    Create an iso from a disc in mandriva

    Hey there, i recently installed mandriva 2007 on my laptop. I've now been looking to create an iso image from a dvd.

    After i googled this i came up with a few results but even after downloading the files I'm unsure as what to do next as there is no apparent installer.

    As you can tell I'm relatively new to linux but so far i think its excellent and would really appreciate some help with this.

    The results i came up with were

    Acid rip

    And finally installing dvd decrypter through wine, i managed to get wine installed but couldn't seem to find it in the applications list and I'm unsure as where the alternative of program files are in linux.

    Hi nDrg,
    Your Mandriva 2007 should have K3b for CD/DVD writing. You can create iso image from K3b.

    Good luck.

    try these

    mkisofs -o <dvdtitle> -J -A -V -v -r /dev/<cdrecorder>

    where cdrecorder could be /dev/hdb if its on IDE bus and u have 1 harddrive.

    mount -v

    will give you information as to the name of the cdrecorder. Post your succes s or failure.
