Now some exciting CloneCD 5 news!

Yay !!! :slight_smile:


Wow, good to hear they are catching up with times and meeting more public demand. Soon as they add Securom to the list I think they might be #1 software again.

Have to agree its great to see clonecd heading back up with the rest again…
good work slysoft


Thx 4 the nice and new info, but where did you get it from ?

thx 4 info


“will finally copy safedisc 3.2”

I hope it doesn’t depend on “hide cdr media” running as emulation - emulation free is what we want! :iagree:

Maybe add in a version of twinpeaks…and you’ve got some top software back again. :slight_smile:

No problems Slysoft posted the info in a reply on the AnyDVD sub forum.

I think this is brilliant news, as there has been so many posts asking how to back up Farcry and Doom3 and soon we can have the comfort in knowing good ol CloneCD can take care of the job once again :slight_smile:


umm that is just a link to the CloneCD Beta which has been available to all since late August.

The Beta version cannot currently copy SafeDisc 3.2 CDs and DVDs, and it also has SafeDisc blacklist problems as is uses the CloneCD tray version 4.3.


Really good news PeebZ, CloneCD seems to be back :).

Yeah i’ve always liked CloneCD…im glad to see some worthwhile CD copy protection improvements happening!:slight_smile:

now i become curious… :wink:

can’t wait for the first feedback about copying e.g. FarCry DVD - and HOW the backups works…
does it run on any machine? or has clone-cd to be installed (which would not be so nice, 'coz of the danger of being blacklisted once again…)?

nevertheless - good work SlySoft, gettin’ up to date now… :wink: :iagree:

What i’d like to know aswell is the SafeDisc situation - do the burners affected by 3.20/3.15 become competent SD3 killers again?

Doin some testin’ with Clone:D
