Puppy Linux : How to create an ISO image from a CD

Put CD into the optical drive but don’t mount it.

Open a terminal screen (console).

Just to be on the safe side, verify if it is mounted or not with the mount command.

sh-4.1# mount

If CD  is reported as mounted (maybe it was automatically by the OS), use the umount command.

sh-4.1# umount /dev/sr0


sh-4.1# umount /mnt/sr0

Create the ISO image with the dd command.

sh-4.1# dd if=/dev/sr0 of=/mnt/home/image.iso

  • if=/dev/sr0 : Read from /dev/sr0 (raw format)
  • of=/mnt/home/image.iso : write to a file named image.iso
