Want to run RipIt4Me? Here's how...

*I don't know if this is the right forum to post this in, nothing else seemed to fit, so, if it isn't , Mods feel free to move or delete. A multimedia section is needed.

At least I hope so.

If you're one of the few who's distro runs RipIt4Me under Wine with no issues then count yourself lucky. There have been quite a few who have received the "Failed to Copy" and "No DVD" message when clicking either Wizard Mode or 1-Click Mode. Hopefully, that's a thing of the past.

I've tried this info on three different distros (Ubuntu Edgy...a debian based distro, Blag 59999.22224...a Fedora based distro, and VectorLinux 5.8 Standard Gold...a Slackware based distro) with the latest Wine version available and it worked every time.

First of all, follow this guide on how to set up Wine and install DVD Shrink, DVD Decrypter, RipIt4Me Installer, and mfc42.dll... found here:

Ok, after all that is up Text Editor (or what ever you call it in your distro) and type "Welcome to RipIt4Me". Now click save and title it as "RipIt4Me". Now right click in an open space (either in Desktop or /home/user) and select Create Folder and name that folder "TempIFOs" (it has to be named exactly that or it will not work!). Now move your RipIt4Me text file into the TempIFOs folder you just created. The last thing I want you to do is copy and paste this TempIFOs folder into /home/your-user-name/.wine/drive_c/windows/temp folder. And you're done.

No this is not a joke. It actually least for me...and hopefully for you. I discovered this bit of information quite by accident. It seems that TempIFOs folder needs to exist (at least for some distros), with a file inside of it...hence the RipIt4Me text file (shameless promotion of RipIt4Me on my part...Ha!), before RipIt4Me can detect the DVD properly. This could be due to a flaw in a given distro, a flaw in a given distro's Wine version, or RipIt4Me (at least with reference to Linux). Who knows...who cares...but this fixed it for me.

Have a good day, and good luck.

Instead of using my long, drawn out method for creating and moving the TempIFOs folder just open up Terminal then copy and paste this bit of code into it:

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/temp && mkdir TempIFOs && echo "Welcome to RipIt4Me" > TempIFOs/RipIt4Me

Works like a charm. Thanks to an Ubuntu Forum member for pointing this out to me.

Have a good day. .

Just a heads up for those using RipIt4Me under Wine...

A new version of RipIt4Me is out ( but it requires the addition of msvcp60.dll into Wine's hidden system32 folder before RipIt4Me will even open up. Here is a link to it...

You can also find msvcp60.dll in Miss Marple's HowTo linked in my first post in this thread.

Have a good day.

Nice howto - a better place for it is in the designated Tutorials area. If you tidy it up (merge in your later posts) and repost it there, I can guarantee it will be approved and included.
