Copy bootable USB to DVD

#1 Postby ruel » Tue Apr 10, 2012 1:26 am

Good Day!

I have a bootable windows7 usb and I'd like to copy the content of it to DVD but I have no success using this command from DD, am I missing something please anybody guide me..

This is the detail:

HP mini 2133 laptop
removable DVD+RW drive

This is the command I use:

dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=/dev/sr0 ( Since my usb was in sdb1)
I have no success and Im using this option from dd wiki
dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=/dev/sr0 bs=2048 conv=noerror ( still no success)

This is the output from commandline:
[root@Cybargs Ruel]# dd if=/dev/sdb1 of=/dev/sr0 bs=2048 conv=noerror
dd: opening `/dev/sr0': Read-only file system
[root@Cybargs Ruel]#



This is the DMESG OUTPUT:

It might be simpler to create an .iso image first and then burn it to DVD.

Thanks qtech for the quick reply maybe I will make first the .iso files then burn it to dvd. Just one last question,
if it is possible to copy the usb content directly to dvd? I mean using dd command? if so i'd like to know how....

Maybe not such a good idea, the El-Torito boot code for USB drives is different to the code for optical media.

How to make a bootable ISO?

I would first try a cheat. Find a bootable data DVD, preferrably an Open Source one with the type of boot code you desire, create an ISO image of that, then using isomaster, empty its contents and replace them with what you want, such as the contents of your flash drive, save as a new image, burn to a fresh disk and try it.
