How can I make an .iso file from a CD or DVD using the command line?
I'm on FC6 and would like to burn an .iso file to my desktop from a CD (audio CD). I've tried two different commands which I found Googling around the Net:
The idea is to learn more about command line tools as well as about .iso files, burning CDs and DVDs... If I use the command line to make an .iso file, will the .iso file be an 'exact' copy of the CD or will it only be an exact copy if the CD is a non-commercial CD? How about DVDs?
How can I go about getting CD quality sound files on my computer (not compressed, not mp3) with the exact same format as CDs (for quality classical music recordings, for example)?
Any other useful tricks and tips?
I don't know if this will work on audio cd's but give it a try:
dd if=/dev/hdc of=/home/name/audiocd.iso bs=2048 conv=notrunc
This assumes your cd drive is hdc, to check when it's mounted try df
For lossless audio rip your cd's to flac. A good program for this is grip.
Since you are bent on learning, maybe you have some use for this old thread:
Also use the links provided in the thread.
P.S.: Use dd with the -v option, perhaps the verbose output better exlains the I/O error. BTW do you have writing rights in the directory where you gave the command in?
One source on my desk says the most straightforward is
cdrecord -v dev=0,1,0 -isosize /dev/sdc0
which directly copies a source disk to a recordable disk.
