Guys I'm new to linux and am after a good dvd burner that doesn't give error messages all the time I'd hop back into windows and use nero or dvd decrypter but windows is so unstable now that it barely operates currently I've tried brassero and kb3 both don't seem to want to copy these dvds

have you installed the correct codecs?

open synaptic and install ubuntu-restricted-extras

What kind of DVD's are you trying to make copies?

John Hale

So I open synaptic package manager and where to I find that option?

In the Search field. Type in the name of the package you want to install. Then click the package to install it.

Otherwise, close synaptic and install it from a terminal with apt-get.


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
However, I don't think making copies of DVD's have anything to do with codecs.

follow the instructions in this link:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu

and then you should be able to use k9copy to rip dvd's (of course, only to make backups of dvd's you have bought legally), and k3b to burn dvds.

could you copy/paste the error messages into this thread please, someone cleverer than me will see them and possibly work out what's causing you grief!

and baybe start brasero from the terminal (just type its name into the terminal) to see if that encourages it ti give you an error message?

afterall, it cant hurt.... right?

still get problem while reading retrying from sector ******* now why would it play fine there are no scratched or fingerprints on the disc it copied fine in windows using nero what other packages do you suggest I try? Do i need to try a head cleaning disc? I can't think of what else to do and I've promised a copy of these dvds to a friend as I had no previous copying problems.

This is typical of the error I get I've read manufacturers use blank sectors as a copy protection scheme?

dvd::rip is a pretty nice program I use to rip titles from my DVD. I also have a DVD9 which I wanted to convert to an ordinary DVD5 (4.7GB). I used DVD95 converter for this.

John

Some discs don't play well with some manufacturers recorders can be a bit of a lottery. Once you find a make that works well with yr burner best to stick with that make.

Bailbath it's not a writing error it's a reading error. Melrokz I managed to install dvd:rip how do I copy with it?
