I thought that I would just humble myself and begin putting this request in the Newbie column. I am the original owner of the X-Wing Collectors Series CD which I purchased new back several years ago. The game comes with two CDs. Disc 1 is X-Wing and X-Wing vs Tie Fighter: Flight School. Disc 2 is Tie Fighter. These are the Windows 95 upgraded versions of the extremely popular games of the same title (which by the way play quite well under Win98SE).
As with most games, you must insert the CD in order to play. Having done this several times, while the original CD is still in great shape, I stumbled upon this website and discovered that creating a legal backup of a game that you own is ok. If this game was not my own personal copy, I would not even be having this discussion.
Hence, here is the problem. As stated in most of the forums, in order to create the backup the type of protection must be identified. I have downloaded and used CD Protection Scout, Clone Cd Games Database, Clony XL, and Clony XXL version 126.96.36.199 but none have been able to detect the type of protection on either the CD or the installed game.
Clicking on the file Xwing95.exe without my original CD inserted yields the message of “Could not find Xwing CD…Please insert Xwing CD into your CD Drive” so I know that it is a protected disc. Please help!!!
