Simon, I just went through what you are doing. Let me tell you my solution,
lxdvdrip! what a neat idea. After going through all the machinations to
install all the required programs, I now put the dvd in the reader, type
lxdvdrip on the command line, play with mommie, then burn a perfect dvd with
K3b. It's that easy!

I have found a few dvds that I havent been able to copy but most are easy.
One more caveat, dont use cheap dvd media! I have a bunch of new printable
no-name dvds that make a decent copy for about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way then go
nuts. The better media works fine burning the same iso.

You can start by looking here:
