LaserLock

Hello,

Can anybody tell what I can do against a laserLock. It’s the game desperados i wanna backup.

I’ve got a plextor 16/10/40a

with clonecd : here are the cd reader settings : use read subchannel data from data tracks and intelligent bad sector scanner . don ’ t read at full speed .
i ’ ve also done it once succesfully with blindread/blindwrite :extract subcodes , write in dao-pw , don ’ t read at full speed ;
use a rewritable to test, it saves you money .

I’ve read that my plextor16/10/40a doesn’t support read subchannels data. Is there an other way to back-up desperados?

Sure use a crack from www.gamecopyworld.com … There’s not a whole lot you can do besides that when you don’t have a reader that can read the Subs :frowning:

I’m sorry, how can i make a copy of desperados. With an image file, or just an 1 on 1 copy. and this in combination with a crack.

i ’ ve checked the tests for your drive on www.cdrinfo.com and it should be possible to read subchannel data with your drive , but , … very slow , try it and be patient ( 1 hour ? ). like i said before , you could also try blindread/blindwrite .

cheers

Ummmm…you don’t need subs with laserlock. FES if supported & IBSS if things are really slow.

blindread/blindwrite is that a programm to use?

So i have to make an image, with CloneCD an FES enabled. And then it should worke??

Don’t really know BlindSuite but the LaserLock settings with CloneCD that should work are:

[ul][li]Fast Error Skip
[/li][*]Intelligent Bad Sector Scanner[/ul]But like some people here suggested, use a really low reading speed to get a good result.

Does it matter if i read with my DVD-rom or my Burner, for the image file???

What DVD do you have ? I think you’re best of using your writer.

An Aopen DVD-rom…

Use your writer with the suggested settings and a low reading speed.

just for the record.

Use the settings:

  • Fast Error Skip

  • Intelligent Bad Sector Scanner

With these settings make an image, to hard-disk.

After that burn the image to a cd-r.

Please correct me if i’m wrong

Regards Judy

Yes. Sorry you were first pointed to using the SubChannel Data reading options… Luckily FutureProof corrected this :slight_smile:

you can find the program ( fully working , but limited in time ) at www.blindwrite.com . i ’ ve copied a cdrom who was protected with laserlock with my plextor 1210ts ( scsi )and everething was working fine . remember the settings i told you a few days ago . i ’ ve checked the supported cdrw drives at www.blindwrite.com and yours ( 16/10/40a ) is alright .
bye ,

It’s been reported in several forums that Clone was unsuccessful with Laserlock & that BlindSuite worked. This is due more to a hardware deficiency than software. CloneCD AND a good reader can defeat this prot. If your gear is defeated with one software, try another!
