While Alcohol 52% version 1.9.5 tells me that it's ripping the 2001 original, Securom protected, version of Colin McRae Rally 2.0 at the whizzing speed of...15KB/sec, or 0.1X , I was wondering if there's anything similar to Kryoflux or Catweasel for optical drives?
I mean, besides not enjoying spending hours trying to capture images of nasty copy protections like Securom and Starforce, I'm noticing several older cdroms are getting harder to read, due either from wear and tear or disc-rot (games bundled with gaming magazines are the worst, they were probably printed using the cheapest discs available).
Is there anything that could ease the task of capturing low level images of problematic CDs and DVDs?
 Yeah, I know, it's ancient - but it's also the latest release available still using a version of the MDF/MDS file format still compatible with Daemon Tools for win9x (3.47) - Useful when you want to avoid stressing the old IDE cdrom drive of your retro pc. And by the way, I have no idea if latest versions of DT Pro/Ultra are still capable of ripping extra data frames like subchannels.
