Until recently I could use BlindWrite (up to at least v4.4b) on my old Win 95 (OSR2) PC with no problems.
I could write at 8x (to a non-BurnProof drive), even though the PC’s CPU is only a 75Mhz Pentium.
Now obviously that’s slower than the supposed minimum requirement for BW. But everything worked fine.
Since updating to 4.5.x (I think I tried 4.5.2, the latest 4.5.7 is the same), BlindRead still works fine. But BlindWrite quits immediately; it doesn’t even open its window.
Do the later versions of BW check CPU speed and quit if it is too slow? I think that’s a really bad idea, because slower systems are easily capable of writing CDs. If that is the case, can anyone help me in figuring out how to patch BW 4.5.7 to bypass the CPU speed check?
Does other CD imaging/backup software have artifically-imposed system requirements? I’m looking at Alcohol 120% at the moment, if I can’t get BW working again.
