I just came across this program when searching other stuff. Has anyone tried it before? How does it compare to CloneCD or CD Manipulator (which it's claimed to be base on)?
Description from the official site:
Use Carbon CD to make backup copies of your music or data CDs. Copy (Clone) most CDs in just a few mouse clicks. Create perfect 1:1 copies or save your CDs to your computer. If you are familiar with Clone CD, you should feel right at home using Carbon CD. The biggest difference between the two is that Carbon CD does not support DVDs yet (Still working on it).
Carbon CD is based on the CD Manipulator code created by Y. Kanechika. Originally in Japanese, It now supports English by default. I upgraded the project from Visual Studio 2005 to Visual Studio 2010 and cleaned the code. I also upgraded all the graphics, worked on skinning, beautified all the dialog boxes and sorted all the bugs I could find. Let me know if you find more.
