CD Burning Question

I have what is supposed to be an image file to burn into a CD. The file ends with *.ccd. How can I turn this into an ISO file or a or .cif so I can put it on a CD.

Thanks in advance for the help I’ve gotten from this B. Board.

It apparently stands for “clone CD” image format and is a product of a burning program of German origin called (un-surprisingly) CloneCD. It is apparently used mainly for burning otherwise uncopyable protected images that other image formats and burning programs cannot handle.

You need the program to burn the image.

“CloneCD is a powerful CD-Copy program. It writes in Raw mode, which allows it to have total control on the data written. Therefore, CloneCD will produce real 1:1 copies of your CDs”

CloneCD is a CD Replicator. It is no Mastering Software. This simplifies the usage of the program.

"CloneCD from Elaborate Bytes ( is a new CD copying program which makes a 1:1 copy of a CD. CloneCD images have recently started to appear in the existing image groups.

However, a couple of issues make CloneCD images different from the traditional ones:

  1. Whereas CD images in traditional formats, ISO, bin/clue, etc., can be burned with ALL traditional software (straight or through some conversion), CloneCD images can ONLY be burned using CloneCD software.

Because the other Image Software is incapable of defeating the new copy protection methods that are currently being used. Thus we must resort to “Hacked” exe’s and such, which to me are closer to being “Rips” than “Images”…

  1. Whereas traditional CD images can be burned with ALL currently available drives (straight or through some conversion), ONLY certain drives are capable of burning CloneCD images.

The list of drives that can use CloneCD is rather impressive, Only the older model drives, and those incapable of reading the sectors that hold the copy protection are incapable. If you can’t use CloneCD it
sounds like it’s time for an upgrade to a more modern $200.00 burner…"
