Re: Starting makemkvcon through udev rule - strange behaviour

It's an old post I know, but udev is tricky, so here I am. :) I invested a bunch of time googling and found that you can't start long living processes from udev. So i set up another ("in-between") script (run_on_disc_inserted.sh) which is called by udev and simply starts my ripping script in this wa...

Re: Detect Blu-ray optical disc drive speed?

Okay, I figured it out. Put a Blu-ray disc in your tray (not DVD or CD, they will report different speeds), and run cdrdao: cdrecord -prcap Here's a snippet from mine: Maximum read speed: 17982 kB/s (CD 102x, DVD 12x, BD 4x) Current read speed: 17982 kB/s (CD 102x, DVD 12x, BD 4x) Maximum write spee...

Detect Blu-ray optical disc drive speed?

So, Blu-ray drives have different read speeds. Spec says a 1x can read at 32 Mbits / second, or, 4.5 megabytes.

Is there a way though to detect the read-speed of an optical drive in Linux that anyone knows of?

Re: Optical Drive not being found

Just a heads up, if you're using Gentoo, you'll need SCSI generic support in your kernel built-in or as a module (sg). Look for CONFIG_CHR_DEV_SG

Code: Select all

Device drivers -->
  SCSI device support -->
    <*> SCSI generic support

Script to rip DVD / Blu-ray from any source (iso, dir, dev)

Here's a script I wrote and use to rip all my stuff regardless of where it's at -- a device file, a directory, or an ISO I've already made, and will use the proper makemkvcon arguments. Some example usages: dvd_makemkv /dev/sr0 dvd_makemkv bluray.iso dvd_makemkv /mnt/bluray Here you go, hope this he...
