Does this mean CloneCD is going to emulate? Or is it just CloneCD can’t write “real” weak sectors, but my DVD-ROM can’t see the difference? I don’t hope they follow BlindWrite and the AutoPlay feature!

Better yet. Your burner probably can’t write the weak sectors correctly. You can emulate them and have a copy that your dvd-rom does not recognise as emulated weak sectors without even having an autoplay or whatever feature installed!

I’m happy to hear CLoneCD is not going to follow BlindWrite. As far as i know, my LiteOn 52327S can write copies of Safedisc 2.9 (The preview of Alientech showed a table, based on a LiteOn 48-speed. That’s why I think my 52327S can also write copies)

I’m sorry Ernst Blauw. As you can see in my signature, I have got that drive and I tried all possible to make a working copy and the only two things are that BW with autoplay and CCD with emulating weaksectors is working for the lite-on drives.
Yes… in some cases the copy of a sd2.9 game will also work without using BW’s autoplay or using Alcohol, but most certainly not all titles.

my 40125s can copy sd 2.9

what program, what settings and what game?

I personally see no improvements except in that of anti-piracy and some shiny new buttons.

SD 2.9 sure, but Alcohol works for me :smiley:

my lite-ons cannot cut it with alcohol

I used my Asus with the Discdump/fireburner combination to make a copy of Generals Zero Hour without a problem. I believe that game uses SD 2.9 as well.
I’m a little disappointed with the new version. I may be mistaken but it appears that you have to reregister (and pay the $40) to use CCD 4.3.1.6. If that’s true, I’m not going to re-register until CCD can defeat SecureRom without also using twin peaks because as I said DD and FB defeats SD 2.9x just fine without any additional cost, and the old CCD works fine with everything else.
It’s nice to see an update, but it’s not what I was hoping for.

Have tried here my liteon 52327s retail from june 2003 with the list of devices of my signature.
the tests were sims superstar, devastation and postal 2 with both last versions of clonecd and alcohol 120%
All worked fine including a picky LG cd-rom 52x and a toshiba sdm1401 scsi.
The exception was a toshiba sd-r5002 dvd-recorder with a hacked fw that did not work
But the problem was not from the backup, it was from the own drive because other two sheep burners like my plex 8/20, plex premium and my LG dvd-writer dual failed too. with this I want to say:
In one hand, I accept a theory in this forum that there are liteon cdrw drives that works well and others not with safedisk 2.90+. May be I was lucky with this one. In other hand, securom 4.8x can not be copied perfectly with this liteon and my LG dvd-writer. The only choice, in my opinion is a plex premium to give 100% compatiblity of reading because twinpeak method never will give me a good backup to install/play in all my drives.
I do know that someone in this forum has a supposed drive that can make 1:1 backups of securom with twinpeaks method (without autoplay on BW or writing with clonecd)
Finally I can say that autoplay feature on BW it really works on all securom versions I tried, although securom 4.85 I have not still tried it. (like commandos 3 or Max payne 2).

Regards to all folks of forum :stuck_out_tongue:

  • Try making a backup of generals zero hour.
  • Then make an image with alcohol or clonecd (using the backup and the other cd-burner).
  • You’ll see that a few sectors more than the original have bad sectors.

The patterns are 15fa and 3045.

These CANNOT be burned correctly in the Lite-On drives.

Maybe your reader cannot read weaksectors or it’s just a drive that isn’t so demanding, but normally you’ll get only headache using a Lite-On with the sd2.9.

ok man :wink:
I have that game too. I bought it last week; when I have the tests I will post it here

Cheers

All drives gave me the normal range of errors 800-102xx, excepting LG dual dvd-writer ( an extra error on sector 713 writing at 12x, at 4x not) and Toshiba dvd-writer (this one was normal); but the game ran correctly for about one hour and then I finalized it.

hmm. so selecting 4x solved the problem.
By the way have you read the disc you burned in the nero cd speed surface scan?

Mine gives a damaged sector in the second block.
What firmware do you use?

I have not tried nero cd speed yet
What results should get? the firmware of my liteon cdrw is QS0C now( I have updated it recently)

The second block is yellow in cd speed and the copy you made of generals was made with this firmware?
