Hi, folks -
Been experimenting with Linux for a few years. Have been curious about making back-ups of our commercial DVD's but never dove into it.
We have a modern laptop dual-booted with Vista and Ubuntu 8.04. I've installed several apps - ManDVD, Thoggen, dvd::rip, acidrip, DeVeDe, but finding it all quite confusing. End up with results that don't work for various reasons: only recorded the main title, language is French instead of English, director's commentary is laid over the soundtrack, finished disc won't run in Windows or stand-alone, etc.
The laptop's optical drive says "DL". I'm willing to pay the bucks for double-layer DVD's if that would simplify things. If the burner is capable, can a guy just go into Brasero and click on "Make a 1:1 copy"?
