Exclamation problem copying video cds


I have installed rhlinux9.0 on my pc and after logging in to root account i

have inserted a video cd(vcd) in to my dvdrom.and mounted as usual i

could see all the contents in the dvdrom like( vcd,mpegav etc.. )and then i

tried to copy the video cd in one of my vfat partition but iam not able to

copy the vcd in my vfat partition or in my root partition or in the disk .i have

tried changing my dvdrom by cdrom and also tried copying with many vcds

but iam getting the message like cannot copy read error(abort,skip etc.).My

you can use dd. "dd if=/dev/[your_drive] of=/free_space/cdrom.image"
if this gives errors too, try "readcd" (you can tell it to skip errors). you have to switch to the console for that and maybe need to be root if normal users don't have permissions for the drive.

finaly mount the downloaded image with
"mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /free_space/cdrom.image /mountpoint"
and now copy things you need.

read the manpages for dd, mount and ev. readcd.

Iīve tried this...

Yes, Iīve tried using "dd" command and it works, but itīs WAY TOO slow. The thing I donīt understand is why Windows can copy the file without any problem and linux detect these errors?

I found a work around....

I'm trying to copy ONLY the biggest file (the movie itself) but I get a "Read Error". I found a work around using "mplayer vcd://1 -dumpstream" or something like that: "vcd://1 for indicate mplayer to play a VCD" and "-dumpstream to save the flow of data into a file usually called dump.001 or something like that.... just change the extension and that's it.

But I don't like it that way 'cause linux should be able to copy the file without using any short cut. If Windows can then Linux can do it too.... AND BETTER!!!!

Thanks for all of you

Try "VCDImager"
It has a tool called "vcdxrip"
You simply mount the VCD, cd to the directory where you would like
to put the movie, then type vcdxrip , the resulting mpg should be
playable with any linux video player.

CdFS problem...

I tried using CDFS but I couldn't compile it :S.
Anyways, if you rip the movie using "mplayer -dumpstream" the generated file will be the same of the disk. It's like copying the file with the command "CP". So this file can be played by any video player for linux without the need of this particular program (mplayer).
I'm doing it this way and it works
But as I said before, I know LINUX can do better than this... It's just that I don't know how :S....
