As far as software to use is Alcohol 120% the best and EASIEST to use?
Yes, no, Maybe.
I take it you would like an answer to the answer now.
Some say yes, some say no and the rest say depends waht you are copying.
In this day and age different copy programs seem to be better at copying different copy protections. The same goes for CDRW drives.
I seem to be copying this list all of the time at the moment, but hey.
Alcohol = SafeDisc, Starforce 1+2, SecuROM 4.85xx w/ emulation
Blindwrite = SecuROM 4.85xxx(perfect with Plex Premium)
CloneCD = SecuROM 4.85xxx(CloneCD + Twinpeaks + BWA), Laserlock, Ring Protech
DiskDump + FireBurner = SafeDisc 2.51+
Can't Do = StarForce 3, Tages
This is rough and depends upon your drive.
