Almost what you're already doing, but no need to use any special program
to copy your DVD to a file before reburning it, just use "dd".  For
example:

  dd if=/dev/dvd of=/tmp/backup.iso
  growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=/tmp/backup.iso
  rm /tmp/backup.iso

(Modify to suit your own system requirements.)

NB:  You shouldn't even have to use growisofs in some special way, even
a DVD capable cdrecord should be able to do the job, as you've already
mastered your DVD in the proper way, and the "dd" program will replicate
it "as-is".

It's easy enough, just time consuming.
