Create an ISO and write ISO to CD-Writer
To create an iso of a cd use this command...
# mkisofs -J -r -T -o /tmp/your.iso /mnt/cdrom

To write a cd to your cdrom writer the command will be....
# cdrecord -eject -v speed=12 dev=0.0.0 /tmp/your.iso

Use the readcd command.

Or, provided that the CD was burnt correctly, simply read an image of the ISO filesystem with cat /dev/cdrom > image.iso or something equivalent (e.g. with the dd command).

Using mkisofs doesn't make much sense, because the CD contains the ISO 9660 file-system already. No need to rebuild it from scratch. It is only necessary to create a raw image of the CD.

I usually use:

dd if=/mnt/cdrom of=/tmp/myiso.iso
