    Cool How to copy video file?


    Hello everybody,

    I am using Fedora Core 5. I was unable to play video and mp3 file. But using mplayer, I am able to play all those stuff.

    But, still I am unable to copy video files from vcd or dvds.
    Please, tell me how can I copy these stuff to my hard disk. I want only files not the whole image of cd or dvd.

    Thanks

    I think copying Dvd or vcd is similar to any another stuff.
    If you are using GUI interface to copy..and if that's not working ,try using cp from command line that might work

    No Lakshmipathi, copy (using gui tool or cp) doesn't work on vcd or dvd formatted cds or vcds.
    When I try to copy, it creats a zero bye file and gives a file system error.
    But in vcd folder it shows all the files with correct size.

    Even when I try to play vcd files using mplayer, it doesn't work.
    When I select play VCD in mplayer it works.
