Carbon CD (formerly CD Manipulator)

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

Carbon CD (formerly CD Manipulator)

#1 Post by pms »

Hi Guys,

I've been using CD Manipulator from my USB drive ever since I started to have problems with the burning software that came bundled with my laptop. Works great, and it's the only free program I've found so far that does direct CD copies!

I think it's not being developed any longer, but still available from:

http://www.storeroom.info/cdm/ [Mod note: v2.70 released in 2004, source available]

It doesn't seem to add anything to the registry, but I'm not as well versed in checking as you guys I'm sure.

Sorry, should have mentioned that although it is Japanese in origin, the first time you run it you have a choice of languages, one of which is English.

Does list Microsoft Windows 7 / Vista / XP and Windows Server 2008 / 2003 compatibility and is open source (BSD). Would definitely like to switch the entry if it does turn out portable.

Excellent. Updated.

What changes did you make compared to the Rizone version? And do you have a download link too?

Mostly cosmetic, since on my XP Pro SP3 it looked nothing like the screenshot (the interface reverted to a 11pt System font), so I had to resource hack the dialogs to Tahoma 8pt font; while I was at it, I changed strings to be less chinglish and hex edited the 'Language' entry in the 'CD Manipulator' menu. Not yet, hence my question...

Old topic update: I never did post my slightly modified CD Manipulator Mod, since there was no manifestation of interest whatsoever. The original CD Manipulator webpage is now gone, but the latest official release (v2.70) it's still available from Softpedia:

Old topic update: OP link for CD Manipulator is still alive; nonetheless, RizoneSoft has taken its own CD Manipulator-Mod and re-hashed into a new program, now called Carbon CD (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1062). I didn't test it, but was rather favorably impressed with the previous iterations, which were natively portable.

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.

@webfork: as the present is Carbon CD official forum topic, please amend OP. Thanks.

I downloaded the ZIP file from here:

The VirusTotal report seems to give the all-clear:
