very useful utility, everyone should see


the dd comamnd (disk dump)

it copies using std in and out (raw i/o?)

anyway I have ut2003 and it works in linux etc. I tried installing it and would get a i/o error on first disc exiting install. I tried cat, but it did not work (usually it does) ex:
cat /dev/cdrom > /home/exodist/ut2003d1.sio
i/o error

then i remembered dd
I tried:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/exodist/ut2003d1.iso
it ended with an i/o error, however the image it made was exact size as mounted cd.
burned to new dic.. worked fine:
cdrecord speed=16 dev=2,0,0 /home/exodist/ut2003d1.iso

tried using it... success worked perfectly

this command has othe ruses to, but it seems very good for recovering data from bad cd's.. (if not to bad)

I recommend it for restoring data, I do not however think it should be used for illegal copying of disks. we are free software users, not pirates. as well few companies make native linux stuff, if we pirate it all and they don't profit they will cease to make them.. plus it is wrong. I am happy to say I use no pirated software, and ut2003 is only software I pay for :-P
open source forever!!

I never really paid attention to this command till you mentioned it....I had used it to burn a couple of iso's before but never really read the info file for it......there is some pretty interesting things you can do with it......one day Im going to devote an entire day to just reading man and info page for different linux commands......

You could always get the o'reilly Linux in a nutshell book, that'll tell you the commands you need to do and what they do. then if you feel inclined you can take it to bed.
