I'm trying to create an ISO image of an audio CD using Leopard on my MBP. The purpose is to burn a copy so that my wife can have it in two places at once without transporting it between. I know there may be better technology, but my wife specifically wants CDs. After discovering that Disk Utility has been crippled so that it won't do what I want, I leveraged my prior life as a *nix geek: 1. Unmount CD in Disk Utility 2. dd if=/dev/disk1 of=TheDisc.iso bs=2048 After five minutes of drive spinning, this produces a file of the expected size. However, attempting to mount or burn to another CD gives an error message: "not recognized". I tried several other block sizes, but got nowhere. A hex dump shows that the file starts with a lot of zeroes, breaking into binary data around offset 0x590. I don't know if it's ISO format, but there's definitely some sort of data in the file. What next? Toast? I don't want to buy Toast. As infrequently as I copy CDs, it would be cheaper for me to just bend over and buy an identical CD. I'd like to avoid that purely on principle. iTunes + Apple Lossless? Maybe, but my OCD side wants an exact copy of the whole disc, not just the insides of the audio tracks. Windows? Sure, it would work, but I'd have to call that a Mac switch fail. Copying a CD shouldn't be so hard I have to use another OS. Anything else?
