Running the windows or the linux version?
Command line -> dd if=/dev/[cdrom] of=/home/user/[file].iso
This makes a copy of the disc in iso format.
[cdrom] should be the device ID of the drive...just type mount to find a list (I asume it will be automounted)
[file] is anyname you want...just don't use spaces...
To watch: mount the image.
mount -o loop [file] /mnt
/mnt can be anywhere, but since /mnt was invented for this purpose...why not use it
Fire up your dvd player program and just browse to the /mnt folder if it doesn't already see it (should work fine)
Can you tell I'm a linux geek?
