how to make ISO from a data CD


please, help with making an ISO file using cdread (part of cdrecord) . The ISO file should be standard ISO that can be burned with Nero. I know how to create a file with cdread and then burn that with cdrecord, but need to send a real ISO to my lil bro who uses only Nero.

If you just want an iso, you can:
Code:
dd if=/dev/sdX of=the.iso bs=32K
Where '/dev/sdX' is the device for your CD.

I believe that just a dd dump of the entire device would comply. Example:

dd if=/dev/cdr0 of=image.iso

If it is just data then why don't you just zip it??

Anyway you don't make an image with cdrecord exactly you might use this web page for ideas. http://sharkysoft.com/tutorials/linuxtips/cdcommands/

why not zip

it is a cd which has its own viewer for other data on it. it needs to be burned exactly as is in order to make it work on the copy.

dd or other tools in the cdtoolkit ought to work.

I would recommend 'cdrdao', this will generate a .bin and .cue. It is mostly used to clone CDs exactly. You can also use the 'copy' option to clone the CD without a .bin and .cue.
