I am installing a new copper line for my new refridgerator with automatic ice maker. My question is: How do i connect the valve to the pipe? I know a saddle clamp would normally be used on copper pipe, but what if I have galvanized pipe and I want to use 1/4" copper pipe. How do I connect that copper pipe to the galvanized pipe?

Your already wrong even considering using a saddle valve.

If you want to punish the building owner and want to and mutilate the plumbing and do not worry or care about leaks or the longevity of the water supply though a very tiny opening then your right on with a piercing valve.

If you care to do a semi skilled job you install a TEE using nipples and a union of the same type of materials OR use a dielectric union and install copper tubing from fitting to fitting with a tee to install a valve by compression, then use an adapter so you can install a reducing compression coupling with a real isolation valve such as a ball or globe pattern type
