CloneCD SafeDisc 2 End Result?

vbimport

#1

I know that Max Payne is protected with Safe Disc 2. After I used clonecd on it, I could install the game. I couldn't play it though. I had to get a fixed exe. Is this supposed to happen? Thx in advance.


#2

There have been many topics concerning Max Payne.
I have not read them, but perhaps your answer is on one of those threads…?


#3

whats your writer
check here for writers that can make
workable SD2 copies with clonecd’s AWS


#4

my writer is a sony crx-140e with 1.0s firmware


#5

try these settings
Read
Speed 4X
FES on
FES settings:
error correction software
read retries 3
all other off

To Write
Speed MAX
AWS (amplify weak sectors) on
don’t close last session on
buffer underun protection on
dont repair sub… off
good luck

I did make a duplicated CD of Max Payne with the settings and I could install from the disc. I couldn’t play though. It would just stay showing the Max Payne logo. I had to get a fixed exe to play it. I don’t think that’s supposed to happen?!

ITS NOT

I don’t think your sony is able to make SD2 backups. Not even with Amplify weak sectors enabled.

Better get a new writer :wink: Hey they are not THAT expensive :stuck_out_tongue: You may look at one of the cheaper brands, like lite-on…

No the sony crx-140e with 1.0s firmware will not work

You will need a new CDR , something like the new Liteon 32x12x40

I had the sony to it will not do it

Have Fun:)

what is best burner right now? i don’t need the fastest, just the best.


#12

The Plextor burner is ok but the Lite-on will
work better. Lite-on 24x12x40 is about $99.99
The Lite-on 32x12x40 is about $169.99.
Check out CloneCD Supported CD-Recorders
and you will find out that Lite-on has more
features than the Plextor.

The Lite-on will work with (AWS) or without

i went and checked the difference between the lite-on 24x and the plex 24x at the clonecd supported writers page and they both support the exact same modes.
i haven’t had one problem with my plex 24x.
so far copys everything.
i paid abit more for my plex 24x but the reviews and the info i found on the net pointed me towards this burner.
i think both burners are good, it all comes down to preference, quality and how much ya want to spend.
laters

:cool:


#14

Thanks. I think I will go with the Lite-On 32x burner. Thanks for everyone’s help


#15

Another reason to go for the lite-on is that it can copy safedisc 2.5, while the plextor currently can’t.


#16

Where can I purchase a Lite-On burner? I went to BestBuy.com and CircuitCity.com and searched for Lite-On and no results were found? To I have to buy it direct from the company or something?


#17

I will send you a private message


#18
