I have a .mdf/.mds image of a game that I own. I am attempting to burn the image to disc and am encountering an error.
First I will point out that I have successfully mounted the image to a virtual drive through MagicDisc. Running the game this way has no problems at all. I still wish to burn the game to disc, however.
The problem is that when I attempt to play the game off the disc it always gives the error “Cannot find game disc, please insert disc and try again.” I don’t understand how my image works when mounted to a virtual drive but isn’t recognized when it’s burnt to a disc. The only thing I can think of is that some type of hidden file isn’t being transferred during the burn.
So far the steps I’ve tried to burn are:
- Extract the contents of the .mdf using ISOBuster and burn through Nero
- Convert the .mdf to .iso using UltraISO and burn through Nero
- Burn the .mds directly using Alcohol 120%
I’m stumped and would appreciate any help that anyone has to offer.
