copy dvd


I have a "Learning English" dvd which comes with the book we are using. I want to copy it to my laptop. I tried just running it onto my hd. I get an error. I checked permissions, they were 'List files only' I cannot change this. I tried.

How do I get the dvd on my hd?

They copy protect it so you can't easily copy it I'd assume.

It would help if you tell us which error you actually get when trying to copy the DVD. Also, is this a data DVD or a video DVD.

you ? might ? be able to use "dd" to copy the disk to a iso and then mount it ???

maybe ???

but it also might be a disk that is using Microsoft *.exe programs and using flash or dot net( c#) and using Internet explorer

This is a video dvd which comes with a book for learners of English. It's about 55 minutes in all.
There are 2 problems actually.

1) Fedora 20 cannot play the dvd. I start it with vlc, I get an error /run/media/pedro/ICON_LEVEL3/VIDEO_TS.VOB

Permission denied.

2) I can't copy it to a directory: Permission denied. I cannot change the permissions.

About 1). I can play the dvd using Ubuntu 12.04 and vlc. To solve the problem with Fed 20, I made myself a member of groups cdrom and video, but that has not helped. I still can't play it in Fed 20, which is a bit weird. I do not have the permission. I am the only user on my laptop.

About 2) I thought if I copied it to the hd, I would not need to carry the dvd around with me. So I need to rip the dvd I suppose, if I want it on the hd. What software would you recommend?

You can try ripping the DVD to mp4 or mkv with Handbrake

You'll find the .deb here http://handbrake.fr/


Good luck

Pedroski, dd will make an .iso of that dvd that you can use for anything you want.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ommand-362506/
When you use dd, look at your command 6 or 7 times before you press enter. There is no forgiveness. You can overwrite something.

If it's a video DVD, and you can play it, then you can dump the .vob from the DVD to a file on your HD. DVD's usually are mpeg2 video and ac3 audio. So you'll have a mpeg2 video file. You can reencode that to whatever you want.
If you can't play it look at libdvdcss, you'll need it for encrypted DVD's

There is a little tool lsdvd that will show you the titles on the disk with their length on the disk.

You can dump the title that you choose with several tools like vobdump or mplayer.
Code:
mplayer dvd://2 -dumpstream -dumpfile output.vob
Now if it's something like a video tutor with stone in the name, then you'll need the whole disk. It has images, sound files, text files etc. Mount the DVD to a directory and look at it and you'll see. You can make an .iso of that disk to HD. Then mount that .iso loopback and run the executable like you would from the DVD. If you are using wine then you'll need to configure your optical device in it. You may need to make the .iso your optical device in wine config.

I've made an .iso from a disk like that and I can play the .exe with wine out of the .iso mounted loopback.

Probably getting close to violating LQ TOSS here. So I'll add that only DVD's that you have legal right to should be copied.

Also, VLC can capture and then output to many formats: e.g: http://www.wikihow.com/Rip-DVDs-with-VLC, that way if it's a 4GB-DVD you can slim it down to usually under a GB signal video file. Unless you need\want the DVDs menu?

did you install libdvdcss on fedora 20 ?
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...html#libdvdcss
and codecs
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...l#binarycodecs

and vlc through RPMFusion
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...a-f19.html#vlc

mind you ATrpm really needs to have yum-priorities installed and configured

I love putting my DVDs as ISOs or VIDEO_TS in a folder then opining that folder with VLC and clicking next or shuffle goes through the main title screens so cool.
