Hope someone can help with this… I have bought Magix Movie Edit Pro 2005 (absolutely fantastic piece of software and worth every penny - thatâ€™s German engineering for you!) and would like to make a backup copy just in case my manages to get his little hands on the discs.
However, the main program disc appears to be protected. A search of the forum here brings up just one result that says that MEP is protected with Ring Protech (but it isnâ€™t clear which version.
Well, to get to the point, I used Alcohol 120% to back up the disc to an image on my hard drive. Out of curiosity, I extracted the files from the image into a separate directory, but to my surprise the files that throw up errors when I try to copy directly from the original disc also failed to copy from the image. I received a CRC error.
Is this supposed to happen? If I write the image to CD will the write fail? (It was the first time Iâ€™d used Alcohol 120%, so Iâ€™m still learning to use it correctly.)
TIA for setting me straight.
