If you have wondered how to create an iso from the command line, it is very simple. You just need to use the following commands:
mkisofs -o <name of iso>.iso <directory to be iso>
To burn an ISO from the command-line many people do a DD, this doesn’t always work since it is technically not the correct way to do it. To do it the proper way you would need to run the following commands:
- Determine the Device ID number by running the following command:
* The device ID number will be x,x,x on the row which lists the CD/DVD drive you will be using.
- Next you will want to do the actual burning of the ISO to that device using the following command:
cdrecord -v dev=<Device ID from the scanbus command> <ISO to burn>.iso
