It’s not possible to backup an audio CD as an iso image. This format is for data CDs.

You should use cdrdao.


cdrdao read-cd --read-raw --datafile FILE_NAME.bin --device /dev/cdrom --driver generic-mmc-raw FILE_NAME.toc

Under Ubuntu, you can use Brasero with “CD copy” mode. ps axf shows us the command Brasero is using:

cdrdao read-cd --device /dev/sr0 --read-raw --datafile /home/dooblem/brasero.toc.bin -v 2 /home/dooblem/brasero.toc

Note: there is a Brasero Bug in Ubuntu Lucid with cdrdao.

  1. Awesome insight. Now to write a simple shell loop to continuously back up a CD collection and test the media … has anyone done this?

    And the next shell script to recover and burn the CD collection?

    Anyone have the shell script lying around?
