Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

I try to convert my DVDs into ISO images for streaming them via my PS3.

I use the Brasero "Copy Disc..." functionality and until now it failed on the following discs with "Error reading video DVD (fatal error in vts css key)":

- ANTZ, Region Code 2+4, Disc 1 - Movie
- Toy Story - The Ultimate Toy Box, Region Code 2, Disc 3 - Bonus Footage

The Brasero log for the ANTZ DVD is attached. The other log was similar, if needed I can regenerate it again.

I was able to convert the Antz DVD into a ISO image using the following script:

#!/bin/bash

DEV=$1
ISO=$2

if [ -z "$DEV" ]
then
  echo "Usage: $0 <DEVICE> <IMAGENAME>"
  exit 1
fi
if [ -z "$ISO" ]
then
  echo "Usage: $0 <DEVICE> <IMAGENAME>"
  exit 1
fi

BS=$(isoinfo -d -i $DEV | grep "block size" | awk '{print $5}')
VS=$(isoinfo -d -i $DEV | grep "Volume size" | awk '{print $4}')

dd if=$DEV of="$ISO" bs=$BS count=$VS

Brasero 2.26.1 ALSO seems broken for copying some CD iso images. I had to use nautilus-cd-burner.

I made iso image copies of a cd using brasero (forcing .iso, brasero wanted .toc) and nautilus-cd-burner.

The 2 resulting iso images DIFFERED.

Brasero kept giving me error messages when I would try to write its iso to a cd disc, making coasters and locking the whole machine.

Nautilus-cd-burner worked fine (same machine) for copying CD --> .iso ---> CD.

The iso images copied by brasero from a CD disc did seem to work as a virtual CD but I couldn't write them back to a CD-R using brasero.

The difference seems to be that when brasero copys a CD it pads the iso file at the end with null zeros. This somehow causes an error when attempting to burn a disc.

I've enhanced the script at Comment #3 Please note the new version required dcfldd which is an enhanced version of DD which will provide status messages including timings.

#!/bin/bash

DEV=/dev/cdrom
ISO=$1
if [ ! -z "$2" ]
then
  DEV=$2
fi

if [ -z "$ISO" ]
then
  echo "Usage: $0 <IMAGENAME> [DEVICE]"
  exit 1
fi

BS=$(isoinfo -d -i $DEV | grep "block size" | awk '{print $5}')
VS=$(isoinfo -d -i $DEV | grep "Volume size" | awk '{print $4}')

dcfldd if=$DEV of="$ISO" bs=$BS count=$VS sizeprobe=if

Same here with am64 architecture. Since it works fine in totem the bug is probably somewhere in brasero.

Pedro, where exactly can I find those new Brasero packages for download?

http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/, as well as /lucid-updates and /lucid-backports, all fail with:

"Error
mehr als eine Suite für show_static angegeben (dapper dapper-updates dapper-backports hardy hardy-updates hardy-backports intrepid intrepid-updates intrepid-backports jaunty jaunty-updates jaunty-backports karmic karmic-updates karmic-backports lucid)"

Apparently those directories don't even exist yet.

Since ISOs burned to CD with Brasero Version: 2.28.2-0ubuntu1 on Gnome Karmic, for me always fail the md5chksum, while Nerolinux Version: 4.0.0.0-1 works just fine, I really would like to give that July version a try as well.

I really want to be able to burn CDs again on my laptop as I could before with Jaunty.

And upgrading to Lucid is pointless as well, as long as the crucial WPA2 log-in problem for Ralink RT2870sta based WiFi adapters is still not being fixed.

Or are those problems coming from bugs in cdrkit instead of providing cdrtools?

I will dl it and check it out as soon as I get a chance. Thanks!

This bug happened to me with Brasero on Maverick Meerkat. It seems there is a problem between libdvdcss and Brasero, but I can read the DVD so I assume my libdvdcss is working.

I cannot find an upstream bug.

From this site http://rant.gulbrandsen.priv.no/libdvdcss-new-css-attack, it seems it's a problem with libdvdcss.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Oneiric Ocelot. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/ . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.
