Applications :: Finding A Program To Destroy Data On DVDs

Feb 7, 2011

What I want to do is force my DVD burner to use full writing power on the entire surface of a DVD. This should be able to invisibly damage the contained data, and should work on CDs, DVDs and BRDs too (in theory). I don't want to write data over it, so it's not a matter of having a RW disc or a R one. The result I want to obtain is simply an unreadable disc that does not look damaged. Do you know if there's a program able to ignore a disc being already full and perform this task?

SUSE / Novell :: Program To Completely Destroy All Data In Free Space On Hard Drive?

Aug 10, 2010

I dont want to wipe the whole drive, and i don't want to delete only particular files. I want to completely destroy all data in free space.I've found some articles about secure-delete package for linux that would allow erasing freespace with the command 'sfill,' but I can't find it in the repositories nor through google. This would be ideal but it seems maybe it's debian only.

Ubuntu :: Finding A Program To Store And Retrieve Data?

May 22, 2010

I am looking for a program to help me store, organise and retrieve information. The aim would be to keep notes from literature, concepts and ideas which i come across during my studies. It's always a hassle to retrieve this information when i have to write a paper for instance. So in fact what i need is a sort of wikipedia-like program where information is searchable and where perhaps hyperlinks could lead me from one word/note to another.

Ubuntu :: Raid 1: Does It Destroy Data?

Jul 4, 2011

my question is quite simple and at the same time should even sound weird for people that is used to use raids... but here we go! I have got 2 hard disks that do match in space. I'd like to use mdadm to create a raid 1, the mirror one. Since I don't want to format / erase / delete what's in my primary hard disk (/dev/sda, 3 partitions), how can I replicate its content into /dev/sdb and mirror it with the raid tool? Does something like this work?

- install madam
- fdisk /dev/sdb and replicate sda's partitions (using as filesystem "fd");
- sudo mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md0 --level=mirror --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1
- sudo mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md1 --level=mirror --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda2 /dev/sdb2
sudo mdadm --create --verbose /dev/md2 --level=mirror --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda3 /dev/sdb3

Do you have any page to point, with the right documentation to achieve a replication of the hard disk without a format of the source disk?

Applications :: Making Back-up Copies Of DVDs Using Dvdrip

Nov 3, 2010

It has been such time that I have been making back-up copies of my DVDs using dvdrip. Lately I tried to back-up DVD of Iron Man2 and was surprised to see so many titles under Table of Contents. 93 titles of which re all running 2 hours plus. And so I ripped the recommended one which is the longest running title. Surprisingly, the output is all screwed up. Meaning scene one is at the end along with some scenes from the middle of the film and so on. Is there any way to correctly choose which of the 93 titles is the right one please? Obviously, I can't go through the motions of doing it one by one. Or would it be more practical to just copy the whole DVD image and burn in another DVD instead of making a HD back-up?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Data CD/DVDs Do Not Automount?

Feb 6, 2011

Running 11.3, KDE 4.4.Have searched all over hell on the Internet, no solution found.When I insert a data CD or data DVD created with K3B sometime in the past, the Device Notifier pops up with NO description of the device plugged in. After it goes away, I can hover over it and it will say the name of the device which is the volume label of the backup CD or DVD.However, when I go to Konqueror, there is nothing showing under /media.If I run Dolphin and view the Places menu, the CD shows up there, I can double click on it and open it.

In Device Notifier Settings, under Removable Devices, I have Enable Automatic Mounting of Removable Media checked, as well as Only Automatically Mount Removable Media That Has Been Manually Mounted Before, and Automatically Mount Removable Media When Attached.The CD inserted does appear in the Attached Devices list in the Removable Devices.If I put a CD in and check Konqueror, it does not show under /Media. If I then load Dolphin, it shows in the Places menu and under /Media. THEN if I go back to Konqueror, without doing anything else, it will THEN show up in /Media.If I then close Dolphin and eject the CD/DVD, it disappears from /Media as expected. If I then reinsert the DVD into the drive, without opening Dolphin, it will re-appear in Konqueror under /Media as it should.Why isn't this working properly in Konqueror? It's a massive annoyance.There is zero documentation for Device Notifier available and especially for setting up Device Settings.At one point, I thought that "Only Automatically Mount Removable Media That Has Been Manually Mounted Before" might be the problem, so I unchecked it. But it does appear to be the problem.

I don't know why KDE 4.4 can't do what KDE 3.5 did - just automatically mount CDs/DVDs and USB devices without a lot of rigmarole and undocumented settings and with a simple selection of what you want to do with the mounted device (which I usually just ignore, select nothing, and go look at the inserted device with Konqueror). This was simple and worked. Now it's a nightmare and I see from browsing the forums that a lot of people have had problems with automounting.

Fedora :: Copying CDs / DVDs (Video And Data) In Raw Mode

Dec 10, 2009

I'm trying to find out which application will copy DVD discs (video and data) in raw mode. Something that works for DVDs like cdrdao works for CDs. I tried using cdrdao but it errors out because the DVD disc is too big for it. I tried looking at Brasero but I can't tell if it offers a raw option. I see that Brasero lets you copy a DVD to a RAW image, then burn the RAW image back to a DVD-R. If Brasero uses RAW mode to do a direct copy, this would essentially do the same thing, but I can't tell if that is what it does. But, I think this will work.

Ubuntu :: Need Program To Backup Across DVDs

Mar 9, 2010

Back in the DOS days (yes I am dating myself) there was a backup command that would back the selected files across a series of floppy disks. Is there such a command in Karmic to backup across multiple DVDs?

I would like to do some backups of my data and other important files but I have more than 4 GB of information. I have seen posts on ways to write a compressed file but that still stores it on the HDD and I would like the files on DVDs in case the HDD crashes.

Slackware :: Read And Write Data Dvds But Cannot Play A Regular Dvd?

Jun 29, 2011

I can read and write data dvds, but cannot play a regular dvd now. I have libdvdcss installed. I am running Slackware 64 13.37 (just installed).

MPlayer 20101218-4.5.1 (C) 2000-2010 MPlayer Team
Playing dvd://.
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open /dev/dvd for reading


It can see the drive is there and /dev/sr0 is linked to /dev/dvd and I tried running as root to check if it was a permissions problem but got the same thing.

I have tried lots of different DVDs in the drive, same issue. I even switched out my DVD drive to another old DVD-ROM I had laying around, same thing.

Fedora Hardware :: Save Data On Bluray Disks Of 25 Gb ( Better Than Dvds, More Space )?

May 18, 2011

I want to buy another laptop. I want to use FC on it. I need bluray because I want to save data on bluray disks of 25 gb (better than dvds, more space). I have one option, a fujitsu that has bluray writer, big display (I have another one, other model, same size and it's working fine with Fc14, only some small issues).

Second option is a Dell (I had an older dell inspiron before, which worked fine with FC), more expensive, lacking a writer, but it can read bluray. If I take this, I would have to also buy an external bluray writer. Has nice specs, but I am really worried about the graphic card, whether I can make it work with Fc14. I saw some people having problems with linux and this graphic card, while searching on google.

Here's specs for both (sorry for the language from website, but I found in English other specs than these, I guess the specs can be read easily): Dell XPS L702x and FUJITSU Lifebook NH570 I am inclining more towards the Fujitsu, but haven't decided yet.

General :: High Level Command Line Program For Burning CDs And DVDs?

Mar 12, 2010

I'm sick of screwing around trying to script a clean solution to burn multiple files and folders to CDs and DVDs with wodim, growisofs and genisoimage.I'm looking for a high level command line program that uses sensible defaults and takes arguments something like this:[program-name] [cd|dvd] /path/to/dir1/ /path/to/dir2/ /path/to/file ...It should then do all the low level copying and ISO generation transparently and just burn the damn disk!Does anyone have any suggestions? I've looked at several programs but it seems there are too many choices to trawl through and not enough information about them online.

General :: Finding Files That Relates To Certain Applications

Jan 28, 2010

I'm wondering if you can share some tips in regards to finding .conf files in programs when installing using package managers. I'm scratching my head on the fact that when you install a program through yum/apt-get, I don't know what and where the software is being installed at. In Windows, I know that when it installs an application, it goes into the Program Files directory, it's that simple.I know Linux has predefined directories for applications but sometimes it installs configuration files in /etc or some other locations in /usr which I have a tough time sifting through.

Is there a way to trace what .conf or any files for that matter which relates to what software that needs it? It's just hard for me to understand what file relates to what application at the moment. As much as I would like to learn more about Linux, this process for me takes up alot of time. I hope you can help me out on this one.

General :: Finding Data From A Text File?

Mar 22, 2010

I'm trying to write a shell script which finds bits of data from a text file. at the moment i'm using grep and basically i need a function which will look through the text file and take the data out of it. the file has days, months, years etc and i want it so i can type feb 06 and it finds all of the data for feb 06.

the problem i have is i can type feb and all the information comes back for feb, but i can't get it more precise e.g. feb 2009 and it finds just feb 2009, it seems to ignore that latter half. I've tried experimenting with egrep and having two inputs but i can't seem to fuse them together, it only takes the first input.
