A short explanation on the subject of sd 2.9 blacklistings.
sd 2.90.040 blacklisted both CloneCD's virtual drive and hide cdr media. The blacklist against the ccd virtual drive is effective so long as that element of the program is installed even if not active.
CloneCD has not been updated since sd 2.9 first appeared so those blacklistings remain effective.
The solution, if you want ccd on your system, is to uninstall ccd and do a custom re-install without the virtual drive component and disactivate hide cdr media. Note that hide cdr media is not de-activated merely by closing the tray icon; you must disable it from the tray icon before closing or it will continue to run as a tsr.
If you only have a writer or other atip reading drive, don't use ccd's hide; use another atip hiding utility such as alcohol's Ignore media type or, if you use blindwrite to make your back-ups, blindwrite's autoplay function (though, of course, that does somewhat more than just hide the atip).
As for alcohol, sd 2.90.040 when first used blacklisted the version of alcohol's virtual drive then in use.
Neither the current version of alcohol nor its virtual drive is blacklisted.
If legally using an older version of alcohol, the solution is simple; just update to the current version. If illegally using an older version and your keygen/crack doesn't work on the latest version (no suggestion that this applies to anyone who has posted here btw), the solution is also simple; buy a licence for the program (so that you can legally use the current version).
