I have completed a back up copy of Age Of Mythology Fine but when i come to make a back up of Age Of The Empires: Age of Kings Collectors edition Cloney XXL reads it as easier to copy than age of mythology but when clone cd starts to create the image it gets to about 3 percent really slowly then basically stops.
This could be a long thread unless you read the FAQ and do some searching.
It is most likely SafeDisc which is hardware dependent for the read and write. It can take minutes, hours or overnight to read it depending on your hardware.
I have both these games. I also get the same results, even though AOE is older safedisc than AOM. After 3-4% it picks up reading very fast. Just wait it out, for me its like 10-15min then like 2min more for the rest of the cd.
