Linux aternative to Clone DVD, or DVD Shrink


Hello,

I'm looking for a software to copy / clone DVD's on Linux. I currently use DVD Shrink and Clone DVD on Windows, but i prefer to get rid of my Windows and just use Linux. Does Linux offer a program to burn DVD's?

Thanks in advance.

I rarely burn dvds but when I do I use dvdrip. I've never used DVD Shrink or any other windows dvd burners so I couldn't relate the two.

I should also plug acidrip which was written by acid_kewpie though I've never used it.

DVD Shrink works perfectly under Wine.

Eventhough i now have DVD Shrink running in Wine, it doesn't work.

When i use the Open Disk button and select my DVD Driver it responds with an:

DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue.
Failed to initialize ASPI device.
File not found

In my Terminal window i get the following line about 15 times:

fixme:aspi:SendASPI32Command SC_GET_DISK_INFO always return 'int13 unassociated disk'.


Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this or perhaps an indication on what i am doing wrong?

Thanx.

OK, try smartripper to rip the files, then dvdshrink to do the compression. Both actually work for me.

I've tried to do the 'Open Files' in DVDShrink but no luck. Also a weird error, so i believe my wine isn't working correctly.

The funny part is. First i had Windows and Linux. I tried DVD Shrink in wine and compressed a DVD. I then figured i wouldn't need Windows anymore, so i reinstalled Linux on the whole disk. And now it doesn't do wine anymore. Very weird.

I'll try to figured it out but anymore help would be appreciated.

you probably didn't configure wine correctly. in your ~/.wine/config file, there's sections where you have to define your drives. cd/dvd devices included.

example:
[Drive J]
"Path" = "/mnt/cdrom"
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Label" = "DVD"
"Filesystem" = "vfat"
; make sure that device is correct and has proper permissions !
"Device" = "/dev/cdrom"

[Drive R]
"Path" = "/mnt/cdrom1"
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Label" = "CD-RW"
"Filesystem" = "vfat"
; make sure that device is correct and has proper permissions !
"Device" = "/dev/cdrom1"

i try to make all my devices and parititions the same in wine as they are in windows, since i've got wine configured to use an existing windows install and not a fake windows install directory. don't know how you did wine, so that may not apply to you. but i'm fairly certain you need to finish the wine config.

I've been reading the Wine documents for a bit. There is a line about puting a 'nohide' in your FSTAB. If you do now, you might get an File not Found error. (the same i get) and i know haven't got my cdrom/dvd drive in my fstab.

Tobad i am at work and cannot test it.

As for the configuration example, i have it the same as you. Except i use "Filesystem" = "win95".

Why waste so much time trying to get a windows program to limp along in Linux? Especially when there are plenty of Linux-native programs that will do the same job?

AcidRip is a sweet little program that offers all the functionality of DVDshrink, and it gives you more flexibility in terms of compression/bitrate/etc. It was a little tricky to set up, because it depends on GTKperl (and I didn't have Gnome on my box) and mplayer/mencoder. But like Crashed_Again pointed out, it was written by acid_kewpie, so you can find lots of advice/answers here in the forum.

Check it out, it's definitely easier to set up than wine, and it's intended to run in Linux, so it'll be more stable. I finally gave up on trying to get wine to run anything other than solitaire and minesweeper (in fairness, I must say that it runs these extremely well).

Enjoy!

I've read the acidrip home page but it says that it is primarily focused on DVD to DIVX conversion. That is not what i want. I use DVD Shrink to compress the Video on a DVD and then burn it back to a DVD.

I've only glanced the acidrip page, so i might have missed it.

I've added the correct lines to the /etc/fstab file. But no luck, it keeps giving me the same errors.

Does anyone have any further ideas?

I've figured it out.

If the DVD is encrypted, it gives me the ASPI errors.
If it is unencrypted, it works perfectly.

Annoying.
