    Vobcopy does not ripp the whole dvd (only first chapter)...

    Guys,

    I have Vobcopy installed on my Kubuntu pc and it works, except for the fact that it only ripps the first chapter of the dvd.

    I can browse all the chapters from Dolphin but every time I try to ripp this DVD it only does the first chapter. Is there a way to get it to see all of them?

    I did not see any option for that when I did a
    Code:
    vobcopy -h
    I am using version 1.1.0. Am I missing something?

    This is the command I am running:

    Code:
    vobcopy -i /dev/scd0 -o ~/DVDs/ -l
    This all is on a Kubuntu Jaunty machine. Thanks.

    Option -m gave me a mirror copy of the dvd, so I guess that will work.

    HMM, Looks like my problem might be the way my fstab is set up. It says CD Rom, but not DVD. When I use the

    vobcopy -i /dev/scd0 -o ~/DVDs/ -l

    It will only copy the first chapter because it thinks that the DVD is really a CD Rom. The question is, how can I change my Fstab file so that the system knows that I have two dvd drives installed and not Cdrom's?

    Can I simply change the text "CDRom" to DVD?



    My Fstab looks like:
    /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
    #
    /dev/scd1 /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

    Thanks for any help..

    there's nothing wrong with your fstab
    For vobcopy use the -m to mirror the whole disk or -n for the title only (where n is the title number

    By default vobcopy assumes the disk is in /media/cdrom0 and doesn't need a path specified. Otherwise you need to use -i /path/to/mounted/dvd
    For example -i /media/cdrom1

    My default command is
    vobcopy -v -m -F 16

    Though actually because I have 2 drives vobcopy launches from a script that's been made an auto run choice

    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    gnome-terminal -e "vobcopy -v -m -F 16" /media/*

    Edit:
    It's better if you use -i to specify the mount point, not the device. So as noted if it's /media/cdrom0 than no need to use -i, if it's media/cdrom1 than use the -i

    You only need the -l if your ripping a title only (-n) To one large .VOB

    Ex. based on your last comm. does the whole disk (-m) from your /dev/scd0 drive

    Code:
    vobcopy -m -o ~/DVDs/

    Mc4man,

    Thanks for your help. I was finally able to get it working but found something interesting. When I do a:

    Code:
    vobcopy -m -o ~/DVDs/
    Vobcopy will only write the first chapter of the DVD to the directory specified and ignore the -m command (mirror). I ended up having to put the -m switch at the end of the complete command in order to get it to work properly. I had to do it this way:

    Code:
    vobcopy -o ~/DVDs/ -m
    That worked as expected. Thanks again.

    That is odd that the placement of -m mattered, doesn't on 8.04, 8.10 (ubuntu

    Maybe a 9.04 or 9.04 kubuntu thing, though whatever works is obviously the best way.

    (if you run into structured protected titles drop me a line, there are some workarounds - (you'll start seeing a lot of 'had to skip's
