Cant copy Battlefield 1942- tried almost everything!

Ok for some reason when I try play BF1942 off of the copied CD, it reads “Eject CD tray and reinsert CD”

The first method I used was philambers Alcohol 120 method.

Didnt work.

Then I used Disc Dump. Did EVERYTHING on Philambers list. Converted the ISO file into an Image (NRG) and copied it onto a CD using Nero.

Didnt work.

For the Alcohol I used NEC CD-RW at 16x.

For DiscDump, I used NEC @ 8x.

What could be the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have a Samsung DVD player as well.

Im also buying a Lite-On 52x24x52 on Monday, maybe I should wait???

PS. I did use the search and couldnt find anything. Also, I successfully copied Black Hawk Down 2 days ago. (Using BWA twinpeaks Alcohol)

Is the NEC a 2 sheep burner??

Im not sure. Sorry. let me see if i can find that out.

All NEC writers are 0 sheep burners.

You have no hope at all with discdump/fireburner or discdump/nero.

Your best chance with that writer is probably alcohol with bypass efm error checked but don’t get your hopes up. The odds are that it will fail.

Should you wait till you get your new Litey? Absolutely. You’ll have no problem copying the game with that writer using alcohol.

[Btw, if you converted the discdump iso to an nrg file before burning, you most certainly did not follow my instructions. :stuck_out_tongue: ]

Thanks Philamber-

I can always count on you for advice, you seem to know your stuff. :bigsmile:

Well I think Im going to buy the lite on 52x24x52. (I have a 16x burner now, (the NEC) ) Slow I know!

I thought I did follow your instructions! Maybe I was too tired when doing it. :rolleyes: :wink:

Thanks again. Ill let you know when I get it up and running.

Hope alls well.
