Hey guys, I just joined up and have to say there is a lot of great information on this forum, and Im so glad theres somewhere like this us noobs can go for help…thanks!
First off, I do not know much at all about backing up games, and I tried searching the forum for my problem and couldnt find exactly what I was looking for, or just didnt understand. :o I just got Alcohol 120%, and was under the impression Id be able to rip the game image to my HDD and actually run the game off a virtual drive(emulating the play disc), without burning the play disc on a CD-R or DVD+R.
Well I tried that with Quake4, and it didnt quite work…it still asks for the play disc. Then I read that I probably need to use RMPS data type for it to work, but when I go into the image making wizard it does not give me the option to choose the data type when I have the disc in the drive, only when there is no disc.
I currently dont have a DVD/CD burner, just a standard Lite-On DVD-ROM, is that the reason why Im unable to use the RMPS settings?? Do I have the total wrong idea about this, and am I doing this all wrong??? I plan on picking up a DVD burner soon anyway, a Samsung SH-S182D, I just wanted to see if that was the reason its not working.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope someone can help me out…
