CloneCD author makes the big step…


Today a new CloneCD version released that contains 2 very interesting features that will make many users happy…

- Added "Amplify Weak Sectors" option! (not available in USA and Great Britain)

This new feature can be used with all non-SD2 capable recorders in order to create FULLY SD2 working backups.

As CloneCD author explains: "...Some CDs may contain "weak" sectors, which can't be written correctly by several CD-Writers. If this option is checked, CloneCD will modify these sectors in a way the writer can write them correctly. The error correction of any CD-ROM will revert these sectors to their original state. It works similar to the technique we have already seen in BetaBlocker, but with some improvements, like a better and faster recognition of the "weak patterns". This "amplification" is done while *writing* on the fly without any major CPU hit!)..."

This new feature is not available in USA&UK due to the local laws. The UK doesnt seem to have something similar to DMCA but CloneCD author believes: "...I am not a law expert, but the UK has close relations to the US and I was advised to leave out these options for the UK. Better safe than sorry...".

- Added Option to "hide" CDR Media from applications (not available in USA and Great Britain, not available on Windows NT4)

This features not only hides the ATIP of a CD-R but also PMA and disables subchannel checks. Both SecuROM 2/SafeDisc 2 versions check for SubChannelData/ATIP information. This has been fixed with this new build.
------------------------------------------------------------------

PS. USA/UK visitors can try the 2 new features either by simply changing regional status with another country or trying:

1) Search the Windows registry for "AmplifyWeak" and then enable by entering 1 instead of 0.
2) This enables this optin permanantly. You still won't have access to the check box thru CloneCD but you could easily disable by doing the above reg fix in reverse.
