    Here are the results of the methods that were suggested for producing a
    CD image. They all seem to fail at the same place because the resulting
    file is the same size.

    # dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/tmp/cd1.iso
    dd: /dev/cdrom: Input/output error
    1440+0 records in
    1440+0 records out

    # dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/tmp/cd2.iso bs=2k
    dd: /dev/cdrom: Input/output error
    360+0 records in
    360+0 records out

    # cp /dev/cdrom /tmp/cd3.iso
    cp: /dev/cdrom: Input/output error

    # ls -l /tmp/cd*
    -rw------- 1 root root 737280 Sep 17 14:09 /tmp/cd1.iso
