Microsoft blew its right foot off with Windows 8.
They went to the doctor to get it reattached with Windows 8.1 only to wake up to find out that a second left foot was attached in place.

But, I'm still getting the same error message:
An error occurred during DVD authoring.
I'm using default settings... is there something I should be changing?
The dvd in question is currently Pink Panther by Sony.
Here are some screenies of the errors:

dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/storage/discs/deltaForce.iso bs=2048Change /dev/cdrom to whatever your device is named, and /storage/discs/deltaForce.iso to the path and filename of the iso. After you do this you should have no trouble burning the iso with K3B, Brasero, or any of the other burning programs for Linux.
If you want to rip a dvd (and I know you aren't asking this, but just to get this information out there, dvd::rip is a great program.

all I do is put ithe dvd in my drive open k3b click on the drive with the media I want to back up a pop up appears I then click on the tab that says open dvd copy dialog.
another pop up appears I click on only create image under the options tag then I click on the image tag and browse to where I want to store the dvd then I just click start.
by doing it this way you use a lot more disc space coz your creating an iso image(cloning the dvd) but it will copy the dvd in about 5 mins instead of encoding and backing up just the film file(this is what happens if you "rip" the dvd) which takes about 8 hrs on my pc but uses up a lot less disc space.
I will have to try the create image option. What I have been doing is simply clicking on copy in the toolbar.
edit:- If you can't even watch it let me know and I'll check if there's something your missing against what I got installed coz if I remember correctly you have 64bit suse installed same as me....
Actually, Kubuntu 6.10...But Suse is a goal for this summer.
I like Linux, but I'm having some Kubuntu frustrations that I can't seem to get rid of... But, I don't have time to learn Suse until the semester is over. So, come the end of May, I'm giving Suse a go!
For the record, I've successfully burned several DVD's now; however, I'm still having problems with the discs labeled "copy-protected."
I have not tried watching them in my computer... but I've never had a problem watching a dvd before once I got the codecs installed.

To squash any confusion about the "Legality" of copyrighted material for the "End User", here goes, (This pertains to the laws of the United States Only)...
If you own a "Hard Copy" (i.e. a physical copy) of ANY copyrighted material such as books, songs, games, video games, movies and even software, you have the right under U.S. law to make up to TWO ADDITIONAL COPIES of said material, a "Back-Up" copy & a "Usable" copy and you may keep them as long as you have the hard physical copy of the original purchased material.
Companies that make the threats of "Prosecution" and/or add some form of "Protection" fail to tell you these little bits so as to intimidate you.
HOWEVER !!! (Here comes the clincher/s)...
1: You may at NO time sell or freely distribute/redistribute ANY of the copyrighted back up material !!!
2: Upon relinquishing original copyrighted material, the "Backup" and "Usable" copies MUST be destroyed, (the new guy/gal has to make their own !!!
and here's the big one !!!
3: "Downloaded Content" DOES NOT fall under the "End User" rights laws even if purchased. eBooks, songs, games, video games, movies and software as there is no original "Physical Copy" of the material CAN NOT be copied !!! Even as the "End User", unless you have purchased with or separately, a distribution or redistibution license of the downloaded material/s from the owner of the "Copyright" of said material, , you can CLAIM NO RIGHTS to said material. (just being on a hard drive or memory stick or even burnt to disk does NOT count as an "ORIGINAL PHYSICAL COPY")
So BEWARE to all who this may or even may not pertain to, just to know this can keep your tail out of some big trouble but give you some peace of mind as well.

Why dig up a 6 year old thread?

Maybe the poster was 6 years old when the thread was a thread and now said thread has relevance to him or her?
I've never gotten this thing about not resurrecting old topics. Yes, do your due diligence and Google or whatever what you need to know, but if a thread is old and has an answer in it, why not?
Maybe MBs should clean out their old threads if they don't want people opening them after SIX YEARS, OH JESUS!
Trust me, if there is a 25-year-old thread on here about how I juggled between two beautiful gfs, damn right I want it immortalized.

good legal info, and something everyone should know in my opinion.

Some DVDs just can't be copied in Linux. Some DVDs have intentionally built in bad sectors which defeat any Linux program I've ever tried and can only be backed up/copied by a windows program like AnyDVD. Also, even if there are no bad sectors built in or from scratches, some DVDs have 99 title copy protection which baffles k3b, dvdbackup/mkisofs, and k9copy but dd will make an iso of them.

If not for commercial use, i think okay for most countries.
