CloneCD / Beta

The ideal CD copy tool to create safety backups of your music
CloneCD is a tool that you can use to copy the content from your CDs, regardless of the copy protection and type of information that is stored on them. This kind of software is especially useful for creating backups in case you lose or damage the respective discs.

CloneCD is also able to process encrypted DVDs. It performs 1:1 copies of the content, while completely disregarding any DRM (Digital Rights Management) restriction that might be coming in its way.

After a short installation process, you will see how simple the interface is, approachable by both beginners and expert users. The main menu allows you to select from four options: read to image file (from a source CD), write from image file (to CD reader), copy CD (from CD reader to CD writer), or erase CD.

In addition, you can choose from five profiles - audio CD, data CD, game CD, multimedia audio CD, and protected PC game.

The Settings section of CloneCD provides users with options for sounds (for a successful or failed task; or insert a particular sound), enable auto-play for data or audio discs, adjust buffer size, and others. A log file can also be displayed to help you keep track of the progress made.

All in all, CloneCD is a respectable tool for creating CD / DVD backups, even though the content is encrypted or protected by DRM. It overcomes weak sectors and outputs a qualitative copy of the original product without taking a toll on system resources.
