Question convert DVD to ISO file


Hi!

I am looking for an application which can convert a DVD to an ISO file. I 'd like to keep the booting capability offered by the DVD.

Thanks in advance for your help !

Cheers

Hi.

Do
Code:
dd if=/dev/hdc of=/path/to/out.iso
Replace /dev/hdc with your DVD drive's device, and put in where you want your ISO file to go instead of /path/to

You can also use k3b to do this graphically. Just click on "copy CD" and tick "only create image". Click on the "image" tab to select where to keep the image.

So both of those methods keep the booting feature of the original DVD ? Thank you guys for your answers, at least I have the choice GUI or Command line :-)

Cheers

Code:
cat /dev/hdd /home/cam/dvd.iso
And yes, all of the above will make *exact* copies of the DVD, including any booting functionality

I guess what you meant was
Code:
cat /dev/hdd > /home/cam/dvd.iso

Will the Copy CD work the same as Copy DVD? And a bit off topic, what's the difference between Normal Copy and Clone Copy in the copy mode of k3b?

dd and k3b created ISO are NOT exactly the same

I've used both dd (dd -if /dev/cdrom -of file.iso) and k3b to create ISOs from a DVD. Both seemed to create usable ISOs, but they were not exactly the same size. The k3b ISO was a few thousand bytes larger. Obviously, it would be nice to understand the difference, and whether or not it matters.
