I just installed the 9.04 AMD64 distro of Ubuntu. I am very pleased. The only thing I am having trouble with is Brasero. When I try to rip my dvds to the harddrive using Brasero I get the message in light gray text (I guess so it's not easily read) "please insert a disk that is not copy protected. such a disk cannot be copied without the proper plugins." So if anyone knows what these "proper plugins" may be please let me know.
Also: I have been looking around at other threads for a solution to this problem and am also willing to take advice on how to get K3B to rip encrypted dvds.
