Make an ISO out of a CD

categories: - Howto - Linux

dd if=/dev/hda of=/home/user/cd.iso bs=2048 conv=notrunc

Where /dev/hda is your cdrom drive..

How do I find that out ? (snippet)

user@localhost:~$ mount ... /dev/sda1 on /media/win type ntfs (rw) **/dev/hda on /media/cdrom0 type iso9660 (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,user=user)**

The admin blogger mentionned an easier way : cat /dev/hda > /home/user/cd.iso
