Hum . You want my opinion and some well known facts , go there ( though it was not updated it remains true ) :
Also i assume it's false to say Alcohol is slow and slower
. Of course like Clone Cd it is a software that uses hardware abilities ( but Alcohol uses hardware abilities much better ) . But when it uses DPMS ( it is not used with most profiles ) to know accurately data position it needs twice the time it would have needed . 2/3 Mn X 2 ; poor boy ! 3 Mn more for a perfect image that u'll not be able to obtain with other software . will you survive ? . Securom New needs DPMS because this protection is also based on data positioning .
I use Win XP PRO . I had many problems with burning software and virtual cd but none of them occurred with Alcohol 120 which seems very stable to me
If you want to make the better back up and use all your Lite-On abilities u should better use Alcohol 120 instead of Clone Cd .
But like i always says : do as you want
. If i were you i wouldn't ask anymore and i would give it a try . It is the better way to compare it with Clone Cd .
