Use dd:

dd if=/dev/scd0 of=~/Desktop/MyIsoFile.iso

if=<device>
of=<file to save>

what sort of iso will this create? all packages installed? configuration settings?

dd basically copies over data 1 to 1. Whaveter was on the input device will be copied over verbatim.

I have used dd to backup CD and DVD media and have been able to mount it in Linux using mount. I usually backup purchased CD and DVD media like X-Plane and mount it when I want to install it.

The dd command VH-BIL gave would be my first pick for command line cd/dvd replicating.

Another option is the cat command,


cat /dev/scd0 > ~/Desktop/MyIsoFile.iso
