View Full Version : [ubuntu] Acidrip can't find DVD

December 7th, 2009, 04:42 PM
I'm trying to rip some DVD's so I don't have to lug them with me on a trip next week, but AcidRip can't find the DVD drive. I've tried
/dev/dvd (The default at startup) and
/dev/dvd/VIDEO_TS among others and it tells me that those locations don't exist. How do I get it to find the DVD? Am I just putting in the wrong locations and how do I find the right ones?

I recall a bug with some dvd rippers not accessing the correct device.
run acidrip in a terminal and see what error it gives.
if it says something like /dev/dvd not found, check that /dev/dvd exists...on my system I have a /dev/dvd1 but not a /dev/dvd I think it was this change that broke the rippers.

if this is the case you can create a temp symlink:

sudo ln -s /dev/dvd1 /dev/dvd
