I have downloaded and installed the trial of CloneCd. I already have AnyDVD and CloneDVD. These work great. Anyway, I am trying to make a backup copy of 'Call Of Duty 2' . It is a pc game. I recently purchased it and based on what my kids did to my Call of Duty 1 disc, I figured a backup would be wise. When trying to copy it, all I see in the log is Failed to read sector,blah blah. The progress bar never leaves zero, nor does the buffer or sub buffer ever leave zero. I have tried software and hardware error handling. The average read speed is miserably slow, too. Using this cd writer in other programs, it is pretty fast. CloneDVD burns DVDs real quick. Like 15 to 20 minutes after closing the DVD tray to eject. So, thats counting reading and writing. I have also tried to write the image to file, but that does not work either.
I have a Sony DVD RW DRU 820A.
The firmware is current.
I am using the pc game profile, with the Amplify Weak Sectors selected.
I have used up 11 discs trying to copy this game.
When it has finaly burned a disc, it turns out to be useless. The game will not play, or it locks up the computer. I have to ctrl-alt-delete to unlock it. It just keeps asking me to insert the correct disc.
Thanks ahead for any help, as I would like to purchase it if it works for me.
