Additional notes

As stated in the video, unfortunately a lot of commercial software that was distributed on optical media has copy protection. This protection is designed to prevent the user from copying the contents of the disc either to an image file or a blank CD/DVD. In most countries the copyright laws allow you to “format shift” your media in this fashion, but in many countries (such as the USA) there are extra provisions in copyright law that forbid any kind of copy protection circumvention even for personal use. Due to these restrictions we cannot provide tutorials on Alcohol 52%’s circumvention tools, even though there are perfectly reasonable and often legal reasons for using them.

Remember that irresponsible use of tools like Alcohol 52% threaten their continued existence, so always use them within the copyright laws.

  1. Why do I get 2 image files every time I create an image? They created at the same time but one is bigger than the other. Do I need both images for it to work or can I delete the smaller file and just keep the bigger one?



    • You should keep them both.
