I heard that Alcohol has a hidden feature that will allow reading the pregap area of a cd. (Perfect for SD 2.8+).
So I investigated and this is what I found:
Open a file called Axtype.ini (located where you installed Alcohol) using Notepad. There is a list of all the profiles used in Alcohol with each profiles settings.
Here's a Screenshot
Apparently, DiscJuggler is the only software at the moment that can do this, so maybe Alcohol can do this now too.
So here's a couple questions I have:
1. If the value of "0" is changed to a "1", will this enable Alcohol to read/write the pregap area?
2. How important is this pregap? (Fireburner has worked fine for me so far as it writes its own pregap)
I just thought I'd share my curiosity with everyone else here!
Any ideas or suggestions would be great! Thanks in advance.
