    Hi all, the standard Linux rippers don't yet
    get around the new Sony Arccos copy protection,
    but I'm told DVD-Decrypter works. Has anyone
    gotten it to work on Linux? I've read a few
    threads that claim it does, but when I run it
    under wine it doesn't find any DVD/CD devices.

    anyone?
    thanks,
    -ed

    (wanting to backup "The Forgotten" with this new
    copy protection)

    I got it to work - had to use ide-scsi to make
    my DVD drive look like a SCSI device rather than
    IDE - DVDDecrypter runs great, as does DVDShrink
    on Linux using Wine (windows emulator). I'll
    use Linux tools for the majority of disks knowing
    I can use DVDDecrypter on Linux (I'd rather go
    back to watching VHS than install Windows).

    Hi,

    I'm encountering the same problem. Could you explain me how to achieve this configuration.

    thx

    edit /boot/grub/menu.lst put "ide-scsi=/dev/hd<a>"
    where <a> is the letter of your dvd drive. This
    will magically make the drive a scsi device which
    Wine can use. as root 'chmod 777 /dev/sg0' to
    give permissions to your user with the scsi device.
    "modprobe ide-scsi" to load the scsi emulation
    module too.

    After that, Wine and DVDDecrypter will find your
    device and rip those troublesome Arccos DVDs.
    Otherwise, steer clear of Windows as much as
    possible.

    make that "hd<a>=ide-scsi" -- example:

    title Linux - craiger
    kernel (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda3 hdd=ide-scsi splash=silent desktop resume=/dev/hda1 showopts
    initrd (hd0,2)/boot/initrd

    @edfardos, I am a Linux n00b, when I try to edit the .lst file, it says I don't have permission. How do I grant myself permission? With the su -l command?
