Need help making a data DVD ISO
First off, I'm new to linux. I've been using Windows for 12 years and would consider myself a power user. I jumped ship to linux knowing I'd NEVER be able to afford Vista and this was a good a time as any.
I'm running Ubuntu 6.10, and I prefer to make ISO backups of all my data cds and dvds. I search this forum extensivly on the subject of making ISOs for data dvds, an everyone has suggested using dd. My problem is, it won't make an exact copy of the dvd. The commands I use is:
sudo umount /dev/cdrom (per suggestion made on the wikipedia Dd (Unix) page)
sudo dd if=/dev/cdrom of=~/Applications/WoW.iso conv=notrunc
once dd completes and I mount the iso using:
sudo mount -o loop ~/Applications/WoW.iso /mnt/D
all files are present but 'installer.exe' Obviously the iso is useless to install from if im missing installer.exe
Btw, if anyone is curious, I'm actually able to run WoW using Crossover Office 6 Standard.
Thanks in advance,
