K3B is a good tool to copy a CD or DVD into ISO. For example, I want to create a backup for Ubuntu 9.04 CD I got from Canonical ShipIt few years ago. I can use K3B to rip the CD into an ISO. I will show you how to do it.
- Insert CD.
- Open K3B.
- Open menu Tools > Copy Medium.
- On Options tab: check Only create image option.
- On Image tab: select your destination folder. I choose my second partition.
- Clict Start.
- Wait until K3B ejects your CD and you get the ISO in the destination folder.
Open The Menu
|Menu Tools > Copy Medium|
Selct Correct Option
|Choose "Only create image"|
Select Destination Folder
|Where to save?|
|Wait The Copying Process|
|You Get The ISO|
If you want K3B in Ubuntu, install it by sudo apt-get install k3b. Remember that K3B is a KDE application so it will pull some KDE dependencies.
