Burning in RAW mode

Recommended Posts

Is there a facility for burning CDs in RAW mode? I have seen that you can scan CDs in RAW, but what about burning them, please? Yes, I have looked first :) !

for DVDs

---------

Writing in 'RAW' does what it says on the tin.

It writes the disk exactly as you tell it too.

With/without bad sectors etc.

With current DVD-RW drives,

they only 'allowed' to burn in DOA/96.

The RAW writing mode for DVDs was never made due to a copyright law

 

 

for CDs

----------

To copy a disc in "raw" mode, you need the right reader, the right writer,

and the right software. Programs like CloneCD specialize in "raw" copies,

but require that the CD-ROM drive used to read discs and the recorder used

to write them support "raw" reads and writes. The web page for CloneCD

is a good place to look for a list of capable hardware.

RAW Mode for burning CDs would be awesome indeed.

 

I've been using CDRWin for years and since I changed my drive, the "RAW" option has become greyed-out in CDRWin.

I suspect because support for drives newer than 2010 has just never been implemented in this soft (which is now dead :/)

 

Looking for a solution, I found Alcohol 120% does support RAW mode for my drive and it works just fine.

But I'm otherwise _really_ not a fan of Alcohol and certainly wished I could do the same in ImgBurn instead and ditch Alcohol (lol).

 

I hope LIGHTNING would reconsider a RAW option for Write Mode (at least for CDs!).

Rosanna,

 

There's just no such thing as RAW mode for DVD/BD.

 

Moving to different countries etc doesn't come into it.
