    Question Copy to ISO 11.04

    I can find no way to copy a cd to ISO in 11.04, either GUI or CLI.

    Brasero does not have .iso option though the brasero-cdrkit is installed and is latest version.

    Evidently the /dev/cdrom is no longer used? I'm not sure what's going on there but anytime I try to use dd or cat I get and Input/Output error.

    Can anybody help shed some light for me here?

    Weird, usually Brasero has that option (burn image to disc). However, you can try K3b. Install it (software center or sudo apt-get install K3b). Click onto more actions and select "burn image".

    That should work

    (if it is a hardware issue....well...sry)

    So Brasero SHOULD have the .iso option in 11.04?

    I'm just used to it, referring to older versions of Ubuntu, but unfortunately I can't really check right now, because I'm running Slackware.

    However, if you're still missing the option to burn an iso image, just try out Kb3. (..weird)

    Does your Brasero not look like this?

    Where in K3b is the "Copy to ISO" option?

    Also, Brasero does look as indicated in your screenshot, however, when clicking on copy, telling it to copy to image, then going to properties and selecting the image type, this is what I find:

    Click 'copy medium' button then a dialogue box pops up (see attached), with 'only create image' checkbox.

    Hope that helps....

    So you want to rip a cd into mp3s (or something like lossless if you want crystal quality etc), so you can send them to your cousin?

    Terminology can be a real pain sometimes.

    Re: Copy to ISO 11.04

    I appreciate your response, it is good to be watching for opportunities to help and of course the more eyes watching the better the likelihood that the needs of the Original Poster will be met; but no, I am not wanting to rip a CD into MP3s.

    My intention was to do exactly this: to take an audio CD (comprised of about 16 .wav files of unmastered music), then copy the CD to an ISO image, at which point I was going to make it available for download on my home website that I maintain for just such an occasion (yeah, I'm that kind of dork), thus allowing my Uncle to download the ISO, right click it, and do a "write image to disk", which is super simple, thus, less room for error.

    Instead what I had to do was send him a zip of the files, and have him unzip it, at which point he had to use some other third party program to burn the files into an audio cd. Which ultimately worked out fine, but you can see where right-click -> burn would be much simpler than unzip -> open third party program -> navigate program to burn feature -> burn.

    Also, it is quite frustrating that a common tool for linux users is not being as simple to use (or else I am missing some fundamental step) as it has been for some years previous. Though I'd like to point out that the job Canonical and the Developer Community have been doing is just brilliant. This is one power user's present gripe about one issue.

    I would have been happy to do a Disk Dump, but even dd is failing me at this point. I have tried this on two different machines. I am gathering that /dev/sr0 represents the CDROM based on dmesg output, but I keep getting I/O errors when I try to execute a

    Code:
    dd if=/dev/sr0 of=./test.iso
    So at this point I'm honestly stumped. I can't seem to make a bit for bit image of my discs, and also I cannot seem to point Wine to a cd drive (which prevents me from using, say, Infrarecorder).

    Honestly, I could create an interface to handle using DD if I could just find out what device to point dd (or wine) to that would work.

    I just was trying to avoid saying all of that because it tends to muddy the issue, which is: I can't rip to ISO.

    But seriously, I'm excited about the prompt and informative responses, and appreciate all the attention and time taken thus far.

    AHA (sort of)! Apparently the issue is that I am specifically working with an audio cd.

    I am gathering that Movie DVD's will have issues of there own as well.

    But when working with a regular Data Disc (specifically puppy linux 525) I had NONE OF THE DESCRIBED ORIGINAL ISSUES.

    Disk Dump works, Brasero works, Infrarecorder works (under wine).

    Now I just have to figure out how to work around this audio cd business... I suppose I can mark this thread as solved as I can in fact copy a cd to ISO file now, just not ANY cd.
