I am somewhat confused about what exactly amplify weak sectors does, how it does it, when its supposed to be used and why. Also I read somewhere that using AWS means its not a real 1:1 copy. Can anyone here with knowledge enough give an elaborate simple explaination of this?
I mean to me personally, I just like for a backup of my game to be able to run from any cd-rom without any emulation or third party software installed. Even if “AWS” means something is somehow manipulated a bit, as long as a backup runs like the original, its a 1:1 copy in my book. If I wanna run a game on my PC with the original, and later that day take my laptop to my friends for a network battle, I wanna be able to grab my copy and leave the original in a safe spot at home.
Also, how do I know if my burner can support AWS, and to what extent it can support it? Last Safedisc games I tried to backup, and was successful was Age of empiresII and the expansion for II. I also made a successful backup of WarcraftIII, as well as Cossacks: European Wars.(If this helps anyone to determine anything). I curretly have Age of mythology, its still sealed, but I wanna know if I can even try to back it up or if I should not even bother. Oh yeah, my burner is an old 6x Samsung (Samsung SW-206). And yes I have a Toshiba DVd to use as a reader.
