I'm so sorry Aldaco...I should have tried clonyxxl, but i was so frustrated & depressed because i took a long time to get these images and i thought they would be corrupted. Anyway Thank you very much, for i scanned the image & found it was really protected, but i have a little question please if you don't mind: Could i remove the protection without burning the images on CD's e.g.(virtual drives)? If yes or not How could i remove the protection scheme knowing that it says safedisc ver 2.7? Thank you very much for your great help.
