I need to make an image of a cd that can be re-burnt. I know there's ISO-MP3, ISO-wave, Bin-CUE, etc etc... I would prefer ISO-Wave or Bin-Cue capability... but I don't know what's out there for OS X, nor would I know where to start looking.

I can do it fine on my gf's windows machine...but I don't have access to that right now, plus it would be good to know how to do it on my Mac whenever I need to anyway...

If anyone knows of a program they can point me to, it would be greatly appreciated Smile

The easiest way would be to simply make an image of the disc with Disk Copy (Jaguar) or Disk Utility (Panther). It'll save the image as a .dmg file, which you can then burn back to disc. There's no easy way to make an image file that's compatible with both Mac and PC burning programs.

ouch, well that's the problem

ouch, well that's the problem, I need something that will work on a pc... I knew I could use disc copy, but the thing I'm archiving is for development work in an online research community

its not pressing right now I guess, I was just curious... (and i've sorta come to the conclusion that OS X isn't good for anything more than internet...at least for me anyway)

CLI

You could always use the command line tools to do it, such as 'mkisofs' etc. It's included in the cdrtools, which are available here:

There is also a program called Firestarter which is donationware. It will create CUE/BIN and ISO files AFAICT, but I haven't tried it myself:

You can use dd to make a image of a CD that can be burned from just about anything. Just open a terminal and unmount the CD they are usually mounted under /Volumes. Then dd if=/dev/cdrom of=cd.iso. You may need to tweak the device names it has been awhile since I have done it under OS X.
