Recovering tar files burnt to cd without a filesystem??
I did this:
cdrecord -v -eject speed=4 dev=0,0,0 home.tar
This burnt it to a CD. But I can't recover it as I did not mount a filesystem! I did not make
an iso image first. Is there ANY way I can recover this file from CD?
You can try (assuming the CD is in /dev/hdc):
dd if=/dev/hdc of=home.tar
Thank you. Thankyou. Thankyou.
You have helped me recover months of work. dd rocks.
I got I/O errors when I used my cdrom device but worked like a charm when
I used the external cdburner Ie:
dd if=/dev/cdrecorder of=home.tar
