Hi, am absolutley new to backing up CD.
Having already paid EA for a replacement, I dont fancy enriching them any more at the exhorbitant charges for a replacement CD.
I’ve tried burning my CD 1 with Alchol 120 version 1.9.2 build 1705. I’ve followed the instructions to do this from the gamecopy world website using the copy wizard and leaving everything at default apart form datatype which I have selected as safedisk 2/3. Unfortunatley each time it gives tons of Disc Read errors. I havent taken this any further and have always cancelled the process.
Below are the instruction I followed and screen dump of Alcohol 120
Here are the instructions to make a working backup of most Protected CDs using Alcohol 120% in combination with a CD-Reader/CD-Writer which can both can handle RAW DAO:
* First identify which CD/DVD protection is being used on your Game CD/DVD (see Identifying a CD/DVD Protection). * Startup Alcohol 120%. * From the [Main] Menu click "Copy Wizard". * Select the CD/DVD Device from which the Game CD is being read. * Select the CD/DVD protection from the Datatype pull-down button at the bottom of the window. This will auto-configure Alcohol 120% for the optimum backup settings. * When ready Click the [Next >] button. * Select "Image Location" where the Game CD Image should be stored. * When ready Click the [Next >] button. * Select the "CD/DVD Recorder" to which the CD Image will be written to. All settings are again auto-configured for the optimum backup settings. * When ready Click the [Start] button. * Play the game!
