    Question backing up dvds to .iso

    Hello I have been making a HTPC for about a month now and I have been backing up all of my dvds to .iso so I can play them in mythtv. I have run into a few issues and was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and can help.

    I am assuming both of my issues are caused by some sort of copy protection. I am using k9copy and with a few dvd it grinds to a halt and never finishes the backup. if I try to back it up with brasero I get and input/output error.

    Things I have tried different computer with different drive. Using windows and powerISO to make an image of the disc. Another disc of the exact same movie. All of these end with the same errors. I am currently trying dvdisaster to run but it is not looking good.

    This has to be a dvd encryption problem because using a different disc should have fixed the problem if it was a damaged disc.

    Did you run this script after installing libdvdread4?
    Code:
    /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

    No CLI program that I've tried (dd, dvdread, ddrescue) has a 100% rate in copying encrypted movie/TV DVDs. Brasero, OTOH, always works.

    Well by all means then, continue to use it.

    Re: backing up dvds to .iso

    Here is a list of DVDs that i have tried to backup that i have not got too work. ( in linux with brasero, dd, ddrescue, dvd95, or just copying the folders over)

    21
    cars 2
    pirates of the Caribbean on strange tides
    The Smurfs
    underworld evolution ( tried two different dvds )

    So out of the 150 or so dvds i have backup for my htpc so far 5 have not worked thats 96% success it is possible you just have not run into a disc like this.

    I have managed to copy all of these with a windows program called dvdfab which can just copy the folders over to disk. Then i run k9copy from a folder and not disc.

    sudo cat /dev/sr0 > /home/whatever/dvd.iso

    I get the same error with this as well input/output error



    The above is too much work especially since dvdfab is only a 30 day trial.
