you either don't have a prerequisite for dvdbackup, or it's linked against a newer version of some library than what you have. Try to compile from source.

I haven't posted here for a while, and I am somewhat surprised that so many people still have the ASPI error. I have to confess that I haven't been using linux much lately because of World of Warcraft. I might try out some alternatives to dvdshrink (lxdvdrip?) and post their functionality compared to dvdshrink. One thing that I would like to say that is extremely important:

When changing the "win98" to "winxp" you need to remove the semicolon from the beginning of the line.

That's all I have to say right now, hopefully people have better luck with DVDShrink in the future because it's such a useful program.

knappster,

I don't know what to say...

At last the bloody thing works!

Thankfully I am not embarrassed being stupid about these things but that little semicolon was HUGE!

Cheers

Congrats, I thought maybe it could have been that miniscule thing. I just didn't want to call into question your intelligence (or awareness rather). It's a small detail, but it's important.

Can people who are successfully running DVDShrink in WINE post the version of WINE (and DVDShrink I suppose) that they are using, so that if people are having problems, they know which versions have had success.

I have:
Wine 20040716
DVD Shrink 3.2

I had a config file issue. At one point I installed a demo of crossover office. I later installed wine, and wine linked to the crossover office installation. Consequently my wine installation is - um - nonstandard shall we say. Turns out I was using the wrong config file and that is why I personally was having some trouble with DVD Shrink.

Found the problem, fixed it, and now DVD Shrink works wonderfully.

I am running a modified Mandrake 10 distro, with Wine 20050111 and the latest DVD Shrink.

Got it to work finally

I tried getting DVD Shrink and Wine to work on Slackware 10.1 with out much success. I got it to work to the point were you could remove that different Audio channels, Subtitles, etc. but whenever I would even just click on one of these it would crash. So last night I switched to my Laptop which is running Suse 9.2 Pro and tried to see if I could get it to work on there. No Problems what so ever and it was relatively simple.

1.) Went to http://www.winehq.org and downloaded the latest RPM for Wine. The link for that is
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/w...6.rpm?download

2.) Installed the wine RPM using the YaST installer.

3.) Acquired DVD Shrink from their website

4.) Extracted the Zip archive

5.) Right clicked on the dvdshrink32setup.exe, selected "Open With" when the dialog box opened, I typed "wine"

6.) After it finished installing I went to my ~/.wine/config file and changed it to the following:

[Version]
; Windows version to imitate (win95,win98,winme,nt351,nt40,win2k,winxp,win2k3,win20,win30,win31)
"Windows" = "winxp"
; DOS version to imitate
; "DOS" = "6.22"

I removed the semicolon from the beginning of the "Windows" = "winxp" line, I read somewhere that that makes a difference. I'm not really sure what difference it makes but hey, I'm still pretty new at this.

7.) When I was setting up DVD Shrink, I selected "Create a desktop icon", so after I finished editing the config file, I just clicked on the DVD Shrink Icon, selected "Open Disc" it analyzed it just fine, i was able to remove foreign languages and subtitles, then I clicked on "Backup" and 25min later it as finished.

8.) As I don't have a DVD Burner on my laptop I wasn't able to test it, but I did open K3b and set things up in there and it seemed to work just fine. I just wasn't able to burn it.

9.) The first disk that I tried was one of my backups which of course was unencrypted, as I am writing this I'm currently analyzing an encrypted disc to see how it works. I've heard that some people have gotten it to work with un-encrypted discs, but not with encrypted discs. Well, it just finished and it worked fine with both encrypted discs and encrypted discs.

Hopefully this will work for someone else. I've only used Linux for about 2-3 months off and on. I personally like it a lot more than "Winblows" the only thing seriously holding me back is the inability to get wine configured so I can play games at the LAN parties that we have about once a month here. Aside from games I now use Linux for my everyday computer use. I'm going to go see if I can get DVD Decrypter to work now.

the semicolons comment out the line. so, if the line has a semicolon in front of it, it gets ignored.

Hi,

I think I read a post from somebody having trouble with encrypted DVD's on Suse.
That might be caused by the Suse libdvdcss package, that lacks support for encrypted DVD's for legal reasons.
You can get the libdvdcss.rpm on rpm.pbone.net for many distro's:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3?stat...dcss&srodzaj=3

Hope that helps

i was getting the same error as plosiv (from the thread that started this one, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/133609 (sorry, i posted before i read the message about the thread being continued here)):

DVD Shrink encountered an error and cannot continue.
Failed to initialize ASPI device.

until i downloaded ForceAspi and copied frcASPI17.zip/WIN9X/WINASPI.DLL and frcASPI17.zip/WIN9X/WNASPI32.dll into ~/.wine/fake_windows/Windows/System. this fixed the problem.

i will post this on http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5&pagenumber=2 as well.

hope this helps someone out.

This thread is getting old but I hope somebody is still watching. I am getting the 'Failed to initialize ASPI device' error with wine & dvdshrink. I have tried copying the WINASPI dll files to fake_windows/system file but am still getting the error. Is there something more I have to do (add something to a registry perhaps?)

I didn't copy any dlls, just set the winxp option. To be specific, I added these two lines, and
didn't change anything else.

[AppDefaults\\dvdshrink.exe\\Version]
"Windows" = "winxp"

I had tried that earlier without success but will try it again. Wine was having trouble finding the DVD drive but I think I now have that solved so maybe it will work.
