Thanks for the help so far. I'm still running into a couple of problems and am hoping that you can help me...
I have successfully mounted the bluray drive as /dev/cdrom and the destination drive (ipod) is mounted as /media/WILLIAM SHU' - in which a subdir of PS3 Games exists...
attempting to backup up the game using the dd command:
dd if=/mnt/cdrom of='/media/WILLIAM SHU/PS3 Games/NBA'
results in the response:
dd: reading 'mnt/cdrom': Is a directory
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes copied
adding a "/" at the end of cdrom (if=/mnt/cdrom/) results in the same response. I tried running man dd, to learn the switches, and it looks like the if switch is used for single files, not directory. I tried adding the *.* to the /mnt/cdrom/ but it didn't work. If I click on the mounted directory (blu ray disc), it shows 2 directories, and 1 file. This seems like I am using the wrong switch. I don't believe that it is a mounting issue any longer, but I am posting this in this thread because it started with a mounting issue, and am not versed enough with linux to know that it isn't for sure. If this thread needs to be renamed, let me know and I will do so.
