Alright, so I am trying to make an iso image of a playstation disc, so I can use it more effectively on my emulator, but everything I try, whether it be
cat /dev/cdrom < /home/firesburnsmup/PSX/disc1.iso or
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=$HOME/PSX/disc1.iso whatever I do, it will tell me that
/dev/cdrom: Input/Output error For the record, I am NOT PIRATING! I own this game and want a copy on my hdd. If there's some wierd way to get around copy protection (if that's the problem) I would like to know. I always make copies of my games so I can bring them to school without bringing my systems.
(I felt like I didn't want to get yelled at for piracy on a site I really like ^_^U, sorry about the rant)

For one thing, you aren't doing this command right:
cat /dev/cdrom < /home/firesburnsmup/PSX/disc1.iso
It should be '>', not '<'. I haven't actually tried this, but I don't think it will work even with the correct redirection operator.
This should work better:

well, It got a little bit of data when I do it that way, but still gave the same output after a few thousand bytes. I think it's a copy-protection thing. I don't know how to get around that though.
Are you sure that the disc is clean? Often scratches …
