It seems to me that some time ago I saw a small program that would allow you to do that. I have read and searched the forum(s) and I don’t see any reference to that program, all the posts deal with blank media.
The reason I ask is because I want to make backups of some NAVI CD’s to use in my car so I can keep the originals in a safer spot. I can make RAW copies using CloneCd but when I put them in the car it says " no CD inserted" even though all the information on the dupe is the same including byte size and name as original.
I have tried burning at 1x with 3 different brands of CD’s but to no avail.
Someone mentioned that Nero can read the dye type but I don’t think it will do it on a CD that is full of data.
Holding the original NAVI CD under a light shows it being almost like a mirror it’s so silver, none of my discs are quite that shiny. I am betting that the laser in the reader can’t get through the types I am using. I had that trouble at one time with a Verbatim DVD but these are CD’s of unknown manufacture.
Thanks to all in advance and sorry if I posted in the wrong area!
