Elby Updates CloneDVD, Virtual Clone Drive
Elaborate Bytes has just released CloneDVD v22.214.171.124 and Virtual Clone Drive v126.96.36.199.
Virtual CloneDrive V188.8.131.52 newly added a "read physical DVD
Structure" command. Also it can now use Layer Break position from
CloneCD images. The added /u command line option enables a user to
unmount an image. And the /d command line option may be used to
specify the drive-number (e.g. VCDMount /d=1 ). By updating
from an older version of Virtual CloneDrive the letter settings for
the virtual drives will be preserved.
Some minor fixes and improvements and some changes in the language
files complete this new version of elby Virtual CloneDrive.
This new version may be downloaded on www.elby.ch, for free.
In addition, the company updated the popular CloneDVD software. CloneDVD V184.108.40.206 now supports Windows Vista. Additionally it now
handles better som badly mastered titles. And the new feature
"automatic read retries" (20 times) allows copying of scratched
movies. The user may now choose CD-R in the size selector (previously
there was "Mini DVD" which confused people because of 8cm DVDs were
known as "Mini DVD" as well). The size of Mini DVD has been changed to
1.4 GB (the size of a 8cm DVD-R media). The new version also supports
DVD-R DL writing (earlier versions only supported +R Dual Layer
