Unhappy 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?

Thanks

You can try (assuming the CD is in /dev/hdc):

dd if=/dev/hdc of=home.tar

Dear Macemoneta

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

OXX.!
