I just couldn't find out how to do this easily in OS-X ... so after a quick Googling I was  D'oh! because it's in the Disk Manager.

Insert the CD you want to copy and then fire up Disk Manager in the applications/utilities folder. You'll see your hard drive(s) as well as a CD mounted. Select the first indented CD - not the root CD icon. This is because the root CD icon represents the device itself, the first indented one represents what's on it. When you've clicked it once, click "New Image" and set the options accordingly.

I'll get started straight away, but the remaining file will be suffixed .cdr - just change the name to .iso and you're good to go!

Or open a shell and type;

mkisofs -o backup.iso /path/to/target/directory/

I remember reading somewhere that mkisofs was part of "darwin", don't have a mac, so don't know. this would allow you to script it and do it remotely though.

lol.... i must be bored...... Jackoff

I think there's a way to do it with dd as well... but that's a creepy function to me...

i think you could also mount a loopback device as an iso filesystem and copy your files directly across....... I think.....

mkisofs is in the fink repository, if you want to go that route.  hdiutil is the native CLI disk utility, so there's probably a way to do it without adding any tools.

A quick search turned this up at MeFi: hxxp://ask.metafilter.com/57440/Cloning-DVDs-on-a-Mac

The summary--

Assuming an unencrypted DVD:

#dd /dev/disk1 ./DiscImage.iso

or:

hdiutil makehybrid -udf -o foo.iso /Volumes/DVDNAME
hdiutil burn foo.iso

The recommended tools for encrypted (e.g. commercial) media were MacTheRipper and DVD2One (the latter to "shrink" it to fit onto a single layer DVD, similar to DVDShrink on Windows).

There's also this hint hxxp://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20040121135301830 on converting .dmg to .iso

I just found a potential replacement for EAC + LAME on Windows (the holy grail of CD ripping/encoding):

h++p://sbooth.org/max/

It's a gui wrapper for cdparanoia + LAME.
