ok, i'm new to linux. i've just installed the latest ubuntu and updated eveything. there were a few programs that i used often under windows that i wanted to continue with. they are ConvertXtoDVD, CloneDVD and AnyDVD. i have wine 1.1.0 installed and i have installed all 3 of those programs and added them to the Applications section of wine.
CloneDVD and AnyDVD both give the same error message when i try to start them " Failed to init ElbyCDIO" after some searching it seems that there is a .dll file that creates a virtual cd drive that will not work with wine?? secondly i can see in several places online that ConvertXtoDVD works with wine, but it will not start for me, i get a message on the taskbar that it is starting, but it disappears and then nothing??
any help would be greatly appreciated. i really don't want to dual boot just to copy dvd's or convert mp4 and divx files to dvd. any suggested alternative programs to these would be also appreciated.
