well, personally, i’ve never used hide cdr media…however, for everyone out there that does, why does the copy work if its put into a non-writer, but not when its in the writer? i know this was the case for civilization3, for me, personally. lemme re-check again :).
well, migrated to canada, put civ3 in the writer (clonecd 188.8.131.52, tray version 3.3), wouldnt run hide cdr media on or not. ran in my liteon dvd, though, hide cdr media enabled and disabled. apparently the liteon cant read atip. wipes brow, thank god. of course, thanks sherman1, not for the ATIP info, but for the hide cdr media info :(.
now for the why civ3 wouldnt run with hidecdr media enabled. hide cdr media must be doing a hell of a lot more than blocking ATIP info. im not sure what, but otherwise, i cant see how it could work for anyone, and only be doing that. just my 2 cents on that, though.
