What do you want to do?

dd if=/path/to/your/isofile.iso bs=1 | whateverotherprogram

That would read the file byte by byte and pipe the result to another program, whatever that might be.

dd if=/mnt/disk5.iso | ugur It didn't work. – ugur Aug 4 '10 at 9:05
Did you put also the bs=1 parameter? – Janne Pikkarainen Aug 4 '10 at 9:14
i did. What does bs parameter means – ugur Aug 4 '10 at 9:35
bs means Block Size, and in this case it would have been one byte. Oh well. – Janne Pikkarainen Aug 4 '10 at 9:48
