ClonyXXL is a general purpose scanner and will search for a number of different protections on your CD’s.
When you start the program up for the first time this will be the first screen that will come up. Here you need to select your CD Rom drive and drive letter.
When you have finished you need to click the Nachstes Laufwerk button. Donâ€™t worry about this being in German as later we will turn to English.
Once pressed this will be the next screen that comes up. This screen lets you change the drive letter assignment before going into the program. If there are correct then hit yes to continue.
At this point it will ask you to restart the program. You donâ€™t need to restart the computer just re-launch the program again.
Now the proper program will start up. However it will be in German the first time that you start it up. To change it into English, click on the Optionen/ Tools button.
Here you can change the language to English and set a few other options such as changing your CD drives letters and looking at the tracks on the CD. Hit the English Flag and then go to Scan Options.
In here you can change the way that the program scans the CD. I would set it the options to Look For Defective Sectors and scan every sector. You will also want to Scan Hard Drive For SecuRom New/ ProtectCD5/ StarForce 3 and to Scan For Copy Protection. Also you will want to turn on the option to Scan For Dummy Files. Once you have finished click Apply to go back to the main menu.
To close down the side panel with the options in it just click the Options/ Tools button again. Finally all you have to do is click the Scan CD button. This can take between 10 seconds and 30 minutes depending on what protection is on the CD and if the program needs to scan your hard drive as well.
From this picture you can see that the program is trying to find the protection on the CD. you can see how far it has to go by looking at the Progress Bar at the bottom of the screen.
As you can see I used Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 (RCT2) to test the program and it shows that it has SecuROM new V 4.83.11.0048 protecting the CD. It also gives you a guide to how hard this CD will be to copy. This is just a guide and with newer drives and software can be wrong.
