CreateISO

Create .iso from CD or DVD

This page was last updated on July 18, 2009.

This is a very basic use of the dd command. It asks for the location of the input (if) and the name of the output file (of).

CD

Replace /dev/cdrom with the location of your CD drive and name.iso with the name you’d like to give your .iso file.
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=name.iso

DVD

Replace /dev/dvd with the location of your DVD drive and name.iso with the name you’d like to give your .iso file.
dd if=/dev/dvd of=name.iso


Obligatory Happy Ending

And they all lived happily ever after. The end.
