I am facing a strange issue. I had purchased the game Max Payne. Somehow, my kid brother managed to scratch it and it would’n work. So, I had to buy a new one. To be on the safer side, i thought that I would make a backup copy this time. However, I made six coasters instead of a backup copy of the disk using Roxio Direct Cd. The copy would be made, and the game would install, but i could never play from the same disk. it would always hang my system. Then some one told me about CloneCD and that it would make an exact copy of the disk. However, the disk that I made using Clone Cd did play, but I could not install from that disk. I used to get an error some 03.cab file or something was missing. I went to the http://www.talonsoft.com website and it was the first FAQ there which said that the disk was bad and had to be replaced. Also, when I play from the original disk, everytime, I quit the game to the desktop and the system crashes. I have applied the Max Payne v1.02 patch. However, it was unable to resolve my issue and my system still crashes when i exit. I just don’t understand what I am doing wrong. Please help.
