General :: Creating DVDs From Terminal (Ubuntu 8.1)

Aug 20, 2010

Trying to COPY some of my DVDs, I've had tons of problems with the various applications such as K3B and Brasero (not putting them down though, just my experience). Recently I found the commands to use dvdbackup, and it worked perfectly. I can copy my DVDs easily and flawlessly. Really happy about that. Is there a command-line way of creating DVDs? I've got to say that using the terminal has been the most reliable and robust for me. Is there a way to create DVDs via the terminal? I'm running Ubuntu 8.1 on a Dell laptop.

Fedora Installation :: F12 - Creating Bootable CDs (DVDs)

Apr 23, 2010

I downloaded 64-bit fedora12 iso DVD image and created a DVD. When I tried to boot, the CD does not boot. I checked the documentation to see whether book.iso or any other file needs to be copied along with. My question is:

- What are the files I need to copy to a DVD for the DVD to boot up straight up from the DVD...?
- If not, is there another way to get this fresh installation done.

I have 32-bit Fedora 11 installed in a machine, but need 64-Fedora to do some testing, before going with RH Linux.

Ubuntu :: DVDs Still Not Playing?

Feb 18, 2011

I have still not succeeded in getting my Region 2 DVDs to play in Ubuntu 10.04. I used something called Regionset to reset the player from zero to 2 for playback in the UK but although it is now set to Region 2 it will only play Region 0 DVDs. I have tried all sorts of tricks with codecs and installing VLC and (of course) Ubuntu Restricted Extras but no joy.

Ubuntu :: 10.4 - Only Some DVDs Play

Jan 18, 2011

I have used my PC for watching videos for some time. Normalmente with VLC under Ubuntu 10.4. Recently though I have two videos I brought from the States (I am in Argentina) and neither will work. They are ok on my DVD player, but not on the PC. In VLC the control pannel opens, but the video window opens a second and closes. In the Mplayer it says it could not read from source.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Back Up One Of Dvds To Hdd?

Mar 14, 2010

I'm trying to back up one of my dvds to my hdd. My usual method is to copy the video_ts folder onto my hdd and convert it from there. I popped this dvd into my computer and nautilus is saying that there is 71.8gb of data on this disk. If I run df -h, here's what I see:


There are actually 65 of these 1gb files. why this is happening or how to get this backed up?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Not Playing / But Only Sometimes

Apr 14, 2010

My newly installed (but not new) DVD drive seems to play some movies some days, but others all the time. I'm pretty sure it's just a little picky about scratches. I can hear it in the drive; when I insert the disk, I can tell when it isn't spinning. When it does start spinning, that's when the Media options window pops up asking me what I want to do with the disk.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Rip Clips From DVDs

May 30, 2010

I've got a project which requires me to go through a bunch of dvds and take little clips out of them. I do not want to have to rip the entire dvd and then transcode it and then take the clip out of the one I've saved on my drive as I have lots and lots of dvds to get though I've tried loads of things and none of them seem to be able to do this, dvdrip, cinelarra, kedenlive, live, kino and others that I can't remember the names of.

Ubuntu :: Setting Icons For CDs / DVDs

For windows computers, you make an "autorun" file and point it to the icon.ico file, and when the disk is inserted, you get the icon of your choice displayed. However, how do I make a similar set up for Linux?

Ubuntu :: Rip My DVDs - Reduce Cpu Usage ?

Jul 11, 2010

I need to rip my DVDs, an operation which is heavy on the CPU, on my laptop. This makes the temperature rise very quickly, even if the process has very high nice value, and my laptop was already shut off automatically once. Probably there is some bug, since the temperature if often hotter than optimal, but this is really too much (plus these days my room is hot too).

I don't want to ruin anything, so I'd like to put some kind of limit on the CPU usage. Say I don't want any of the two CPUs to go over 70% (a moment ago they were both at 100%, I have paused the process). Is there a way ti d0 this?

Ubuntu :: Last Few Burned DVDs Won't Mount?

Jul 30, 2010

I've been backing up some data recently because I'm planning to upgrade to 10.04. It had been going well until today. I burned a couple DVDs, tested them, and they were fine. I burned another one, tested it, and it wouldn't mount. Got the following: "Unable to mount media. There is probably no media in the drive." (Was using K3b).

I tried the same one again, this time using GnomeBaker. Seemed to burn alright, but once again would not mount when I tested it. So, I thought maybe it's just this one particular folder. I tried to burn a DVD with completely different data. Same thing, seemed to burn OK, but again it will not mount.

I went back and re-tested the DVDs that worked OK earlier today, and these ones are still mounting. Any ideas? Did my burner suddenly go bad? Or does someone know of any other possibilities that hopefully could be fixed? -using Verbatim 16x DVD-Rs (burned on 8x)-Lite-On SHW-160P6S

-Ubuntu 8.10
-755 MB RAM
-Intel Xeon CPU 1.70GHz
-used no multisession (or finalized in Gnomebaker)
-used linux+windows filesystem

-I was burning mostly video files (.avi, a couple of .wmv, couple of text files, subfolders with other .avi, etc.)--basically the same type of data whether they could mount or not.

Ubuntu :: Can't Load - Burn CDs And DVDs / Fix It?

Aug 11, 2010

As the title says, I am currently unable to watch DVDs or listen to audio CDs on my system - they simply do not load. Same goes for burning.

The system can load data CD-Rom's but even this is sluggish.

All of these functions have worked fine for me in the past and I'm not sure what changed between then and now. I'm pretty sure that my CD/DVD drive itself is fine, and that it's a system problem somewhere within Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Play DVDs / What's Going On?

Aug 24, 2010

When I put a DVD in either of my two drives, the movie will not play using either VLC or Movie Player.

When I go to 'Open Disc' in VLC, next to 'Disc Device' it lists a string of two very odd characters, ��, as the only option. The drop-down arrow doesn't work. When I click on 'Browse' and navigate to the name of the movie (which I assume is the drive) in the 'Places' menu, nothing happens.

In Movie Player, when I go to Movie > Play Disc "(Insert Movie Name Here)", I get the following error message: "Could not read from resource"

The same thing happens with either drive, with either of two DVDs.

DVDs seem to play fine in Windows XP using VLC.

What's going on here?

Ubuntu :: Can't Keep Putting Files In CD/DVDs

Oct 8, 2010

Whenever I put a few files into a blank CD or DVD, wether it's pictures, music, documents, whatever, and then I use it another day and try to put a few more files into it, Ubuntu won't let me. I used to be able to continue adding files to my CDs in XP, so I'm not sure if there's any way to do that with Ubuntu? It just shows the DVD as (for example) 1.4 GB used, 0 GB free.

Ubuntu :: Wine And DVDs Not Detected?

Oct 19, 2010

I just installed 10.10 coming from 10.04. I was using Wine and DVDShrink to back up my DVDs, make iso's of the etc. It was working fine in that when I placed a dvd in the drive, wine/DVDShrink saw it immediately, with the name of the mount in the media folder attached to drive D: Now on a fresh install, the DVD mounts in the media folder, but wine/DVDShrink doesn't see it. I have to manually specify the full path to the mount point /media/DVD_name_US_16x9_whatever as drive D: using winecfg. I know I had a lot more stuff installed before configuring wine under 10.04 like fuseiso and such but I don't know which may have done what, or maybe something changed in Maverick?I don't want to have to winecfg for every DVD I put in the drive...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Still Won't Play

Jun 8, 2011

I've installed libdvdcss2 (using these instructions), but still can't play encrypted DVDs. It appears to be an encryption thing, because I can play backed-up/decrypted DVDs. I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, 64 bit. Another user here got it working by installing Ubuntu from scratch, then going straight to install medibuntu and libdvdcss, but that's not a realistic option for me at this point.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Not Recognizing Blank DVDs

Aug 18, 2011

I'm trying burn an ISO to a DVD+R. but I cannot seem to get it recognized. The drive will read a CD-R that I have, but not the DVD. I have found quite a few threads about this, but none had any working solutions. Does anyone know what I could do? Could it be because the bottom of the disc is blue rather than silver?

Ubuntu :: Self-produced DVDs Not Recognized?

Feb 23, 2010

I am a fan of films that record with a DVD recorder with HD model Samsung.Wanting to pass on what I recorded on pc I had to burn movies on dvd rewritable, as the Samsung does not make me move movies on USB stick.Then I finalize the DVD with the DVD recorder that ever so I created a 4.7GB VIDEO_TS folder and G with related vob files inside.This dvd if you put them on the PC with Windows start and I can see the actual content of the file in Windows Explorer and then copy them to develop.If the computer starts with Ubuntu 9.04 I can only see them through mplayer, I have to say to open the DVD, but I can not get to see the content.Tells me that it is impossible to mount the dvd (permission problems), sees them empty to format, in short, with Ubuntu I can not have files for them to process.All this happens only with DVDs burned on my dvd recorder from the table.
