Default How to make an image from a DVD

I seem to have forgotten the flags to create an iso-image from a DVD-9.

I googled around, but all I could find was "how to click in a gui"-linux-tutorials. (Which is frankly becoming more and more even more idiot-friendly than Windows)

Anyone remembering it?

Oh btw, dvdshrink complains about file not found, probably due to lowercase in the mounted dvd. Could I avoid it another way?

dd if=/dev/acd0 of=file.iso bs=2048

Hrm, hydra's post reminds me, there is a DVD chapter in the handbook.
I know what you mean though about only finding GUI tutorials. It's frustrating.

Yeah scottro, there is a DVD section, but the image creation method is not mentioned (no idea why). I will write a short chapter if I have more time.

Creating DVD imagas is the same as creating CD-ROM or Floppy images ... I believe that there is a chapter for one of those (Or at least a FAQ entry...)

Yes, it's the same. But it's in the CD's section. There should at least be a link like "DVD image creation: Take a look at the cd's section"

Heh, even our famed BSD documentation sometimes misses things.

growisofs rulez!
It is in the dvd+rw-tools, and available on *any* *nux *nix even *dows ports.
Same command syntax everywhere.

O'course, you always can install isomaster, k3b, or other toasters.

I think the OP just wanted to copy a DVD. In that case, dd is probably easiest.

Could also be the fastest, as it works at the lowest level, closest to the hardware (just copies bits from the CD/DVD to the harddrive).

Laziness is relative ... one co-worker will spend 3-4 hours working on a shell script to automate something that would take 15 minutes to do manually ... just so he never has to do it manually again in the future. Even if it's something he'd only do twice a year.

True

All I did was copy a DVD to an image and mount it, so I could read it with DVD Shrink and Wine

Actually my mount-syntax was wrong, not the dd part
