Creating an ISO File From a CD on Solaris 10

Insert the data CD from which you wish to create an ISO file in the CD-ROM drive. Then issue the command below when the CD is mounted.

mkisofs -r -R -J -l -L -o /dirname/filename.iso /cdrom/cdname

You specify the name of the ISO-9660 output file with the -o parameter. You can include the full path name prior to the filname.

The last argument on the line is the location of the CD you wish to use. When you insert the CD, you should see a File Browser window open with this information. E.g., if I was copying a Slax Linux CD, I might see /cdrom/slax.

You can see the meaning of the other parameters by issuing the command mkisofs -help or by going to YoLinux Tutorial: Burning a CD.

Note: you may have a problem copying CDs using the Joliet format rather than the standard ISO-9660 format. The Joliet format is a Microsoft extension to ISO-9660. It uses Microsoft Windows 95 like 8.3 file names with translation to 64 character names. If you create an ISO file from the CD and get a .iso file that is only a few hundred kilobytes in size, that is likely the cause of the problem.
