John No I do not miss the point you do!!!!
John You say Again I miss the point...We will say that the drive supports SD2 only when it can do it by bare hardware and not with software patches.
There is not a CD Writer on this planet that will copy anything with bare hardware they will not even play CD'S only hardware that uses software will work on a Computer. And how do you work out the Clone CD Amplify Weak Sectors are a software patch untrue it is now an intigrated part of the software not a patch!!!
You Say Users who will read the entire review, will see that with a specific software(s) will be able to overpass it.
Yes very true but only briefly mentioned and never mentioned in the Conclusion which as you must know a lot of people look at first.
You say Maybe with a newer SD2, CloneCD will not work...Then what happens? Will the drive supports SD2 or not??
So please tell me or the manufacturers of software will there be a protection that can't be bypassed you will make yourself a muti-millionaire overnight as you fully well should know there is not protection that can't be beaten. And as for Ollie and Clone CD he is way in front of them he has beaten them every time so why not give him the credit he deserves. And if ever such software protection shows its head there will always be someone to take it off usualy the great man himself.
Now Enough Said
