Hello…

I try to do a copy of a game called dogfiht and
after 1 hour the program “blindwrite” has finished
2 % with 1045 ! Bad sectors…

Do CLONE CD have the same problem or can you
set something so it goes faster…

And WHERE can i find a IN_DEEP Manual to CLONE CD…?

Please Help…realy need it…

Most time it`s a hardware problem.

Some CD-Roms or DVD-Roms and writers are not able to jump fast over bad sectors.

You can try Clone CD with the option Bad Sector Scanner or fast error skip but these options only work fast with good Hardware.

CD-Roms with fast bad sector jumping are all Toshiba CD-Roms and DVD-Roms,also all Plextor Devices.

My Plextor Burner needs 3-4 min for a full CD with around 10000 read-errors.There are many other devices that can do also but i prefer Plextor and Toshiba.

Hope i could help you a little bit…

Actually there are only a few hundred errors in the first 10.000 sectors of the disc… :slight_smile: My Tosh SD-M1502 takes about 3 mins to read the entire disc.
