Version 184.108.40.206 18 April 2001 (beta release)
This is a completely reworked CloneCD. It is better, faster and more reliable than any previous version!
Major redesign of all functions.
"Copy on the Fly" added, including copy of Subchannel Data, ISRC numbers, Catalog Numbers, CD+G, CD+Midi, PreGaps and Indices *WITHOUT* the need of time consuming "Subchannel Scans" before the start (requires DAO-RAW capable writer).
Own Memory Allocation, which prevents Windows to "swap out" buffers. This works with Windows 9X/ME and Windows NT/2000!
Error skipping with several CD-ROMs or DVD-ROMs (e.g., TOSHIBA) up to 3 times faster!
CloneCD can be launched several times. If you start CloneCD several times, you can write the same image file on different recorders at the same time!
Added optional creation of "Cue-Sheets". "Cue-Sheets" can be used to process images created with CloneCD with many other CD-Writing applications, e.g. Nero.
Added option to abort on read errors.
Some options which only confused people have been removed.
Improved SAO-RAW mode. SAO-RAW mode can now copy MultiSession, CD-Extra, ISRC Numbers, Catalog Numbers, Gaps and Indices.
Added "SAO" (without RAW) mode, so the "rest of the MMC CD-Writers" is now supported as well (SONY CRX-100, HP8100, Toshiba SDR-1002, just to name a few)
Redesigned File I/O.
All I/O operations are now timed to prevent, that CloneCD "hangs" forever.
Redesigned UI. Easier to use.
All functions can be controlled by the keyboard.
UI improved for blind or visually impaired people.
Added "Wait for Disc Insertion" Sound.
Demo Version now writes at full speed and saves all settings.
Demo Version is restricted to 21 days of trial time.
Locale Editor allows you to create your own localized CloneCD version.
Language can be switched "on the fly".
Added "ccddriver.dll". If support for new CD-Writers is added in a future version, only this small file needs to be updated.
Many more CD-Recorders are supported, e.g. ACER CD-RW 1208 including CD-Text / CD+G writing and Seamless Link, AOPEN CRW1232-A/Pro including Just Link, NEC NR-7700A including Burn Proof, RICOH 7125 including Just Link, SANYO BP1500 and SANYO BP5 including 24x writing and Burn Proof, just to name a few.
Compatibility fixes and improvements:
Hardware requirements updated.
Fixed page locking bug in ElbyCDIO driver for Windows 9x/ME.
Fixed bug in Setup program, which caused the ElbyCDIO driver not always to be updated correctly.
Many minor bugs fixed.
