[vox-tech] backing up DVDs (was Re: [vox] fair use / DVD questions)

Not too long ago I acquired a Sony DVD+/-RW drive and looked into 'backing up' a purchased DVD onto DVD5 media. The best resource I found was:


Unfortunately, the software is all for windows. I did find a some stuff for linux (dvd::rip) that would rip the DVD to a hardrive and transcode to something that fits on a CD (VCD, AVI, etc.), but I had no luck converting the title VOBs to something usable that would burn to a DVD5.

In addition, I had no success buring DVD+R/RW media in linux using dvd+rw-tools. I have not yet tried dvd-record with DVD-R/RW media.

Anyone have a positive experience backing up DVDs in linux? writing DVD+ media in linux?

make backup copies of their own commercially purchased DVD's?

are there any affordable home consumer DVD writers that can write to
DVD9 (single side, double layer, ~9GB) disks?
