Thanks for the help and coding. I found the script not working with vobcopy (i guess)
Here's the output:
mainstream@dopamine-pc:/media/DVDS$ lsdvd "hunter" | grep -v 00:00:[0-9][0-9] | cut -b 8-9 | grep [0-9][0-9] | while read title; do echo title = $title; vobcopy -n $title; done
libdvdread: Encrypted DVD support unavailable.

**  /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/README.css     **

**                                            **

Couldn't read enough bytes for title.

You need to install libdvdcss . The instructions are in /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/README.css. The instruction in this file will require you to run a script as root to download the libdvdcss package. Also, vobcopy is missing the path to the dvd drive.

Second, after installing libdvdcss run the script above without hunter. lsdvd by default checks the dvd drive first. *If the videos are in a dvd structured folder on the hard drive or an iso image then you pass that as an argument to lsdvd.

PS: I use VLC player to get the title numbers. Sure, it is not automated but at least I get the actual title(s) playing. Once I jot down the title(s) I want, I then use k9copy to make the custom dvd. To see the title playing in VLC, just click on PLayback > Title.

Using VLC and vobcopy
Use VLC to the get title(s) information and jot them down. Then do a for loop. For example, to rip titles 1, 3 and 6

for i in 1 3 6
vobcopy -i /dev/dvd -n ${i}.vob

Then rename the file(s) so you can identify them.

PPS: vobcopy does not make a dvd filesystem like k9copy does. You'll need a dvd authoring program to make a dvd filesystem from the title(s) you ripped.
