i have just beaten SD 2.8.1using a liteon cd writer
i tried CCD and blind read/write without success.
eventually through the forums i was led to alcohol 120%.
what an excellent program, i managed to backup both harry Potter COS and Combat Flight SIm using the default settings.
I’m still a fan of CCD but unless it can be developed to overcome the new protections that i’m pretty sure it will be left behind!
