genisoimage


Anyone know why this doesn't work? Trying to copy an old CD of Joni Mitchell

genisoimage -o /home/peter/Desktop/joni.iso /media/cdrom0

This is what I get when I put -v

peter@vaya:~$ genisoimage -o /home/peter/Desktop/joni.iso -v /media/cdrom0
I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
genisoimage 1.1.2 (Linux)

Well thanks very! I knew dd was very handy, but didn't know it could make isos. Will try, as soon as poss.
But didn't you make a mistake there: the first "of=" should be an if= ?

Well, only get this with dd

vaya:/home/peter# dd if=/dev/hdc of=/home/peter/Desktop/jm.iso
dd: reading `/dev/hdc': Input/output error
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes (0 B) copied, 0.00348835 seconds, 0.0 kB/s

Tried it as root to avoid permission probs.

Did mange to copy it though with Sound Juicer. The problem earlier was, the directory /tmp was full, and the program stopped. When I changed the setting to /home/peter/musictemp where there is lots of space, well, everything hunky dory.
Would still like to know what is wrong with dd!!

I mounted /dev/hdc with mount -t tmpfs /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 That didn't give an error

mount shows /dev/hdc on /media/cdrom0 type tmpfs (rw)
Ok, for dd, you have to umount, did that.
This is an old cd, shouldn't have fancy protections.

Is this an audio disc by any chance? I have just been reading that dd does not work well with audio discs. Its something to do with audio discs and their filesystem (lack of an iso filesystem).

Not at all. My favourite music is mostly African and a bit of reggae, soul and R'n'B.

Well, sounds like good music, your music. Right up my street!
Anyway, got the command line copying working with cdrdao. Works perfect! So if anyone asks how to copy music from the command line, tell them:

peter@vaya:~$ cdrdao read-cd --datafile /home/peter/Desktop/joni.img --device ATA:1,0,0 joni.toc

and to write

peter@vaya:~$ cdrdao write --datafile /home/peter/Desktop/joni.img --device ATA:1,0,0 --buffers 48 joni.toc

I set buffers to 48, as I got a buffer underrun on the first attempt. Of course the device may be different! Rock'n'Roll!
