Well,
Know I'm having a look at Alcohol 120% files to see how they store the information.

I'm starting to realise a bit more complexity in this, looking at the alcohol settings. My plan is to still use Read CD, so I'll need to check that it supports the same reading options as Alcohol.

Learning a bit more about copy protections, my first thought that a 1:1 image of a CD would resolve copy protections seems to be faulty, nonetheless, that's why we have hackers. As long as I can capture enough information...
