#REDIRECT [[Optical Disc Drive#Reading an ISO image from a CD, DVD, or BD]]
 
+
Use the [[Wikipedia:Dd (Unix)|dd]] command to create an [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iso_image ISO image] from an optical drive like a CD-ROM or DVD:
+
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/tmp/cdimage.iso
+
 
+
Adapt the command to the appropriate source drive in the ''if'' section and the destination directory in the ''of'' section to your needs. Please note that the /tmp directory is only a temporary storage and will be deleted when you reboot. It is recommended to move the ISO into another directory or initially set the appropriate destination directory in the ''of'' section.
+
 
+
To mount the created ISO image read the article "[[Mounting images as user]]".
