    Question about dd command


    Hello, I am kind of confused with the dd command. One example is that I am trying to make a copy of a removable drive and turn the copy into an ISO with the following:

    # dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=usbcopy.iso

    The result is that when I try to open it or burn it I get and error like this one "is NOT in ISO 9660 format" meaning I can't see open ISO.

    What am I doing wrong, any recommendations ?. Thanks in advance.

    What application are you using to open/burn the file ?
