    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    I can't get k9copy running (beta 1.1.0)

    DVD Copy won't work, it says "dvdauthor error" after doing
    libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.5 for DVD access

    ---------

    To make an mpg4 seems to work, but there is no file produced.

    When I run k9copy from terminal I get:

    Code:
    libdvdnav: Unable to find map file '/home/abcdefg/.dvdnav/CATCH_ME_IF_YOU_CAN.map'
    
    libdvdnav: DVD disk reports itself with Region mask 0x00f50000. Regions: 2 4

    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    Installation was pretty straightforward, nice interface, seems to be running okay. I'll get back to you when I finish, but everything looks great so far!

    So anyway, the real reason I wanted to post, other than being a jabberjaw, is that I noticed that problem with an extracted directory from an iso being larger than a target disk. I suppose there's a logical explanation... that's probably why I have no idea why it does that.

    Thanks for the wiki/guide!!!

    My hard drive started clicking, so I loaded up on a new one, and now the wiki you like to won't load up, and k9copy.sourceforge.net won't either.

    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    I finally have k9copy working (very nicely). There are several issues to watch out for:

    1. make sure that you have taken care of all dependencies. If you download a recent .deb from a site such as www.thepiratecove.org and install it with sudo dpkg -i <debname>.deb, there is no dependency checking.
    2. ensure that the "output" directory under |Configure|DVD has at least twice as much free space as the total size of the titles you are trying to back up. Calling this directory an "output" directory is not a happy choice; it would have been more apt to call it a "scratch" directory or "working files" or, God forbid, "t(e)mp.
    3. If the partition with /tmp does not have > 10GB free (mine doesn't), do not succumb to the temptation of using a FAT32 "transfer" partition. Remember the infamous 2GB file size limit.

    k9copy is simple and easy to use and produces excellent results once it is properly installed and configured

    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    I'm getting an error that says

    dvdauthor error

    Why?

    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    BLTicklemonster,
    Because I am an experienced user rather than a code monkey, I might have the explanation wrong, but it appears to work for me. Your mileage may vary.

    After installing an application manually (this includes dpkg -i ... ), it has been my experience that the new application sometimes has trouble "finding" its dependencies. Running (as root) updatedb solves the problem.

    This happened to me when I installed the k9copy 1.1 beta into Dapper. I got the same dvdauthor error as you and ran updatedb after which k9copy worked exactly as advertised.

    Hope this helps
    Bruce

    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    Thanks. It's apparent that you're more of a monkey than I am, though. I have no idea how to implement what you suggest, unless it's to bring up terminal and ... um... could you draw this ape a picture?


    *edit:

    Oh, sudo updatedb

    Okay, it's working! Thanks a ton! Now what would a person use to shrink that puppy down to 4 gig so I can "archive" it?

    *edit

    No wait, it looks like it's already doing that. Titleset 1 is 4.7 gig. Huh.
