Copying directories from removable media?

Forums: 

Hi, I have a CD that has an important exam directory that i want to copy to my Linux Mint box. I subsequently ran this command:

sudo dd if=/media/LPIC\ I\ EC\ 2/ of=linux-exam bs=1 count=100

and receive this error message:

dd: reading `/media/LPIC I EC 2/': Is a directory
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes (0 B) copied, 0.000590019 s, 0.0 kB/s

Thanks in advance..9
