I have read the posts about the failures and success’s of copying DOOM3, Safedisc 3.20.022. I see that many folks with the LiteOn 52327s have had success with CCD 5022 and Alcohol120%.
I have run into an interesting problem. First off here’s my setup:
MSI K8N Neo 250G motherboard, AMD 64bit 3200
1 Gig OCZ DDR400,
FX6800 Video Card,
80G IDE HD.
CDRW is a LiteOn 52327s QSOE
Reader is a DVD/CD-ROM not a writer.
OS is XP SP2 32bit version
Here’s the deal:
I can make a copy of DOOM3 with Alcohol120% that will run on my DVD/CD-Rom player with no emulation or and ‘ignore media’ unchecked. It even runs when I un-install all CD write software. No problem there.
I decided to try the new CCD 5022 since i bought a license from Slysoft a while back. The problem with the CCD copy is that no matter how I configure CCD, ignore, emulate, or amplify, the copy will bring up a message from DOOM3 saying to uninstall the DVD/CD emulator it found. This occurs with the CCD tray running or not, and whether ‘ignore CDR media’ is checked or not.
In fact, not even the original disk will boot while CCD is installed. I get the same ‘Found DVD/CD emulation software’ message. After uninstalling CCD the Alcohol copy and original disc boot just fine.
This is puzzling since others have success with CCD and SP2 copying DOOM3 with the 52327s.
I think it may be the Nvidia Nforce3 IDE drivers for the 64 bit MB I’m using. Microsoft’s Drivers won’t work on the 64 bit Nvidia chipset so there is no way to roll-back the driver. It may be that Doom3 routines may see these as emulation software.
At least my Alchohol120% copies are working ok!!
Has anyone else run into this problem, and are you using a 64 bit AMD hardware system? I’d like to see if someone else is succeeding with CCD and Doom3 on a similar 64 bit system.
