ClonyXXL 2.0.1.5

Find out the kind of protection that is used on a disc
ClonyXXL deals with detecting the protection scheme that resides on a disc. This small and portable utility is packed with complex and reliable algorithms that manage to identify the DRM protection that prevents you from ripping its content.

By detecting the type of scheme that’s protecting your CD, you will then be able to get your hands on the tools that can make the CD files accessible. Besides, ClonyXXL features support for detecting the most popular protection products, such as SafeDisc, DiscGuard, SecuROM, LaserLock, ProtectCD and CD-Cops to name the most important ones.

ClonyXXL doesn’t need installation, since it’s a portable application. This means you can run it from a removable drive, without it affecting your computer’s registry. Its interface is quite pleasant and colorful (the background can be changed to various colors); the default language is German, but you can easily switch to English from the Options menu.

Usage is quite simple too. First, you are required to load the CD of interest and configure additional options. These include searching for bad sectors (you can select to scan each sector or every second, fifth or 10th), scanning for dummy files and actions to be performed before/after the detection process is finished.

If you want to skip these steps, a Scan Wizard is available. This utility guides you through the steps that lead to identifying the protection scheme and closes itself once the process is over.

All in all, ClonyXXL is recommendable if you own a CD that is protected by an unknown scheme. Once that scheme is identified, you can start processing the content on that particular disk using dedicated tools. Bear in mind that ClonyXXL does not provide the means to rip CDs or perform any kind of modifications on the CD’s content.
