I own a CD-ROM containing a motorcycle training course which I would like to copy so I can have it on my laptop (a IBM X31) which has no CR-ROM.
The disc seems to be copy protected but none of the scanners seem to identify the copy protection. Here are the symptoms:
1) If you look on the surface of the disc about 1/3 from the center of the disc is a ring (1.5 mm width) where either no data or some sort of special data is located (see image)
- If i insert the disc and run the executable, the program runs normally.
- If I try to copy all the files to a folder, after a few files the process hangs on a file. My computer pretty much hangs until I eject the disc.
- If I try to create an Iso of the disc, when its gets to about 33% (I assume that’s when it hits the ring from 1 above) it hangs the computer.
What is this copy protection and how do I overcome it so I can use this CD (which I do own) when I’m away from home?
