Thread: DVD to ISO

    Default DVD to ISO

    I inadvertently deleted my copy of openSuSE 11.0 RC1 from my hard drive. I,
    fortunately, had already burned it to DVD. To allow me to use a Delta iso
    to upgrade to openSuSE GM how can I get the DVD back to an iso file. I have
    tried dd and cat but do not achieve the same md5sum or sha1sum as the
    original iso.

    Run isoinfo on the file to get the number of blocks. E.g.

    isoinfo -i /dev/sr0 -d

    Look for the line

    Volume size is: XXXXXXX

    Use this in a dd command:

    dd if=/dev/sr0 of=image11.iso bs=2k count=XXXXXXX

    It is possible that when you burnt it, you had some padding blocks. This will affect the md5sum if you read it off the DVD, but no contents should be affected even if get back more blocks than what you originally had in the download.

    Ken,
    Thanks for the info, as soon as I posted I realized I hadn't tried rsync
    with the iso created from the dd. The copied iso was 4700372992 and reduced
    to 4626032640 after rsync and the md5sum and sha1sum are now correct. Just
    waiting for the GM Delta now.

    You could also just use k3b to make a copy and tell it to only create the iso file.

    I looked at that last night, being late is my only excuse, and there only
    seemed to be a way of copying DVD to DVD. I looked again and it seems the
    created iso resides in a tmp directory prior to writing to DVD. Breaking
    the copy and checking the iso did give the correct md5sum. Thanks again for
    the heads up. As k3b created the DVD in the first place makes sense it can
    reverse the process. With Linux you never stop learning.

    You can also tell it where to save the iso file it creates. I just don't remember my exact steps and I'm at work on Windows atm.

    Can't see the rest of the thread, but considering the subject line:

    dd if=/dev/device/of/dvd/drive of=/path/to/output.iso

    Or...

    dd if=/dev/device/of/dvd/drive > /path/to/output.iso

    Good luck.

    Ok I'm at home now where I can see it. From the Copy DVD dialog, you set the path of where to write the image on the image tab(2nd tab on mine).

    If you deleted the ISOs of the previous beta, don't worry. applydeltaiso
    can also work with the CDs/dvd in your CD-ROM drive. For example, if you
    have the SUSE 10.0-i386 Beta 1 CD 1 in your CD-ROM drive (/dev/hdc), use
    this command:

    applydeltaiso /dev/hdc \
    SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-Beta1_Beta2-CD1.delta.iso \
    SUSE-10.0-CD-OSS-i386-Beta2-CD1.iso
    Copy/paste from
    http://en.opensuse.org/Download_Help#Deltaisos
