What device represent my audio CD? /dev/?


I know that usually the device
Quote:
/dev/hdb
represents a CD. This is the case for data CD. However, when I insert an audio CD into a computer, I cannot find the appropriate device. For example, if I type,
Quote:
dd if=/dev/hdb of=audioCD.iso bs=2048
it gives me an error message instead of writing an image.

What should I do?

Audio cds don't have filesystems as such; just a series of separate music data tracks, so the /dev block devices don't recognize them, and dd can't copy them. You might try using cdrdao; it has a 'copy' option that I believe can save to image file. k3b can also copy a cd to a disk image (using the clone copy option). Note that these aren't iso9660 images though, and it may be tricky to work with them in other programs.
