Thread: The use of Daemon Tools.

  1. #1

    Default The use of Daemon Tools.

    It takes an idiot to miss that you do NOT support the distrubution of games, wares and movies. And that you strongly dislike that Daemon Tools is being used to unpack games. So what was Daemon Tools made for in the first place? Just curious.

    Judging by the amount of warez posts we get, it seems that many idiots vist here.

    Daemon tools is intended to allow images to be emulated as cdroms. You can make backups of images through many tools such as alcohol 120, clonecd, blindwrite, etc...

    Venom386 can maybe give you more info about origins of dtools.

    So I can use "Alcohol 120" to make, for an example, a back-up of my Windows XP CD-Rom and then via DAEMON Tools browse all the files on the CD without having to use the actual CD-Rom? I don't mean to be rude but it seems that it is perfect for wares. :-/

    Hi,

    for my part i use DT to emulate a physical cd-rom drive to avoid using the actual physical drive. My notebook for instance has a slot where i can mount the cd drive or a additional battery pack to get longer working time. So i use DT to get more time to work with my notebook without power supply.

    Besides, i also use DT to copy my original game into an image on my hd and put the original cd back in the box and on the shelf. Its just extremely more comfortable to handle image files than shifting cds in and out the drive.

    Regards,

    I don't wanna sound rude, too, but do you really think it's a good idea to forbid all knifes? They are perfectly designed to be a lethal weapon.

    Or a Photocopier? Perfectly designed to copy authorized materials. Or Scanners. Or CD-Burners (Come on, did you really have enough material that doesn't fit on 3,5" Floppy? )

    After all, it depends on the user itself(!) if a tool is dangerous or helpfull -
    A compiler can compile malware - but also such wonderfull things like
    Games, Applications, etc.

    What you do with Daemon Tools is after all YOUR decision. But WE don't support Warez. And BTW: Only original Source supplies Daemon Tools with needed Signatures.

    Think about it

    Regardless, it's a powerful tool and it's helping people all over the world. It's a fine software and you should be proud.

    LocutusofBorg:

    I didn't mean that it should be forbidden, just that perhaps you should code som sort of "barrier" in it. For an ex; ban all watermarks (-DEV, -FLT, etc...). I don't know. It's just a thought. But as I said, damn fine software. Keep it up.

    :mrgreen:

    Really, is this meant serious? Maybe then Plextor and liteon should
    change some code in CD-ROM/Burner Firmware, so nobody is able to burn
    such "watermarked" CD's.

    I for myself didn't like such "TCPA"-Methods, we should leave such behaviour
    to Microsoft and other companys.

    The Point is:

    If someone use warez instead of PURCHASE the products he "need", then even a Copyprotection isn't able to easy persuade him. Moreover he hurt the
    companys which produce the software/games he want, it's like killing
    what you love. But after all, this is still a free world, we're not the
    "Software-NSA", if someone haven't enough sense to see the consequences of hurting companys,
    then I'm sure additional restrictions can't change his mind.
    The best we can offer is leave this guys alone, if any probs occur.
    We can discuss this endless as this problem is as old as commercial software
    is available. I'm not the youngest anymore, so I know what I'm talking :wink:

    btw: I visited your page - seems that we like the same music you should add Velvet Acid Christ to your list (otherwise, give it a try) or Funker Vogt or Hocico

    I hope you bought all the movies, otherwise it's the same like use warez - you know the DMCA, do you? :lol: :lol:

    Going to see Hocico live in about 3 weeks. VAC is good but I still haven't found a CD with them in the town I live. It's almost impossible to get a hold of alternative music here. That's why I have to download mp3s.

    Most movies are "back-ups" from my own DVD-collection. But by downloading different movies I've found tons of movies that I like. And I've bought a lot of them. So the compaines have made more money on me that way.

    And I'm *beep*ed up tired so excuse my spelling. :-/

    I'm not against the use of warez, as long as you buy the product if you find it useful. Which I do.

    DMCA? o.O

    Hi,

    I registered just to answer this post.

    Situation:
    Mechanic garage
    Mitchell1(software to reference domestic/import specs)
    3 PCs(98/ME/XP) on Fast Ethernet network.

    Mitchell1 sends out updates via DVDROM and CDROM.

    Mechanic garages are dirty places, and mechanics are dirty people(on the job heh).
    My customer didn't want to risk destroying the data from dirty hands, grimy desks, etc with switching media.

    Daemon was the perfect solution!

    If the authors lived in my city, I'd talk my customer into giving you guys a free tune up.

    Thanks for a good product.
