How to make ISO from file with Ubuntu/Debian


An ISO file  can be used to send multiple files in a CD.

  • You can use the program: mkisofts that creates an ISO9660/JOLIET/HFS hybrid file system
  • The program's syntax is something like this:
  • Mkisofs-0 [filename.iso] [path]
  • The "filename " is the name it will be created in
  • "Path" is the directory to be used in creating the ISO
  • For example:
  • Mkisofs-0 [upload.iso] [applauds]
  • This creates an ISO file "upload" in the directory"uploads"

Second solution

Brasero is the default CD/DVD burning application in Ubuntu

How to create ISO images with Brasero?

  • Hit the Windows key and search for "brasero" then open it.
  • Click on the "Data project" button.
  • Click on the green plus button to start adding files and directories to the image you want to create:
  • Type the name of the disk.
  • Ensure that empty CD/DVD is not in the drive. Click burn.
  • Brasero asks you to choose the name of the location to save the image. Give an appropriate location then click "burn"
  • Burning the image to disk, right click the image then choose burn.
