Sorry to bring old Starforce 3 up again but I was thinking......
The protection is based on DPM right? And the reason people cant copy it like SecuROM 4.85> is because Starforce will access the IDE channels without going through windows and therefore bypassing any emulation put in place.
So what if the image is burnt using BWA info and the burnt CD physically has the same structure as the original (I know this isn't what happens but it was easier to explain it this way:p ). If the file was then burnt with a Plex Premium which does DPM like nothing else then why doesn't the software pass the check.
In what way is the Starforce 3 DPM different to SecuROM?
