    Is there a list of compatible DVD burners. I want to make a 1:1 image of a protected game DVD but I get the message that my Sony nurner is not compatible with cloneCD, and the profile screeb only displays "Data DVD".

    Can anyone recommmend a suitable drive?

    What's the full error message, and what is the model of your burner?

    That's normal.

    Clonecd is not capable of making 1:1 backups of Securerom and Starforce protected discs. In fact, no program can without emulation.

    You might be interested in taking a look at Game Jackal.

    My burner details:
    Manufacturer: SONY
    Product: DVD RW AW-G170A
    Revision: 1.71
    Can read CD-R Discs: Yes
    Can read CD-RW Discs: Yes
    Can read DVD Discs: Yes
    Can read MultiSession Discs: Yes
    Can read Digital Audio Discs: Yes
    Digital Audio Data is accurate: Yes
    Can write CD-R Discs: Yes
    Can write CD-RW Discs: Yes
    Compatible with CloneCD RAW-DAO: Yes
    Compatible with CloneCD RAW-DAO Write Simulation: Yes
    Supports writing of CD+G RAW-DAO: Yes
    Compatible with CloneCD RAW-SAO: Yes
    Compatible with CloneCD RAW-SAO Write Simulation: Yes
    Supports Buffer Underrun Protection: Yes

    For some reason this time I'm getting "Yes" for the RAW compatabilities that I didn't get before, yet I am still only presented with the option of DataDVD in the profiles screen. I Need a .ccd image that I can mount in Daemon Tools.

    The Disc is Call of Duty 2, I think it has Securerom protection, I thought CloneCD was capable of this.

    Only one profile exists for dvds.

    The help section suggests otherwise:

    Maybe I am just confused and should have use cloneDVD or Game Jackal?

    That's for cds, not dvds. Only one profile exists for dvds.

    Clonedvd is for commercial movie dvds only.

    Game Jackal is an emulator, which allows you to run games without requiring the original disc in your drive.

    I don't see anything listed that says it can write DVDs.
