There are also GUI frontends available for dvdbackup.
dvdbackup is what I use - in a script to decrypt and duplicate the file hierarchy in a directory, then use genisoimage to create a single file for archives. Optionally, clean up the file hierarchy afterwards.

There used to be a media player named ogle that was good for dvds. Not sure where it went or renamed/forked to. Otherwise xine/totem does alright on .iso images. I tend to keep the iso's since there's extra stuff there like menus for navigation and all the language tracks.
I'm the same -- do a bit-by-bit rip then play with a DVD player though in my case that's VLC as Ogle and Okle sEemed to have died.
Storage is cheap, so I just copy it all.

Depends on the DVD reader. I've got only one (so far) that can't be read at all - the 2007 release of "The Last Unicorn". The problem is that the DVD is a blue tint...

I find that, for some reason, I have to open them in VLC first then dcfldd works fine. Well, apart from one of a box set of Generation Kill which won't rip with any of the tools I've tried.

It's not so much the dvd's as it is the hardware DRM in the dvd drive. Tech version of they don't make them like they used to.

I think you mean dvdbackup (at least, that was the app I was talking about) and dvdbackup has never had any problem ripping dvd's for me (encrypted or not). The only exception to that is when the dvd has been damaged in some way.

REPLY TO: EVERYONE

I believe I've not made it exactly clear as to what I'm wanting to accomplish. I DO NOT want to "burn" one DVD to another. I do NOT want to 'burn" any DVD!!! That I know how to do.

I want to make a reprint of certain DVD's so that I can format them to an AVI/HDRip/MKV/BRR file, then put them on a pendrive. I am familiar with Handbrake, VLC, WinX rippers, but those all have inherent problems within their programs. I do not want a 'ripper" that leaves watermarks. I want the program to be open source. I would prefer that the ripper have the ability to discriminate what particular "segments or episodes" of a DVD that I wish to record/copy. I did use a 'ripper" that did a good job but the exception is, it left it's watermark.(Amerisoft) Another ripper I used, did a good job, but took far too long to "rip". There has to be a better source!! (IMO)
P.S. i,e, KEITH HEDGER; I intend to mark the thread 'solved" when I, indeed, do get it solved to my satisfaction.
THANK YOU:
RICK

you've described handbrake pretty much. what type of problem do you have with handbrake.

***reading back through the thread, you are on windows. In that case, handbrake +vlc, as i think handbrake doesn't contain the libdvdcss libraries are windows, but it will use the version included with vlc.

I'm not sure I understand this whole discussion, was the DMCA amended?
https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussi...u-rays-564502/
If you can't rip a DVD on Windows it's probably because it's not legal?
Mind you, if you're using Windows what do MS suggest you use? After all, you paid them for the OS and their support, right?

Let me assure you, ripping your personal DVD's is NOT illegal. I'm not sure what MS "suggests" for I'm not too familiar with MSWin. And, in all fairness to everyone here, I do realize this is a Linux forum...not an MSWin. I just thought someone could give me some good advise on an OPEN-SOURCE DVD ripper. If anyone has used MSWin, then you know how fickle/adverse it can be to anything that did not originate within their O.S. and they're not hospitable (mostly) to open-source programs. I've posted this same 'thread" at an MSWin forum and am getting pretty much, the same confusion and adverse reactions I'm getting here. Just looking for a good, open-source DVD ripper and have not been satisfied with VLC, WinX, or Handbrake.

Thanks: Rick

Handbrake (the open-source edition) was, to me, extremely slow and didn't allow for scene/episode editing. In other words, I couldn't just pick out what I wanted to record/copy...I was left with the entire DVD.

Stay Sharp:
Rick

It's not exactly legal either though, is it? Hence my asking about the DMCA as even playing a DVD without paying a license fee for a decoder may be illegal under that act.
I suspect that's part of the reason not many free, easy to use DVD rippers exist. It's not open source but DVDShrink seems to have been around for a while but I've not idea how dodgy or not it is.


Edit: By the way, the reason I say "ask MS" is because one of the drawbacks of running Windows is there isn't a great deal of easily available open-source software like there is with Linux and even when you can find open source software it's not always possible to verify you're downloading a clean copy. So, sometimes, it may be safer to buy some software from a reputable company rather than use open source. That does bring me back to my original point though -- I'm not sure proprietary DVD rippers can be had from reputable companies because I'm fairly sure they're not legal to produce even if you live in a state where "fair use" clauses exist.

Yes, it's perfectly legal! If I don't sell, charge for replaying, press multiple copies for distribution, it is PERFECTLY LEGAL!!!!!(in the U.S.A.) End of that discussion Yes, MSWin makes it difficult, thus my inquiry here. Until I can get a new laptop, I'm stuck with MSWin7 and I hate it. LINUX user by choice, MSWin user by default.
