How to rip .VRO files from DVD video recorders
Authored by: PeaceFreak on Nov 30, '06 07:52:20AM

Well, I am getting closer but not quite there yet. Glad to know there are so many helpful people out there...

For some strange reason the DVD now is appearing in the Finder. (I restarted!).. So I typed in:

sudo cd

then dragged the DVD icon to the terminal, and it looked like so:

sudo cd/Volumes/\$\ Dvd\ Rewritable\ Volume\ \$/

I pressed return and got the following:

sudo: cd/Volumes/$ Dvd Rewritable Volume $/: command not found

I also tried with the VRO file itself. I dragged it in after sudo cd. Here is the result:

[John:~] jones% sudo cd/Volumes/\$\ Dvd\ Rewritable\ Volume\ \$/DVD_RTAV/VR_MOVIE.VRO
sudo: cd/Volumes/$ Dvd Rewritable Volume $/DVD_RTAV/VR_MOVIE.VRO: command not found
[John:~] jones%

I hope someone can suggest something... I just noticed that the person who started this thread wrote:

A quick sudo (via !!) later I was greeted with two files: VR_MOVIE.INF and VR_MOVIE.VRO.

I wonder if (via !!) has some specal meaning?

First of all, to me it seems like the OP said that he couldn't solve the problem in the terminal, but needed to use Toast... So I think you could drop your problems with the Terminal for this time.

To adress your questions, it seems like you forgot the <space> after the cd command. It should look like sudo cd /Volumes/... not sudo cd/Volumes/...

The cd command means change directory, so after a succesfull run, you should get your normal prompt but now you are located in a different directory and can look at its content with the command ls. I recommend the UNIX FAQ that can be found in the forums! (http://forums.macosxhints.com/showthread.php?t=40648)
