Get your Freak on! Crazy Clone CD :-)

#1

Can´t seem to get Clone CD, it really behaves strangely sometimes.

Been trying to make an image of Diablo 2 CD 2 (Playdisc, protected with SecureROM new).

I wan´t to bench this reading but Clone CD keeps actin up on me.
Sometimes it takes 04:50 to read the disc and sometimes it takes 02:44.

It´s hard to get a grip on since there´s no pattern either, sometimes it´s fast and sometimes it´s not..

any ideas?

CloneCD 4.0.1.9 fixes writing of unreadable CDs with WAITEC STORM24 in SAO-RAW+SUB mode.

Perhaps you should tell Ollie if you’re having further problems with the drive?

Well, it´s the Waitec Storm 32x I´m using…

Any luck yet, Chosen?

Hi there futureproof, don´t know if you remember ALL my problems with this drive and Clone CD :wink:

Anyways, after moving the unit to a new system everything works (no error messages when cloning) but as you can see I´ve got other problems now…

Can´t seem to understand this, since it sometimes take 2:44 minutes and sometimes 4:50 minutes…

Can´t find any pattern for this either… =(
