    I'm trying to burn an image with Alcolhol vs 1.9.2 and I have both the mdf & mds file. I get this error when I try to burn..."No RMPS info in the source, you are not able to make a copy using this data type".

    Yes, devilhunt is 'almost' correct. RPMS means 'recordable media physical signature' and means that on the original CD there was a 'physical signature' that, alas, cannot be recorded on the backup copy. But Alcohol, if 'emulate RPMS' is checked (go on Options--->Recording-->Emulation), can emulate it when your CD-ROM unit reads the disc. Alcohol must be ON, on the system tray, though. (Check all options on 'Emulation' though, I suggest).
    Ah, to be sure Alcohol 120% won't give you that error during the image recording, make sure on Options--->Data type setting ---> Recording options, on the dataype you'll select to burn that .MDS/.MDF image, the "Burn 'RPMS' on recordable media" box us [bold]unchecked[/bold].
    Probably it was checked, on your Alcohol 120% Recording options.

    No, devilhunt, you're not at all a newbie. It's us moderators who are too expert (work work work). Ah, I edited a little my post to complete my answer, while you were writing. Maybe you can read more useful infos there, now.

    aldaco12 the box was already unchecked, and all options under "Emulation were already checked.
