[QUOTE=roadworker;2765632]Quite impressive backup solution ![/QUOTE]
Have to fight the possibility of hardware fatigue with enough backups
It is all mostly for nostalgia and to not loose knowledge. I do acknowledge that my testbench take all hits apart from Audio CDs and old PC games.
[QUOTE=roadworker;2765632] Perhaps my memory doesn’t serve me well,but didn’t it have problems with Doc.Loc? [/QUOTE]
It does ring a bell, but I think it was solved using a different version of the firmware. I have never experienced anything recently though.
[QUOTE=roadworker;2765632] You mean the GoldenHawk version,right?
Back in those days,I played around with lots of cdr-soft,but 1 of my favorites was the almighty Padus Discjuggler…a real pity they got out of business…:([/QUOTE]
Yep, both that and Cdrdao version 1.2.3 by Andreas Mueller (close to the one found here)
[QUOTE=roadworker;2765632] But EAC still exists,while DBpowerAmp and CueTools came into the spotlight…so,we’re still covered for quality audiorips…[/QUOTE]
True… I will freeze the project at the moment EAC removes support for the drive or Windows XP whichever comes first - So far, the setup has been able to verify rips not present in any database… which is my contribution.
For rescue, eventually focus shifts to that, none of the data ends up in any database, at least not from my hand (I try to redistribute such ultrarare recordings only as files), is any drive’s worth, but ultimately PX-230A usually in cooperation with ISOBuster or UFS 3 as the first base to get the image of the contents before further processing… Audible or bit-/byte-wise - Whatever it is at, I am processing accessible data any way possible.

czary2mary1’s information is interesting… While ‘everyone’ seem to be voicing the bloat opinion when it comes to Nero, czary2mary1 makes an excellent point by presenting the facts using a comparison with IMGBurn which is very common.
It all goes to show that if you tweak the installation and choose only the burn engine, Nero is an absolute no-bloat software by today’s standard
