Well after many hours of toiling and burning coasters, I've finally managed to backup a DVD to a DVD+R that should play on ROMS and standalone players. I figured I'd share the knowledge to save others the hassle. This will only work with 1 side of a DVD or a single sided DVD. This guide's only intended for DVD+R drives, though it shoudl work with DVD+RW.

Here's what you will need

dvd+rw-tools dvdrtools and dvdbackup
also you will need udf read and write support in the kernel or as modules. I'll assume the same drive is the source and end destination. SCSI emulation working on the drive is a must as far as I know.

First you need to make the image of the DVD on the hard drive.
Code:
dvdbackup -M -i /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd -o /home/user/dvd


now we need to make sure it didn't miss anything on the DVD. So we're going to mount it and copy some more stuff over, but say no to overwriting any files.
Code:
mount -t udf -o ro /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd /mnt/cdrom
cd /mnt/cdrom/VIDEO_TS/
cp -i *.IFO /home/user/dvd/NameOfDVD
cp -i VIDEO_TS* /home/user/dvd/NameOfDVD
cd /home/user/dvd
umount /mnt/cdrom


Remember not to overwrite any of the above files, this is just to make sure nothing was missed. Next we need to make the image of the DVD to prepare it for burning.

Code:
mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o /home/user/dvd/NameOfDVD.iso /home/user/dvd/NameOfDVD


OK, now we're ready to burn the DVD. You'll probably want to do this as root, since I don't think it can use the built in dd command as a user.
Code:
growisofs -Z /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd=/home/user/dvd/NameOfDVD.iso


OK that should make you a backup of the DVD. Works fine with my 4x NEC DVD+R

*edit* you might be able to get DVDs larger than 4.4GBs to copy by only copying the feature instead of the whole disk. So you'd use this dvdbackup command
Code:
dvdbackup -i /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd -v -F -o /home/user/dvd

I used a guide...
http://www.frogcement.com/html/dvd/linux_dvd_burning.html

This is basically the same as your info, using the -F feature you mentioned. However, I still had a problem. Even using the -F flag, the files were above 4.7 GB when I do a du -h.

Does anyone know how to determine which files are features I can take out (ie other languages, etc)?

One solution would be to backup the entire dvd then use dvd shrink under wine to reencode reauthor the dvd

dvd shrink is free

:D

Yeah, the solution "dvdbackup + wine/dvdshrink + growisofs" works perfectly!!!

And root perms are not required either.

I've used growisofs on kernel 2.6.0-test6 w/o scsi emulation and with a "normal" user with no problems for paulisdead's last step:
Code:
growisofs -Z /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target1/lun0/cd=/my/dvd_image.iso


worked like a charm - thanks for the HOWTO!

For those of you that have gotten dvdshrink to work under wine, how did you get it to work? Any DLL's required? I can run the 3.0 Beta 5, but when I re-author, I'm not able to either drag-and-drop or copy and paste things from one window to the other.

Right now I'm running dvdshrink on my wife's PC, but it's much slower than mine :D Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No DLLs are required.
Use the context-menu to copy and paste the files.

I've been trying to... I can select the item I want, right-click to choose copy, then right-click in the destination window to select paste, but nothing happens!

Has anyone gotten LVE http://home.arcor.de/gmo18t/lve/ to work? I tried about a month or so ago, and couldn't get it to go. I can't remember what was wrong, but maybe it's been fixed recently, since it looks like they've done a lot of updates in October. If anyone takes a crack at it, you'll need to grab the version of ffmpeg from their site as well as LVE, and when you run ./configure you need to do it as "./configure --prefix=/usr/local" since that's where it wants ffmpeg and LVE to be installed. I'll try taking another crack at it today if I have time.

I have problems getting burned DVDs to work with my DVD-player (Pioneer DV-444). DVD-player just says that it cannot play the media.

First I did

Code:

dvdbackup -M -i /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd -o /dvd



Then I used DVDShrink to fit movie to media. Next I did two different images from files that DVDShrink created, ISO and UDF.

Code:

mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o /dvd/matrix.iso /dvd/MATRIX

Code:

mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o /dvd/matrix.udf   /dvd/MATRIX


I burned images

Code:

growisofs -Z /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd=/dvd/matrix.iso

Code:

growisofs -Z /dev/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd=/dvd/matrix.udf


But they don’t work with my DVD-player. Any ideas why? I use Linux 2.6-test8/9. If I use Windows 2000 + DVDShrink and Nero, burned DVD works in my player without problems. I don’t want to move back to Windows. Help!

Add an empty AUDIO_TS folder. And you don't need the ISO-stuff!

this has never been required in my experience, actually having an AUDIO_TS can stop it working on some DVD players
