    You MUST remember that in order to write a file over 4gb you will need to have an ntfs file system on the disk you're ripping to. I will tell you that Alcohol 120% disk images perfectly (never had a problem) but if it does have copy protection, you might want to find some software along the lines of CloneyXL which will tell you what copyprotection scheme it has so you can search and find out how to get around it.
