Because of the physical state of some of my music CDs I've decided that now might be a good time to have an image of the more battered ones on my hard-drive.
Let's say that I have the Barenaked Ladies' Stunt in /dev/hdc. Not knowing any better I try the following
dd if=/dev/hdc of=/home/blt/stunt.iso
which promptly returns
dd: reading `/dev/hdc': Input/output error
After searching around on this forum, googling, and RTFM I think my problem is that audio CDs are multi-session, which dd can't handle. I think. I say that because the noise was so high that I really couldn't figure anything out. Most of the stuff I found pertained not to making and image of an audio cd but making an audio cd of an image.
Not what I needed.
So, could someone please explain to me how I could make an iso9660 image of a multi session CD using the command line tools?
