    I have been using Blindwrite and now that I see your prices will be rising, I took a look at CLoneCD and tried it out.
    2 things:
    1) With Blindwrite, I have the option to read content from CD and place it into an ISO image on my hard drive. Then, I can burn this image to CD with Nero. Can CloneCD create ISO images as well? I didn't see this function anywhere.
    2) Blind write creates 2 image files. 1 is the actual converted game file and the other one is some small informational file. WIth CloneCD, it creates 3 files. 1 is the image of the game file, another is smaller image (like around 22gigs) and and then a smaller informational one (I call it informational because it is a very small file in size). Why are there 3 images instead of 2?
    3) The interface for Blindwrite is much easier and user friendly. CloneCD, while powerful, needs a different look. Any chance of a user interface change?

    Yes. You just specify (type) .iso as the image file extension.

    There is no norm. You're just coming from an experience of having used another program--and assuming that is the norm. I haven't looked at the image .files in Clonecd for awhile, but one contains image information, another contains, I think, subchannel data, and the other contains layer break info (and possibly other stuff)

    I disagree. It doesn't get much easier than clicking a few times.
