"I had a Debian GNU/Linux cd-rom that I had purchased over the internet. Loving Debian and having a cd-recorder, I wanted to make copies of it."

"This is a revised article. The first version, as more than one person pointed out, was incomplete and therefore misleading. We'll take a look at 3 different ways to make a duplicate of an existing cd-rom disc."

"The first method will be using the dd command. The second method will be using the mkisofs command and the third method will be using the cdrdao program. dd and mkisofs are used generate an iso image of the cdrom disc we want to duplicate and then the cdrecord program will take it from there. The cdrdao program performs the role of image creator and image burner, as we will see."
