Thread: Cd Cloning

    Could someone help me out with instructions on how to use CloneCd and/or alcohol 120% programs ?????

    I've tried various methods using both these programs and dont seem to be able to get any joy at all....
    I've tried various different original cd's, games etc to copy to blank cd, but still nothing,,,,,do these programs auto set themselves up, or do ya need to change settings etc for various different formats manually ??? I thought it was just a case of clicking the "copy cd" option ???????
    Please advise, cheers,


    P.s,
    Before anyone starts telling me about the rules concerning copyright etc,,,,,hold on,,,,,,,I contacted the Cd companies that produced the disks I'am working with and as far as they are concerned its ok to do what I'am doing as long as I only use the disks for my own pleasure, as I am doing............Once you've bought the disk you've bought the licence too,,,or something like that,,,,,,,,anyway the main thing is that I'am not breaking the law and I'am only asking for advise on using a perfectly legal program.

    If you have a Clonecd version with the option of a virtual clone drive you could try to write an image first, then mount the virtual drive with the image if the software runs you know the image is ok. This could prevent some nice coasters from being made.
    If that works, just burn from the image. I tried some different settings, but I couldn't notice any differences in the burning.
    I only used alcohol once, but I find cloneCD much better.
    If you are still having doubts: http://www.clonecd.net/
    good luck!

    I have used Alcohol 120% to create legal copies of cd's on several occasions .... sometimes they work out ... sometimes they don't. Last cd writer I had did not support RAW mode and was real good at making coasters ... newer one works most times.

    In my experience Alcohol must be configured to match the medium to be burned (especially games). Best info on alcohol is found on their own website in the forums http://forum.alcohol-software.com/ . Not going to give a direct link from here (prolly getting dangerously close to legal questions for this site) but if you look at their sticky threads you will find a link to a webpage that will show you what type of cd copy protection is on what games. Once you have the cd protection info then you will have a better idea as to what setting you need with the Alcohol program.

    thomson1968, you don't know what burner you have? Doesn't CloneCd recognize it?

    Thomas, Clone cd should automatically detect both your cd drives.
    Just open up Clone cd and click the double disk pic and see if they both show up in there.
    So long as they are both pictured there you should be right to go.

    This is how they should be shown.

    Ok, it does show both my reader and writer drive just like you have shown in the picture, but the writer drive still doesnt have a name as i said before, I,E - Its not called a sony or a panasonic, its just listed as IDE-CD R/RW 8X4X32.
