Problems copying a CD


I've been trying to copy a CD, so I did:

dd if=/dev/hdc of=~/image.iso

And without paying attention tryed to burn the cd, and discovered: Oh, no its 2GB in size! So, i'm guessing this is a copy protected CD. Now before I start off a big piracy debate it is what most would describe as an "abandonware" game. So, any ideas?

Why don't you make an iso file?

I did, but it ends up at 2Gb, which isn't any use to me.
