Commercial instructional DVDs often have copy protection or some "pay per
mechanism. My former work regularly provided instructional DVD's that
not be copied. The software kept a log of the user's progress on the
and created a certificate file to print on completion, but in some cases we
have the DVD inserted to use the course.
Can it be done with Fedora 31, the computer with a DVD drive and
if possible what is the best program to use. They are made for a Windows
computer and of course will not function in Linux. I can see the files
and run videos etc but the lessons will not run in my Linux computer.
I tried k3b but it did not even see the disk?
I keep a few commercial DVD's produced by ESA and NASA that
are not copy protected to test DVD readers and software.
Anyway what can I do to put them on a 64 GB flash drive?
Assuming the DVD doesn't reboot into PC-DOS or the like,
Plan A: straight copy to the USB key and see if it is usable.
Plan B: Windows 10 can loop mount some .iso image files, so
make ISO image file of DVD using dd
and see if works
Plan C: use the ISO image file to make a "clone" of the DVD.
