Been sitting here for awhile trying to get one of my dvd's backed up to my hard drive and have no success. Been reading around and tried numerous programs and have had the most success with k9copy, but when I go to actually convert the DVD it never progresses. Saw a few posts about not having the right codecs and I believe I have gotten all but libdvdcss2 which I can't seem to install correctly.

Any suggestions on a program? I am sure this DVD is encrypted and this is why I am having issues.

Thanks. :)

Have you set up the medibuntu repositories:

Alright, restarted the system for safe measure and it appears to be working. Turns out the now there is a problem converting the sound to mp3, anyone know that codec? k9copy didn't give me the required codec needed. Thanks for the help.

sudo apt-get install lame


Should give you mp3 playback functionality, which might be the cause if you don't have it already, which seems to be the case.

make sure you also have the codecs metapackage:


sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

I had the restricted drivers installed as well. Loooked around the list of codecs on k9copy and found mp3 (lame) as an option vice mp3 and this worked. I am able to rip now!

Thanks for the help :guitar:
