Make an ISO Image from console

 / Published in: Bash


To make an ISO from your CD/DVD, place the media in your drive but do not mount it. If it automounts, unmount it.

  1. dd if=/dev/dvd of=dvd.iso # for dvd
  2. dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd.iso # for cdrom
  3. dd if=/dev/scd0 of=cd.iso # if cdrom is scsi
  5. # To make an ISO from files on your hard drive, create a directory which holds the files you want. Then use the mkisofs command.
  6. # This results in a file called cd.iso in folder tmp which contains all the files and directories in /tmp/directory.
  7. mkisofs -o tmp/cd.iso /tmp/directory
  9. #for long names use
  10. mkisofs -l -o temp.iso files_to_save/*
