If you want to 'edit' the file, then that's potentially a bigger
problem since you will need to check what video codecs are supported
by the editting software you wish to use and that will probably
require conversion to a format that is acceptable to your video editor
software. If you do actually want to "edit" the file - i.e. make cuts,
etc. send another mail mentioning what video editor software you plan
to use and I can give you some options for conversion. But for copying
CD to CD, the ISO method suggested by Onkar should work.

Why doesn't this same procedure work on Ubuntu?

Play the file, then chose Wizard under File Menu and look under
Transcode/Save . Although the other tools mentioned on the list like
Acidrip, etc. should probably be preferred since they are more
designed specifically to rip VCD / DVDs..

Hope your problem is solved:)
