I have two computers at my home, my new one and an older one that I sometimes must resort to if My son or wife needs to use the new machine. I make backups of ALL of my games and applications and store the original CD's for safety.
The Game: Warlords Battlecry 2 (safe disc 2)
The Problem: backup works fine on the XP machine (once in a blue moon it errors out while "reading" bad sectors - just cancel the error and start the game again)
- on the win 98se machine it will not work. I have tried the same backup CD on 1 other XP machine (Brothers) and it works fine. I tried it on 3 other Win 98 machines (friends) and none of them worked.
The new machine: burn done on this machine.
CDrom: Samsung 52E mod: SC-152
CDRW: Plex 24\10\40A Firm 1.02
Media: Fuji 24x CDR 700\80 (greenish blue)
OS: Wind XP pro
CPU: AMD athlon xp 1800+
MB: MSI K7T266 Pro2-RU (Via KT266a)
RAM: 512 DDR
Vid: Gainward GF4 Ti4400 Ultra 700xp
Clone CD - Beta 4.21 (Have updated my version since, but did not try the new version yet)
I downloaded the 1.03 firmware for My Plextor, but I do not like to update firmware (& Bios) unless I know that I need to.
Anyone know why a backup would work on 2 XP machines, but not on 4 98se machines?
