Hello folks. Differently we have done in How to make a ISO from files in Ubuntu 11.04 where we created a ISO from a directory, here we will do a ISO from a CD/DVD and also will be used the command dd instead of mkisofs. I know that, there are others softwares that can do the same task such as K3b, but I prefer to show this way because we can use that to make some script to automatize many tasks.
To do that is simple and easy. Put the DVD in the drive, open a terminal and type:
dd if=/dev/dvd of=dvd.iso
The command above create a ISO from a DVD, now let’s create for CD:
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd.iso
That’s it. See you next time.
