{{deletion|Already covered in another article.}}
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]]".
