes paid $$$ for
to remove the very annoying TWO psa's that are now in them ,along with the TLA warning about coping
-- the ones you can NOT FF through
--- these also make me MORE stringent on what i buy ( yes i am a SCROOGE now -- thank you MPAA -- i spend LESS now )
as in I BUY MUCH LESS than i used to
that and the some times very annoying dvd menus, the ones that force you to spend 30 sec BEFORE you can even pres "play"

but PERSONAL use might also get mixed up with illegal use ..........
so this is not a topic i would readily post a
1) step one
2) step two
3) and so on

Also, I like xvidenc/h264enc to rip.
