107 & copy protections

I’ve read in related forum that: “… the only thing a DVD burner is really good for is burning DVDs. Do your research before you buy a DVD burner to backup CDs – it may or may not work for copy protected CDs.”
But StoopidMofo also told: “pioneer dvr range seems very good even for copy protection”. I tried to back-up a Safedisc protected game with Alcohol 120% and my new 107d, but I didn’t succeded. The game installation does not even start, returning an error for a missing dll. Is there anybody who can help me to understand if it was my fault or this dvd-burner isn’t good in backing-up games?

thx

The missing dll looks like the copy was not made correctly. But if you are interested in which protections you can copy with this drive, you might want to have a look at OC-Freak’s review of this drive. Especially have a look at page 8.

Thanx Joerg kling, :bow: I searched in forums for posts about this topic, but didn’t look in main site.
