Thread: Ripping isos

    Ripping isos

    I need to know if there's a program I can use in FreeBSD to rip iso images. I need to make a copy of the FreeBSD cd (as you can see in Flea Market). I know X-Cdroast copies cd's but it requires cdrecord and there's no SCSI emulation in FreeBSD as far as I know. If I copied the cd files to my hard drive and did mkisofs, I doubt the copy would be bootable. So is there a simple iso ripper?

    that might need scsi emulation though, but try it.

    you want option number 11, then just use the defaults cept for image name

    Is readcd opensource? I can find the rpm but not the source.

    i installed from source

    i think its part of the cdrecord tools, else maybe cdparanoia tools

    i thought of another thing too but will only work if theres no read errors:

    dd if=/dev/hd? of=foo.iso

    I got it! Readcd is in the cdrtools port along with cdrecord. It can be so hard to find a port for a program simply because it's mixed in with other programs. Thanks for the info. Though this is no longer an issue, dd didn't work (funny FreeBSD) so I tried this:

    cat /dev/acd0c > ~/freebsd.iso

    and it didn't give me any errors. When readcd downloads and installs, I'm going to rip an iso using it and see if they're identical. Thanks for the help.

    Well readcd only supports SCSI drives like cdrecord, so it's useless to me. However the iso I ripped with cat seems to be good. I burned it onto a cd-rw disc and everything seemed good. It was even bootable. So I'm going to burn it to a cd-r and consider it done.
