After searching through numerous forums (including CDRLabs.com) I am not able to find good instructions and suggestions on how to make backup copies of Karaoke CD+G disks.
I recently purchased CD+G Karaoke player and several Karaoke disks. My children just love to sing with Karaoke, but most of you know what that means: buying same Karaoke disk every 1-2 weeks.
It seems like making backup's of Karaoke disks is not that popular, but from what I have been able to read, the best software for backing up is Alcohol 120%. I downloaded trial version of Alcohol 120% and tried to backup one of the CD+G disks on my Optorite DD0203 4X DVD-/+RW drive as Nero Toolkit shows that the drive is CD+G compatible. No success. After reading the CD+G disk for a while on DVD burner Alcohol 120% locks up the system at certain point (usually 5-10% of reading). When I look closely at CD+G disk I can see the spaces between the tracks, probably where the graphics of each song are located, and I think that's the point where Alcohol 120% stops reading the disk. The same reading lock-ups occur on my Hi-Val 48x24x48 CD-RW. I did not try to backup the CD+G with Nero since there is no word anywhere saying that Nero is CD+G compatible, so the Nero most likely will copy the audio part only.
Can someone provide suggestions on how to backup Karaoke CD+G disks? If Alcohol 120% is the only software, why it cannot read the CD+G disks? How can I make sure that my CD-RW or DVD-/+R/W will read and burn CD+G disks?
Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
