Copy DVD movie, which application?


I run Ubuntu 9.10 x64. My Burner is a Light-On DVDRW LH-20A1P.
My RAM is a GB. K3b gives me an error, growisofs = 5.20 is needed to
write Double Layer DVD+R. Brasero, after a long wait gives me
a different error, I close it and Brasero quits. I even tried Gnomebaker,
which fades away when I try to burn.

Any ideas on this?

Thanks

Thanks very much for this idea.

Yikes! an odd Error

When installing Handbrake, I receive an error, "same version already installed." I'll have to figure out how to find it.....

If you cannot find a gui program for it, Handbrake is a command line tool also.

Started Handbrake...

Rather cryptic for a GUI, I have no experience ripping anything,
besides my clothes. I didn't use it. GnomeBaker ran this time, but failed giving me,":-( write failed: Input/output error." Nothing else was running at the time, outside of the Gnome desktop.

This was a Verbatim blank DVD+R DL that failed.

I've got a lot of reading to do for Handbrake to get the settings
correct. They need better Linux support.

BTW: I have no issues burning other media (music or data only).
KDE is great for this, but needs growofs?

SOS.....

GnomeBacker seems to start saving the images, but craps out
@ about 20%, same as Basero, and KD3. This appears to be an
issue with 9.10 AMD 64; maybe not the exact version, but
others appear to be having the same issue with this type
of project.

As of now, either wait for the newer patches or install another distro on a different partition. Hmm, Fedora is also packaged with Brasero; whatever the answer is, I do not wish to step backwards and install WinBlows for this, not worth the hassles.

Aye, yi, yi.......

I've always loved Ubuntu 64 since I first installed it several
years ago. I can't seem to copy/burn DVDs at this time; I'll need
this feature before the next release of Ubuntu.

I have a Dual Core Amd 64 with 1 GB RAM, this should not
be an issue. Per the forums, I am not the only one experiencing
Brasero issues. Today, Brasero did burn 1 download perfectly,
but I think I'll need to look at a KDE-based distro. Ubuntu 9.10 offers KDE, but I think I'll try Fedora or Knoppix/Debian next.

Wasting away Verbatim, made in Singapore, blank DVDs......

Not a Gamer.....

I just create office documents and surf for medical information, a Gig of RAM is sufficient for these tasks. Burning DVD movies is to get rid of
some of the "coasters" in my office area.

I'll download and try K9Copy, thanks......

K9 Copy Starts to Function, but...

At about 76%, all progress ceases, and I waited 10 more minutes for activity. This was my first time using K9 Copy.

The only question I have left is about the RAM requirements for this:

The DVDs range in size from 5.1 GB to about 6.0; is 1 GB RAM enough?
If not, how much is required? Should I need more, I'll purchase the max
for my mobo. All things else seem to function correctly. The smaller DVD
movie was copied using K3B, and it worked perfectly.

I've Googled this question, but the results don't seem to
say: "one needs X amount of RAM to copy an X sized DVD."

I only have 512mb and k9copy works just fine. If nothing else give it a bigger /tmp.

Thanks for the Info...

K3B was a bit buggy, so I removed it, only to reinstall after lunch.
I did the same with K9 Copy. I hope K9Copy finds both optical
drives when I reinstall it......

At least I have hope now with your telling me that you run it on
512 MB. I putzed with the KK9Copy settings to change the DVD size
to a few gigs......

If this doesn't work, I'll have to switch to a different
Linux flavor.......
