Creating an ISO from a Disk(Unreal Tournament 2003 Disk 2)
 
Hey.

I want to know if it is possible to create an ISO using linux's cd writing utility. If possible, can you please tell me the command?

Also, I would also like to know the command to burn an ISO to a disk, anyone have ideas?

Thanks

I find the easiest way to create an ISO or burn one, is with K3B.

To create an ISO, open up K3B and choose TOOLS > CD > COPY CD. Afterwards click the only create image box and choose where to write it to.

To burn one, go to TOOLS > CD > BURN ISO IMAGE.

If you're looking for a command line option, wait for the pro's to break out the answers. :)

Hehe, thanks, I'll go look into it,

but is there a command line option like you said?

Thanks again

I know you can burn ISO's with cdrecord. But I'm unsure about making them (though I think it would only make sense that you could).

How to burn an ISO with cdrecord.

dd if=/dev/cdrom (or whatever) of=file.iso

That's all there is to it.

I'm no expert but it would seem that you only have one cdrom device or you would do a direct copy. With that in mind you need to make the iso image first then burn that iso image to the blank cd.

Put the cdrom with data in and mount it: mount /mnt/cdrom
Now cd /mnt/cdrom
mkisofs -r -J -o /home/image1.iso .
Note: that period at the end is important as it says to use the present directory for the imput source.
Now you can burn the image to a new cd.
cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,0,0 /home/image1.iso

Note: the speed and dev may be different for you.

I successfully made an ISO with the dd command.

First load up your CD.

Then:
$df /mnt/dvd (take note of the 'used' field, say its 610550)
And:
$dd if=/mnt/dvd of=/pathto/whatever.iso bs=1k count=610550

Replace /mnt/dvd with the mount point of your cdrom.

Hope that works for ya :)

EDIT: dang, green_dragon37 beat me to it...

If you want to have a go at the command line, have in particular a look at

(really good, that one)
and also at

Thanks JZL240I-U, I thought the second link was pretty helpful.

Oh and I have to thank green_dragon37 for that sweet how-to about the wireless logitech keyboard and mouse on his site! I've been looking for one of those for a while.

green_dragon37 11-11-2003 06:20 PM

Great! I was wondering if anyone had got anything out of it. :D

Hey thanks, fancypiper, your post is a treasure trove, as always.

Do you know, btw., why I can't read out a music CD using the dd command?

How do I copy a music CD to my hard disk using command line?

P.S.: You might want to include the command
Code:

isoinfo -i -d /dev/cdrom
in your list, since it gives some nice information about any source-CDs you want to copy. See also the first link I included in my above post.

for audio cds:-
use cdda2wav or cdparanoia and then encode it using oggenc or something
grip is a good front-end, i think k3b also rips, although i've never used it.

Thank you, I'll try cdparanoia (read a lot about that). And yes, K3b rips very neatly.

But why won't dd work? Can't it get cdda data?

fancypiper 11-12-2003 08:40 AM

dd is for a data CD. Audio CDs have CDDA (CD digital audio) files on it.
