The hide CD-R media function in clonecd tray is a cheating function.!!!
Just follow these steps, and you will see:
- try to burn sd2 2.8 disc via clonecd latest version.
- turn off “Hide CD-R Media” function of clonecd tray
- Put this copy in to CD-ROM/DVD-ROM device, we are very sure cd-rom/dvd-rom device cannot get ATIP info, so Hide CD-R media is needed in this case.
- We all know clonecd cannot backup SD 2.8 games, so this copy should not work.
- Don’t get this disc out, just try to turn on “hide cd-r media” function of clonecd tray. and try to play the game again.
Ouch, you see, it works.!!! What hell is this, I need to turn on “hide cd-r meida” function for cd-rom/dvd-rom devices???
This function is a cheating function, it lets you think every copy is 1:1 copy, in fact, it is not.
You can try war craft III too, make a wrong copy with SAO at first, and try to turn “hide cd-r media” on again, you will see it will also work.
What a joke it is? Olli has given up on 1:1 copys a long time ago, since he made the “hide cd-r media” function.
The “hide cd-r media” function not only hides the atip code, but also emulates some protections. It is not good, because you are tricked into thinking you have a 1:1 copy when in fact you don’t, most of the time you just got in the ###### trick made by clonecd guys.
I guess as far as 1:1 copys go CloneCD is falling down.
The “Ignore media type” function in alcohol 120% actualy does pure hide ATIP code function. and always has
