I inserted a DVD, and Nautilus shows its AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders correctly.
It is making a bit of noise (like seeking/giving up frequently) but I guess it is not the problem.

Problem: Acid Rip says DVD not found, and pressing Load for /dev/dvd does not do anything.

My /dev/dvd is a symlink to /dev/sr0.


Playing a few seconds of the video with VLC solved the problem.

After using VLC to view the DVD for a few seconds, then closing VLC, I was able to use Acid Rip just by clicking Load (still with /dev/dvd) and Start.

I guess VLC has initialized something that Acid Rip did not do. Or it needed some more time or to be played at least by some player to be used in Acid Rip.

Edit the acidrip default configuration: /usr/share/perl5/AcidRip/acidrip.pm

Near the end of the file you will see the default settings. You can change it from /dev/dvd to /dev/sr0. Another thing, for me, was set crop = 0 (off), and scale = 0 (off).

I am using Ubuntu 13.10, so your mileage my vary.
