It should allow you to make a working copy, that is a copy that at least works on most drives and installs on some. It will not install with a drive that can't read twinsectors, such as some Plextors.

There are two main methods, one is to use an old version of BlindWrite, you basically create your image as usual, then create a BWA with the same name, placing it in the same directory as the other image files and burn. Blindwrite will detect the BWA and you will get a message about inserting twin sectors.

BlindWrite however no longer patches burns with twin sectors and the older versions may be somewhat unreliable.

The other method is to use a BWA file to patch a CCD image with twinpeak, this will create a new image (patched.ccd) with the additional needed twin sectors, you then just burn the CCD as per usual.

You may use CloneCD, Alcohol or any other CCD capable burning software to both create and burn the CCD image. For the BWA you can either use BlindWrite's BWA Builder to create a BWA or create a MDS with Alcohol, etc. and then convert.

Keep in mind that such methods do not create 1:1 "Cloned" copies despite what people may say and as I said you will have trouble installing such a copy on certain drives. Also load up times may vary from drive to drive, esp. depending on the twin sector step used and some drives the copy may not load at all.

BlindWrite is available as a free trial, the actual BWA builder program has no time limit though.

There are also various sites where you can download BWA files.
