Backing up

Hey, i have just backed up fm 2007 and installed it on my computer just to see if would work but when i go to launch the game i get an error saying
FM.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close…
can someone please tell me why this is happening?

What method did you use to back it up?

i have a feeling he just copied it the usual way and wasnt aware it even have a copy protection

scan it with copy-discovery and report results


also specify what cd-dvd drives you have,if you dont know exact models use nero infotool (comes bundled with nero,however if you dont use nero just grab infotool from http://www.nero.com/nero6/eng/Info_Tool.html)

I used alcohol image copying. And i did find out the copy protection.
My cd-dvd drives are optaric dvd+rw ad-5540a 102c
The one i used was Aopen com5232/aah 1.09

could you be more specific? what protection does it have exactly? and what settings/speeds you used in alcohol for reading & writing the image?

ok. It has safedisc protection, the reading speed i used was 1x and the writing speed was 4x. write method was raw dao.

key word here is [B]specific[/B] , provide the exact safedisc version & profiles you used for reading & writing in alcohol

Hey, tried it with clone cd, works perfect now. Thanks anyway.
