Ok I got the game to work but in a different way.
When I downloaded Alcohol It created a virtual CD-ROM. So what I did was created the image file using alcohol and then mounted the image file onto the virtual CD-ROM. Played just fine. Same thing with the new Clone CD. So now I have two virtual CD-ROM drives. I guess thats a good thing.
As far as a working back-up goes, however, I am still having trouble. I'm pretty sure that my hardware is the problem.
I still cannot find the AWS option on Clone CD. Maybe im being retarded or somthing...its probably somewhere right in front of my face and im just not seeing it.
I am also having trouble finding the efm option in Alcohol 120%.
But right now im perfectly happy because I can now play the game which means I can now give it back to my friend who is ready to kill me.......:bigsmile:
Thanks for all your help, time, and patience. I will continue my quest for knowledge in this area.
