I have a stack of a few dozen CD-ROM disks with various files (old software, backup
files, photos). I'm willing to pay a reasonable rate to have somebody read each of
these in, convert them to .ISO files or some other reasonable format, and either make them
downloadable or put them on a thumb drive.
Does anybody know of such a service? I can find lots of services for converting audio
CD's into MP3 files, but nothing that specifically handles data CD-ROMs.
Any leads most appreciated. Please reply directly, as I don't often check this list.
I thought a CD-ROM (data CD) *is* an ISO image. So I would expect all you need to do is
make an image copy of the disk. On Unix systems that's trivial, just use the
"dd" command to copy /dev/whatever to myfile.iso.
