Making iso files on Linux Mint 10

I was having Microsoft windows XP operating system installed on my desktop. Last night while browsing the internet, my system got affected due to the virus attack and my operating system files got corrupted. I then formatted the system and installed Mint 10 which is a Linux based operating system. My system is working fine. I am a new user for the Linux platform and I want to make an iso file. I need a solution which will help me in making iso files on my Mint 10 platform easily.

Re: Making iso files on Linux Mint 10

You can easily make the iso files from the DVD very easily in Linux Mint 10 platform. To make the iso files you may need to follow the steps given below:
  1. You need to start the system and login into the system as administrator.
  2. If you want to create iso files from the DVD then you may need to insert the DVD into the DVD-ROM drive.
  3. After inserting the DVD into the system you may need to open the terminal window.
  4. In the terminal window you may need to type ?dd if=/dev/dvd of=dvd.iso? and press the enter key from the keyboard.
  5. The iso file will be created and it will be having ?dvd.iso? name.

Re: Making iso files on Linux Mint 10

If you want to create iso file from DVD into Linux Mint 10 platform then you may need open the terminal window by right clicking on the desktop. In the terminal window you may need to type ?mkdir iso_dir? command in the directory and press the enter key. This will create a directory which will include the files that you want in the iso file. You need to copy the file to the "iso_dir" directory. After copying the file you may need to type "mkisofs -o cd.iso iso_dir/" in the terminal window which will create a iso file with ?cd.iso? name.
