I am trying to make a back-up copy of a DATA DVD.

This is a Knoppix LiveDVD.

Under Ubuntu 8.04.2 I ran brasero

and got this error

impossible to find a format for the temporary image.

see attached screen-shot.

i have been using this install since April-08, and it plays music, encrypted DVD movies, burns iso images... all run fine...

medibuntu restricted extras win32codecs, all installed.

Can you create an iso of the dvd, and then burn it?


sudo dd if=/dev/scd0 of=image.iso
