This is what I use, and it seems to work well:

mount /cdrom
mkisofs -r -J -R -o mycd.iso /cdrom
optionally mount mycd.iso in loopback mode and check it out...
cdrecord -v -data -isosize mycd.iso

I have also used the following:

dd if=/dev/cdrom of=mycd.iso
cdrecord -v -data -isosize mycd.iso

Beware of special cases, like those combincation Mac/Windows game cds.

Hope that helps.  Good luck.
