I can’t recall the last time I needed to convert a CD to ISO. I have four laptops and not one even has a DVD drive. It took me a while to find an external drive and remember how to do this.

To avoid having to deal with this nonsense the next time around, I wrote a little helper script. I was running it in Elementary OS VM under VirtualBox on Windows 10. Because the VM is rather small, I have the script mount an NFS share and write the ISO to it. You can certainly make this a local directory, if space is not an issue. The script is also available on my GitHub repo.
