sorry to correct you but i burn my stuff on a Win2k System and there is alcohol installed. My games run on a W98 plattform and there is no burning software installed.
btw. i thought the hide cdr media is only needed if the cd is in the burner, cause a standard CD-Rom can NOT recognise if it’s a recordable or not.
So my SD2.8 copy runs great using a standard cd-rom without any “hide-cdr media” or other background safedisc faking software.
I know you think Clone-CD is the better tool but my experinces are much better, using Alcohol. Even if the image is a CloneCD image i got better results when finally burning them with alcohol.
