I'm a newbie with DVDs, but I got this to work at least (much to my
I found I could create an image of the DVD simply by running
sudo dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/peter/dump
on the mounted DVD. I assume this dumps a complete image, including the
file system of the DVD.
This image plays fine in totem-xine and vlc.
The "dump" file is mountable using
sudo mount -o loop dump your-directory-of-choice

I assume that this image file could be "burned" directly to a DVD, although
I don't have a DVD burner, just a Mac iBook G4 with a drive that reads
