ok, basicly what i want to do is make a small image file for safedisc protetected games, i know there is a program out there called “MiR”, but the files it makes are still quite large, i have tried making the mir file, using hex to remove some of the files, it worked fot a bit, but then started mucking up.
so basicly what i would like to do is be able to open a mds/mdf image file, replace the large data2.cab file (only needed for installation) with just a fake notepad file renamed as “data2.cab”, problem is that (in ultraiso) whatever i save it as the bad sectors are lost, and therefore the copy wont work, does anybody know of any software that can open, modify, and save a msf/mds file without removing the bad sectors.
i also would like to do this, sometimes i buy budget games from a company called “sold out”, they are protedcted with SafeDisc 2.8/2.9, problem is that “sold out” put there logo in the autorun and everywhere, and generally muck up the cd.
as far as im aware making a mini-image is not illegal, as long as the copy protection is left intact, i am not asking for a download link for them, as downloads would allow people who have pirate versions to run the game illegaly. however if what i am asking is still illegal, please close this thread.
