DVD::Rip and Burning to DVD


I am a complete newbie when it comes to backing up DVD's but am slowly learning a lot. I purchased a new Sony DRU-700A Dual Layer DVD+RW drive the other day and want backup a Video DVD to it.

I reckon I could do a complete copy of a Video DVD using a Dual layer disc but would rather use something like DVD::Rip which I like a lot.

Is there something simular to DVD::Rip that allows me to burn to DVD or is it just CD's

ALso is there any documentation for idiots about backing up Video DVD's to DVD+RW.

Thanks in advance

I got DVDShrink working under the latest version of Wine. I am still looking for a 100% native linux solution, but I've not found anything with the capabilities, quality, and ease of use like Shrink.

You could rip each title into a separate file in a directory on your hdd like this:
mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy -o /path/to/dvddir/<titleN.mpg> dvd://titleN

Then you could use e.g. mkdvd.pike (check out http://fredrik.hubbe.net/hacks/mkdvd.html) to reproduce the dvd and burn it onto a dvd:
mkdvd.pike --burn title1.mpg title2.mpg ... titleN.mpg

But its only a theory as I never did it myself; and maybe someone knows a better way.

Edit:
Maybe to create an iso from the dvd by k3b and burn it to an other dvd?

Since you have a dual layer burner, you don't have to worry about shrinking as long as you burn to a dual layer disk. You can use dvdbackup. Once installed, type:
Code:
dvdbackup -M -i /dev/dvd -o /my/dvd/backup/dir/
to backup the entire DVD. For most DVD's, this will result in larger than 4.3 GB worth of files. If it is less than that, you can use K3B to burn onto a single layer disc, if it is more, you can burn a double layer disc. Type "man dvdbackup" for more information.
