Post How can I write protected DVD using Linux?


Hello.
I have a DVD that protected by a Lock and want to write it, I used "K3b" and "dd" but these tools just copy 150MB of 2GB and finished with error :

$ dd if=/dev/sr0 of=/home/jason/dvd.iso
dd: reading `/dev/sr0': Input/output error
205288+0 records in
205288+0 records out
105107456 bytes (105 MB) copied, 63.9694 s, 1.6 MB/s

I used this tool too :

$ cdrdao read-cd --read-raw --datafile dvd.bin --device /dev/sr0 --driver generic-mmc-raw dvd.toc
Cdrdao version 1.2.3 - (C) Andreas Mueller <andreas@daneb.de>
ERROR: Unable to open SCSI device /dev/sr0: Device or resource busy.
ERROR: Please use option '--device {[proto:]bus,id,lun}|device', e.g. --device 0,6,0, --device ATA:0,0,0 or --device /dev/cdrom
ERROR: Cannot setup device /dev/sr0.


any idea?

We need to know something about this DVD?

What type is it i.e DVD-R, DVD-RW or maybe DVD-RAM? Did you originally create the disk? If so on what system i.e windows or linux? Discs that are finalized can not be written to again unless you are using RWs which can be erased.

Bad sectors is a feature of copy protection. You probably can overcome it, but you need to get creative, maybe ddrescue can be configured to accept bad sectors. In any case, you need those bad sectors on your copy, otherwise it won't work.

if you want to rewrite to a dvd-rw
just "format" it in k3b

mind you k3b will warn you this is not needed and you might need a few tries

then you will have a blank dvd-rw


i run into this on making video dvd's on dvd-rw and reusing the disks

ddrescue should work, I've used it before, but it will take a LONG time. IMO windows has better software than Linux for DVD's with certain types of copy protection. If you have access to a windows machine then there is software that is designed to copy those types of discs. I am not 100% of the rules about naming them so just google "arccos protection copy" and you'll find the software you'll need.

My DVD is not Movie, It is a Data DVD. What is your "ddrescue" command?

ddrescue is a comprehensive program, you're going to have to read the manual or start googleing. It's not as simple as just one command. There are a lot of options. However this will help get you started https://sumofungus.wordpress.com/201...sing-ddrescue/

$ ddrescue -n -b 2048 /dev/sr0 out.iso


GNU ddrescue 1.16
Press Ctrl-C to interrupt
rescued: 2896 MB, errsize: 110 MB, current rate: 0 B/s
ipos: 105119 kB, errors: 1, average rate: 2264 kB/s
opos: 105119 kB, time since last successful read: 1.4 m
Finished

but I can't open ".iso" file

what do you mean you can't "open" the .iso file? You don't open ISO files. They are disc image files. You either burn them to a blank disc or you can mount them then you can view the contents. For instance you can mount an iso like so...

mkdir /tmp/iso

mount -t iso9660 -o loop <isoname>.iso /tmp/iso

Then you can go to /tmp/iso to view the contents.
