A small utility for making archival copies of CDs and DVDs under Linux. It runs in a terminal, and is meant for batch operation. Enter a disc name, pop in a disc, wait, take out the disc, rinse repeat. The script will continue asking for new discs until you hit
There's a lot of duct tape in here, but it generally works. You've been warned.
Pull requests welcome, but please keep in mind that the purpose of this script is archival-quality copies where possible.
You must have the following installed:
eject(shipped by most distributions)
python image.py DEVICE TARGET [--ddrescue]
This is duct tape. It ties together a bunch of existing utilities to automate your imaging. There is no guarantee that it'll work, or even that it'll produce valid images (although it will certainly try). Check the integrity of your images, if you care about your data!
The script is quite noisy; it doesn't try to understand output from utilities, and just passes it through wholesale. All messages originating from the script itself are prefixed with
Don't be alarmed if you get mounting/unmounting/eject failures; to avoid race conditions, the script is quite aggressive in making sure everything is unmounted/ejected when necessary. If you get errors, that usually just means that the disc was already unmounted or ejected.
