  1. Others think it may have had SafeDisc... which sounds about right. But either way - ImgBurn choked on reading the disc with (I believe) a CRC error or some other read error... so it just wouldn't create an ISO. MagicDisc's option to "Make CD/DVD Image" did the trick though. Pleasantly surprising since it's such a lightweight tiny little virtual drive emulator.
  2. Thanks all... yeah, I was looking for a recommended app only since ImgBurn wasn't able to handle the discs. I'm sure there are many out there - I had downloaded BlindWrite after reading some other forums... but lo' and behold - I tried the "Make CD/DVD Image" option built into my current virtual drive emulator (MagicDisc) and that seemed to handle it - but it took HOURS.

I own the CD's... at some point way in the past I made backup images of the discs and used Daemon Tools to mount and play them. I currently use MagicDisc to mount those old images but have been considering an upgrade of my laptop and moving from WinXP to Win7 and may also want to change my virtual drive emulator as well to one that doesn't seem to support the older img/ccd/sub files created by CloneCD (I "think" that what I used to create the ba
