I needed a .iso but only had the Live CD handy. What to do? This.

Code:
# dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/home/cdimagenamehere.iso

When I need to create an .iso image, I just use K3b.

The function is built into the CD and/or DVD copy feature.

k3b rocks, but I still use dd on occasion. I live at the command line.  Sometimes, it's just quicker.

Yeah, K3b is extremely impressive.  I live in the GUI.  But it's wonderful that Linux allows for both.

It might be quicker to use command line...  One, maybe two minutes.  I'm never in a big hurry.

There's a fantastic line in Carrie Fisher's novel Postcards from the Edge that goes, "Instant gratification takes too long."   Grin

4 Ways to Create CD/DVD ISO Images in Ubuntu

Good article, but I'm not sure why it says "in Ubuntu."  These programs are available in other distros as well.

Probably because Ubuntu is slowly replacing the word Linux, especially for noobs.

Yep.

I've seen a lot of articles that say something like "for Ubuntu only" in regards to some program, script, or fix. Almost always, this isn't true. They're for any Linux distro.

Yeah, it seems to me that we talked about this once before.

The author may also be covering their own bases.  Because the author knows that these methods have been tested in Ubuntu, they will use Ubuntu as the example.  If they say it works in Linux (general) and it doesn't work in all distros, then they end up getting buried in emails from users attempting to correct their original assertion.

I've been trying DVD Movie Backup (a.k.a. Shrinkta):



It's a very simple front-end for creating an ISO image from a video DVD.

Under "Preferences" users have the option of either using the original dual-layer DVD disk format (which preserves the full video quality) or the smaller single-layer DVD format (which "shrinks" the video down to fit the disk size, but also reduces the video quality to about VHS quality).  Hence the name.

It also gives you the option of copying the entire disk (menus and movie/feature) or just movie only.

Don't be fooled by its small size.  This is one handy little ripper.

The program is available in most repositories.

Ripping DVDs in Linux with OGMRip

There are other formats that a ripped DVD can take.  This one defaults to Ogg Video, but there are other formats.

The advantage is the new format can be played by most media players without having to mount the ISO image first.  You can also rip select chapters rather than the entire disk.  This comes in handy when dealing with multiple TV episodes.  And the smaller individual files can be easily backed up to optical disks.

OGMRip can be found in most repositories.

When I first saw this post, I was thinking something like "how do I create a live image ISO from my standing system." When I was looking through the thread, I realized this wasn't the topic at all, so I dropped it.

Well, today I stumbled on this link, and for some reason, I thought of this thread.

http://www.ubuntugeek.com/create-custom-ubuntu-live-cd-with-remastersys-in-karmic.html

In theory (if it still works with the latest-and-greatest version), this will create a live DVD of your currently installed system. I will test it when I get my system upgraded/installed, with all of the packages installed and configured. If anyone cares, I can report on how it worked.

I've been transcoding with OGMRip and have been very impress with the results.

A full-length motion picture that takes up a dual-layer DVD can be reduced to about 600 MB using the DivX compression codec.  This is a lossy compression process, so the final product is not as high quality as the original.  However, the quality is still very good and rivals broadcast television or VHS quality.

DivX is to video what MP3 is to audio.

This is great way to carry a small library of movies or TV shows on your laptop without having to lug around a stack of disks.

And if hooked up to a large screen flat-panel monitor, they look even better.

Thumbs up for OGMRip!

I just found out something cool the other day.

My DVD player will play a burned disk with DivX encoded files created on Linux.

Bonus!
