First, a great site, guys. I’ve been using it as reference/info. source for a while, but I can’t seem to find the answer to a small problem I’ve encountered.
I had a Sony CRX140E, which worked great until I tried to backup my copy of Mechwarrior4:Black Knight - the dreaded SD2! After wasting many hours messing around with CloneCD (184.108.40.206) settings, Betablocker and Blindwrite (thank God for rewritables!) I realised I couldn’t do it. After reading many posts, I sold the Sony and am now the proud owner of an LTR-32123s.
With a great deal of trepidation I burned a (4x) rewritable, settings obtained from this forum, rebooted (I run multiple bootable partitions to separate games/burning progs./other stuff) and it worked!!! I was a happy chappie.
Now to my problem. I was curious about CCD4, so downloaded the demo (beta21) onto a different partition to CCD3, and proceeded to burn the same image file. I used the 12x rewritable which came with the burner and simply selected the “games” icon in CCD4 and away I went. Less than 6 mins. compared to 17! Impressive!
Tried to run the game, but it wouldn’t get past the cd check. Bummer. This was in my (Actima 44x) cdrom. Tried it in the burner and it worked:confused:
So, I wiped the cd and repeated the process using 220.127.116.11. The backup worked in both drives. This indicated perhaps CCD4 as the problem. It just occurred to me, while writing - I used the “default” settings in CCD4. Does this automatically enable AWS? But if this is the answer, why did it work in the burner and not the cdrom? I’m sure some of you more knowledgable (than me, that is) chaps can enlighten me.
