I worked around this problem by changing the CD/DVD entry in my wine config as follows:

[Drive M]
"Path" = "/mnt/cdrom"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "CD_as_HD"
"Filesystem" = "win95"
"Codepage" = "0"

In other words, tell wine to view your DVD mountpoint as a disk, not as a CD/DVD.

this worked for me also. i had to use mplayer to start playing an encrypted dvd to get it to read the disk. i had to mount the drive, then start mplayer, and pause it. then let dvdshrink read the disk. there's still a few variables i wasn't able to work out. sometimes it would work and sometimes not, on the same disk

Unhappy

That does not work for me, because DVDShrink does not offer this drive, while wine-config have "Type" = "hd" instead of "Type"="cdrom".

you do it under open files, not open disk.

Under open disk I do not see drives, while they are defined as "hd".

With open file the program closes immediately as before.

This works for me

dvdbackup -i /dev/dvd -M -o .
wine DVD\ Shrink\ 3.1.exe "z:\path\to\dvdbackup\SOME_DVD\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO"

z: is the wine drive assigned to the root of my linux filesystem.
When DVD Shrink comes up I have to resize the window (wider) to see everything.

when i try to reauthor, from the dvd, dvdshrink will not let me change compression settings, and it will not set them correctly itself. i haven't tried with the files ripped to the hard drive, but i doubt that would make a difference.

Thumbs up

Thank you, Chinesebob!


~/.wine/config:
[Drive X]
"Type" = "hd"
"Path" = "/home/path"
"Label" = "DVD on HD"
"FS" = "win95"

dvdbackup -M -i/dev/dvd -o/home/path

wine "DVD Shrink 3.1.exe" "X:\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO"

Choose "Backup" and generate an ISO-file. You can burn this ISO-Image.


Done!

It works. Thank you.

Aktaion; are you able to watch the DVD on a regular DVD player? I've tried DVD Shrink once, on Windows and it worked great, but it wouldn't play on a dvd player. The iSO image mounted on a virtual drive and played fine, but the dvd wouldn't once burned. I've been hunting for weeks for a solution to Copying my DVD's on Linux, I do so with each new DVD I purchase, and I've yet to find a simple solution via Linux.

Hi Larcen,


yes I can watch it on my DVD player.


You can try transcode + DVD Rip to make VCDs or SVCDs (don't use DivX/AVI; choose MPEG instead). This will also work.

Thanks for the swift response. I just downloaded DVD Shrink 3.1.7 so I'll try and install it, and give it a try on a dvd I got lying around, and see how it goes. Chances are, I'll be back once I run into problems.. *I usually do*..and finish reading this thread a few more times. lol

you are letting dvdshrink make the iso image for you, aren't you? if you just burn the files to a disk, it will only play in a apex or cyberhome type player.

That first, and only time I tried it on my Windows box, I used DVD Decrypter to rip the dvd, then used DVD Shrink to create the iSO, then used DVD Decrypter to write the DVD. Maybe I had a bad copy, I dunno. I'll give it a try on Linux tomorrow while I'm off work.

With my burner, cdrecord.prodvd seems to create a more compatible dvd
than growisofs. The thing about cdrecord.prodvd is it has a weird license,
where the free license limits recording speed to 2x.

cdrecord.prodvd -dao DVD.IMG

i've been using cdrecord-prodvd, and burning at 4x. maybe it's your drive that doesn't know your disks. i have some 2x disks that will only burn at 1x.
