FreeBoot instruction with a detailed description from kim095


Nuance No. 2:

As you know, there are no unsolvable issues, so 2 ways were found for the possibility of creating backup copies of your licensed disks.

The first method is the most complicated and consists in burning the discs “the old fashioned way”, but with the help of certain models of PC drives flashed with the modified iXtreme Burner Max firmware. The disadvantage of this method is the rather narrow list of PC drives supporting iXtreme Burner Max, especially since the firmware PC drives are no longer sold in any distribution network, the only option is to look for stale goods somewhere.

Using Burnermax Payload Tools :

1. Run the program.

2. Insert a blank disc into the drive.

3. Launch BurnerMAX Payload:

3.1 Choosing a Drive in BurnerMAX Payload

3.2 Click "BurnerMAX"

If an error occurs - your drive is not based on the MTK chipset - and does not fit. This operation must be done before each recording. A sample list of supported and unsupported drives by the Burnermax Payload Tools utility:
