How do I make a DVD ISO image?


Is there a tool, command or utility in Fedora 3 or 4 that allows me to make an iso image of a DVD?

I figure there is a different one for DVD-Video.?. Possibly one with DeCSS? or are those all written for Windows (a program like DVD Decrypter)

I just want to have my DVD collection available to me on my HD. Much easier than takeing them all with me all the time. Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

I personally don't create iso's of my dvd's but rather rip them using acidrip. I can rip just the movie itself, no need for all the other junk when viewing a regular dvd. I can also get the actual size under a gigabyte usually and not lose too much quality for viewing on my PC so I don't waste so much space with the full blown dvd size which can be up to 5 GB or so..

Does acid rip compress/encode the DVD files?

What about making ISO's of a DVD Data Disc?

Hi,

to backup the whole DVD:


dvdbackup -F -i /dev/dvd -o /my/dvd/backup/dir/
( it is only valid for DVDs with movies - not for a DVD with data)

. the previous command will generate a DVD structure in your hard disk drive. (VOB, BUP and IFO files).
to see a movie, just rename the VOB files to MPEG extension.

movie.VOB -> movie.mpeg

but to save space in your hard disk, it is better to compress the movie.
So, you should use "acidrip" or "dvd::rip" to rip and compress the movie.

as an alternative: rip the movie using dvdbackup, rename the VOB files (as explained before), and then use: "tovid" to compress it.

-------------------------------
to get dvdbackup:

to get tovid:

I have a similar question, but I'll clarify my request since the previous posts don't address:

Is there a tool/program for Linux to create an ISO image file on my HD of DVD video, without any compression without any video reencoding, without removing menus, but also removing any copy protection?

I'm using my personal collection of commercial DVDs under what I consider fair use, to archive them to HDD but also to watch them from HDD.
I don't care how large the image is, I want same quality/compresstion as the original disc.
I don't want VIDIO_TS folder or a collection of vob files, I want ISO image.
I don't want copy protection. I want an accurate archive with menus, but I want to play my files from a HDD using a commercial player which will not work with copy protection.
I don't want to run DVDFab with wine. I want a native linux solution.
I've tried using K9copy, but I've found that the slider bar sometimes does not have 1:1 file size ratio like DVDFab does.


Thanks!

You don't need to remove the copy protection to do that.

ogle ./image.iso

dd should work for that purpose. Or just mount the image and copy the directory structure and use ogle /path/. Or xine. But most players don't really manage dvd menus that well. ogle is specifically designed for that functionality. xine has it to a limited extent as well. dvdauthor and a few other utilities to create such content. And a few gui front ends in that regard. But as long as you have the libdvdcss thing you should be covered in terms of usable in a copy protected format. videolan.org

Nope. My movie player had trouble with the iso file. I did

dd if=/dev/dvd of=/home/thomas/Videos/clone.iso

The file appeared to save properly, it even played correctly using VLC player. So I copied it to my external HDD using Ubuntu's built in GUI file manager and tried it with the commercial movie player. The video was severely scrambled.

It appears that DD leaves in content scrambling. I have the latest libdvd and such (I can play DVD discs from this computer just fine).

Any other suggestions?
I want to:
-rip DVD movie to iso image
-iso image should have no addl compression
-iso image should work with commercial player that expects no copy protection (its a WDTV device).

Thanks,

Just to clarify, the .iso image still has the CSS elements. If your player doesn't handle CSS, of course you'll have issues. You can remove the CSS elements. But that will probably involve re-encoding the media. (and breaking the law depending on where you live). It also helps if you have a recent version of the CSS decoding software. My Avril Lavigne DVD only plays with a version about two years AFTER I bought that DVD.
