I hate to even post this thread, but I would like some input from people in the know.
I recently bought a new Asus CRW-1610a CD/RW from the computer store for $69US. Although this is a discontinued model, I thought it was a good deal?
Then, as luck would have it, my CDR pooped out, so I got a Toshiba SD-M1612. That unit was around $60 too. I bought it because I always hear people talking about it.
Okay, so I get everything installed and want to try backing up some of the games I have using CCD4.
First, Morrowind by copying the game with the Toshiba, and burning it with the Asus using the default game copying setting in CCD4. Morrowind was a success, the game CD plays in my 2nd computer.
2nd game, Operation Flashpoint. I copy and burn in the same fashion. I put the copy of the game in the same computer, in the Toshiba drive, and the copy is a failure. I try to copy the game again with using a Memorex rewritable disk, (I had good luck with these disks previously) and again a failure.
Is the Asus a good unit to burn protected games burn with?
I was using PNY CDR disks (cheap), is this the problem?
Will the Toshiba play copies well? I have the games installed already in both computers.
Was I using the correct procedure to copy? Toshiba to read, Asus to write, CCD4 game copy setting.
Is Operation Flashpoint a copy-able game?
Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated…
