Ubuntu Create an ISO image using the command line.

If you’re like me, you have a server or other system which doesn’t have an X system for various reasons. But you want to use all the hardware and create ISO’s or burn dvd’s from the command line for backups or what have you.

In order to copy a data disk or directory I use the following

dd if=/input/file of=outputfile.iso

Ripping dvd’s

mkisofs -dvd-video -o /home/dir/myiso.iso /media/dvdrom
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=myiso.iso
