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
