Default Need help for making 1:1 images of PSX discs (w/free software)

I know how to make ISO images of discs, but those aren't always 1:1 copies. I know about software like Alcohol 120% but I'm cheap :-P Anyone know how to do this with free software?

While I'm on the subject, is BIN/CUE a 1:1 copy?

Give <a href=http://www.isobuster.com/>Isobuster</a> a try. That's what I use. Make sure you extract RAW of course.

Cool. <img src=smilies/cwm11.gif> I'll have to download this and try it. It looks like the important stuff is free.

if you mean 1:1 as in, an exact copy of the disc that will boot on a PSX without a mod chip, (factory made) boot disc, or swap trick, this is impossible. Otherwise, use CloneCD. For all intents and purposes, BIN/CUEs are as close as you're going to need to get, although there was some (extra) copy protection technology added to some games like Medival called LaserLock or something. This requires you to use software like Alcohol 120% or CloneCD and to have a drive capable of the task (which is most, now, I do believe). Alternately, you can make a BIN/CUE and apply a crack to it, which will disable the copy protection. I have not heard of anything that's free that can do exact copying, although I bet there's something for (at least) Linux that does it.
