If you don't want it to barf (and I don't think it hurts if it does barf)

isoinfo -d -i /dev/cdrom

Make a note of "Logical block size" (almost always 2048) and "Volume size"

dd if=/dev/cdrom bs=$LBS count=$VS of=/tmp/foo.iso

where $LBS is the logical block size and $VS is the volume size determined
by the isoinfo.
