What purpose does ElbyCDFL.sys serve?

    CloneCD only appears to need ElbyCDIO.sys to run, so what purpose does ElbyCDFL.sys serve? Is it required to read or write discs?

    I'm trying to slim down the drivers that are loaded on my computer and am hoping I can ditch ElbyCDFL.sys.

    If you're going to start changing the way Clonecd loads or is intended to work--you can pretty much expect the program not to work properly.

    If you want specific answers you will have to wait for a developer to respond to your question (and I'm not sure they will be extremely forthcoming).

    This file from what I can is a filter system file (hence the FL in the filename). Obviously its used for a reason and I would never stop this file from running on your system, its required for reason.
