Battlefield 1942

I can make a good copy of Battlefield 1942 and it will run fine, but as soon as i update it to version 1.2 or later the backup suddenly won’t work anymore, but the original cd still will. Anybody else having this problem or know how to fix it.

Any info is appreciated, thanx

Burn it using Alcohol or fireburner and a cue sheet, ie

FILE "bf1942.img" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2352

hmmm, wierd problem there Sidious66.
i used CloneCD version 3.3.4.1 and my Lite-On 40125S, and the backup still works perfect even with the patches.
what type of burner did you backup the game with?
even my BF:Road to Rome backup works fine.
have you tried re-installing the patch?
might work, don’t know.

it’s an HP CD-Writer Plus,

and yeah i tried reinstalling it,
maybe they updated the Safedisc version in 1.2 or something.

Bastards!!

Ah well i’m getting a better burner anyways, maybe a LiteOn can do it.

ya maybe.
my Litey worked perfect making backup.
haven’t had one problem yet with the patches, and using the backup disk.

Nothing new. Different burners produce different standards of burn - remember when Plex copies only used to work in the burner? The patch does update the prot and it finds the ‘imperfections’. Go Lite-On or ASUS or Toshiba DVD/CD-RW combo!
