Topic: dumping programs for linux

Hi there,
Are there any Linux apps that we could use as an alternative to Windows ones?

More specifically Isobuster, EAC.

VirtualBox will be out of the question because it uses it's own cd rom drivers i take it?

For CDs with a single data track cdrdao works fine, likewise dd works for dvds.

For CDs with audio tracks cdparanoia probably works. I haven't actually tested it much myself, but I just tried it now and its output (in little endian mode) seems to match EAC. However cdparanoia appends pregaps to the previous track so you'd have to add/remove them manually.

For Isobuster's sector view function there's cd-read. It seems to work fine for working out the offset, but when trying to get the PVD info, for some reason it only seems to work when you tell it that the track is mode 2 form 2 (even when it's mode 1).

Also the format it gives is slightly different from Isobuster so I'm not sure if the new disc form would handle it properly.

Isobuster:

I still don't know of any Linux app that has Isobuster's "extract from-to" function though.

You can also try to compile the trurip source: http://vigi.dremora.com/trurip_v0_43_alpha_source.rar (maybe someone can make a .deb package for it)
