If you are going to use the liteon as your reader then you should use bw 4.2.1 but when the plextor is your desired reader you can use the current version 4.2.3 without any problems. there should be no problems.
first of all you should create an image of the game you want to copy. second step is to create a bwa file of the original disc of the game. you can do this by using the bwa builder which is placed in der blindwrite directory and called “physical cd characteritic dumper”. the bwa file should have the same name as your image and should be placed in the same directory.
then start burning
or just read the how to bwa doc located in the blindwrite directory!
hope this helps!
BWA format describe the media local density, which is roughly how many sectors fits in a given diameter
The variation of that density is used by some copy protection scheme to make the difference between an original cd and the copy
Blindwrite suite is the first copy tool able to fully extract and reproduce that density variations - thus is the first tool able to produce 1:1 copies of the most recent protection schemes.
How to :
1 - Extract the image of an original CD - subcodes extraction is not mandatory
2 - Extract the media density table, with the provided tool, BWABuilder
Please note :
- BwaBuilder is a tools with a timing precision of about 6 ÂµS, which make it VERY sensitive to CPU load. When BwaBuilder run, avoid any other operation on your computer
- BwaBuilder works better with SLOW extraction speed, and without the screen refresh during extraction
- BwaBuilder may fail completely on some drives - and produce wrong curves. Usually, a nice looking hyperbolic portion with up to 4 zones of “squarewaves” area are a good sign. A few glitches are still acceptable.
- dumping the table may take long time, up to 2 hours.
3 - in BwaBuilder, save the BWA file in the same folder as the blindwrite image file (BWI), and use the same base name. E.G., if you have extracted SAMPLE.BWI with Blindwrite, save the density table as SAMPLE.BWA in the same folder.
4 - Use Blindwrite to write the image file, use a DAO PW writing mode (preferred), or DAO PQ (not extensively tested to date)
5 - Insert the burned cd into a CD READER ONLY unit (not a writer, or use a ATIP hiding driver, like Insektors or CloneCd tray). The cd shall be identified as the original.
And don’t forget to play only copies of CD you have legally purchased…
