    Bought copy of Driving Test 2012 and when running it, the laptop drive goes crazy so made a img with imgburn then tried Winmount and Poweriso to emulate it and it detects its copied or emulated. Whats the best software that can beat it? Had a problem like this 2-3 years ago but cant remember which software successfully bypassed it.

    I think Daemon Tools would do this, it has the bypass' for SecuROM and ProtectCD. Here is the link. Just use the free trial for the Lite or Advanced versions.

    I'd argue both Daemon tools or Alcohol 120 or whatever the non-paid version is called. Both have worked well for me, and I can't seem to choose which one is better.

    After D-tools started packing spyware, I switched to alcohol 120. I also hate PowerISO. Alcohol does everything I need.

    I'm not saving the day, just adding my input. PowerISO caused my computer so many problems in the couple months I used it that I hate it. That doesn't mean I'm telling anyone what to get or not, just that I prefer Alcohol 120%.

    Daemon Tools supports a variety of disk images, including the problematic Dreamcast multisession disk images (one data, two audio), GC disk images, heck, even CUE sheet bin images.
