I know theres a ton of info here in the forums about both apps - almost too much to make sense of. I have read up some but I’d like some oppinions.
If I were only going to buy one of the apps - either Alcohol 120% or the CloneCD/CloneDVD/AnyDVD bundle, which one should I get?
I will be using either to backup games - and I tend to try and buy my games on DVD when they’re available. I’d like to be able to make images and not have to use the DVD - I think both can do this?
I’ll also backup some of my DVDs but I am doing that just fine right now with DVDDecrypter/DVDShrink so I’m not sure if this use should come into my criteria for which product to buy?
Also want to backup my audio CDs - not sure if one of these is better at that than the other? I did just buy a protected CD and after messing with it a little, I took a Sharpie to it and I think about any program can now rip or back it up lol.
Alcohol is cheaper - but I don’t think you get free updates for the life of the product like you do with AnyDVD/CloneCD - and if I’m going to buy something, free updates is awfully attractive.
Which is better and why? Do I really need to own both Alcohol and the Clone/Any bundle?
Thanks for any thoughts
Edit: Shoulda mentioned in case this has bearing on which I should buy of Alcohol/Clone, I already own Nero 7.0 - got it free from Newegg when I bought my X2 4400
