Hi, I’ve make copies of dvd’s before on windows, I don’t remember how it’s been awhile, but now I need to do so on linux as I’ve converted to just linux. I’ve tried vobcopy, and dvdbackup, sorta. I can’t get vobcopy to work right, and I can’t find any documentation on it. And I don’t even know how to install dvdbackup. I’ve been trying to figure out for about an hour and I figured I’d just post here to see what program people recommend before I spend all this time trying to get something to work that isn’t even what I should be using.
Welcome to the forum
I’m not sure that can work, but have you tryied to install [B]wine[/B] and use it to run dvd shrink?
that didn’t work at all for me, I get errors when trying to install it.
I saw a thread about K9Copy in the Copy DVD Movie section recently. Haven’t tried it out myself though.
DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink works well in Wine! Did you try and install it correctly ??? you need to add riched20, quartz and mfc42 dlls to your wine/fake_windows/Windows/System/ folder for it to work correctly!
And Cressida is correct you can also try K9Copy it also works well or you can use XDVDShrink
Hi Geno888: what Version of Wine are you using?
well it was early in the morning when I tried, so I didn’t wanna screw around with it to get it to work, but yeah I didn’t have any of those dll’s so I’m sure thats at least one problem. It does work as it’s listed as working fine on the winedb or w/e it’s called on the winhq site.
edit: btw, thanks for all the help and warm welcome everyone.
:o right now I don’t have wine installed. I suggested it because I was doing some searches and find that tool.
I need to do some more readings on linux systems
well wine is not even installed properly nor can I install it properly, I have no idea why. I can’t install k9copy, among other unrelated things, I’m having so many problems with linux right now sigh
Hang on in there and keep searching for solutions (on the forums for your distro etc.). K9 will be best suited for KDE I suspect, are you running this? Don’t know what the Gnome alternative is. Maybe you can try XDVDShrink also.
Here’s just two google hits for the wine/decrypter/shrink alternative:
… nero linux?
