    It's already installed, See:
    Code:
    man dd
    for syntax.

    dd actually stands for "Data Description".

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dd_(Unix)

    But is often referred to as disk dump, or data dump etc.

    be VERY careful with the of= (output file) part as it is also often referred to as "data destroyer", or "delete data"

    If it is a CD, I would use the dd command:
    Code:
    Turn a CD/DVD into an .iso
    sudo umount /dev/cdrom
    dd if=/dev/cdrom of=file.iso bs=1024
    If it is a folder use the mkisofs:
    Code:
    Turn a folder into an .iso
    mkisofs -r -o file.iso /location_of_folder/

    Or if you want a GUI, you could try installing isomaster, it's in the "Universe" repo.

    Thanks Eggert. I was looking for this solution as well. Love that so much stuff is built right into Ubuntu.
