Perhaps this is why Macrovision moved on to their latest version (3.1)
I have a copy of Empires: Dawn of the Modern World that is protected with SD 3.1 and this disc too is easily copied by the Liteon and ASUS.
This latest version of SD was too easily copied, I wonder whether Macrovision have some surprises in store for us? I still vividly remember when the first Neverwinter Nights patch came out, and all of a sudden SecuROM New was born, and our copies no longer worked. [/B]
I think that was my point. ie that no matter who says that this drive will kill any sd 2.9 protection out there that it isnt true for all drives that you play it on (at least for me its been that way). it will make a very good copy but variences from one title to the next even using the same protection can cause problems as well as the play drive just not liking cdr media.
Your right there are probably alot of drives out there that wont run non emulation sd 2.9 backups no matter what drive you have and what software you use to back it up…i just have 2 of them…im sure there are more. but of course i could be doing something wrong with my backup techniques that cause this. Though no one has told me differently.
your right about macrovision also as ive had sd2.9 originals that wouldnt even read in some of my drives! I think they backed down a bit on the protection.
Im not a expert by any means never claimed to be. I just post my tests and results on here to help others maybe make informed decisions as i use others tests and results to make mine.
as far as FP i think he was joking…its sometimes hard to tell on forums I wouldnt take it personally. you should of just said I do WIN! hehee…anyways i do think he agrees with my point…that no drive out there will make a perfect copy that will work on every cdrom drive out there (like i said folks, you got to use some common sense here. I know my creative drive is a piece of crap i dont expect burned sd 2.9 titles to work on it. Same goes for burners if you have a crappy burner like my laptops then dont expect the software to magically make 1:1 copies of every title you have…aint gonna happen).
