    What sort of DVD ? ( You should include more detail in your post )

    1. For encrypted DVD ( video ) try k9copy

    just install the livna release key

    http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/

    and

    yum install k9copy

    2. For unencrypted DVD try k3b ( just copy the DVD and check the box "only create image" )

    yum install k3b

    just:
    cat /dev/dvd>filename.iso
    works well.

    what is the difference between installing k3b and k9copy with just simply doing the cat /dev/dvd>filename.iso.

    Does the latter work for copywrited files?

    don't you mean "dd"?
    Linux is more then an Operating System, it's a state of mind, a way of life :eek:

    Problem with the cat /dev/dvd on older Linux systems.

    I tried this on some different Linux boxes. It worked good for me on all but one, an older one didn't stop writing to the file. I recommend to try it and watch the file as it is written to make sure it works properly for you.

    Use the rawread script from

    http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux...ss.htm#rawread

    which checks the ISO header to see how big the ISO file actually is, then reads exactly that much off the disc. I use it regularly to check ISOs after burning them. It works for both CDs and DVDs.
