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.
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?
