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

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?

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.
