I try to backup my DVD of UT 2004 (protected with SecuROM 5) and I am having some problems with merging the topology information into the image file for mounting it in an A120% virtual drive (with Daemon Tools’ BW5 plugin).
First, I make a (100 %) *.bwa with BB5.1, which works flawless with my Toshiba 1712. After that, I open the BlindWrite Tweaker 1.5.6 and use the following settings:
- Include Autoplay Info
- Start Page: Read
- other options by default
- Writing Topology: Write with Autoplay
- Topology Method: Fast (CD/DVD)
- Read Topology: Always extract
- Browse: …to the *.bwa
- Extraction Speed: 8x
- by default
When I now try to read the image with BlindWrite 22.214.171.124 (or the new 126.96.36.199), topology information is not always read and merged to the image file, because BlindWrite thinks, that “Media topology isn’t required”. It works about 1 out of 5-6 times.
So whats the magic behind it making it working correctly?
Is it related to the software, my DVD-ROM or to the media, which has some small scratches, because it was bought second hand from my local rental store? The media is readable though and the scratches are really tiny and should not affect the procedure.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thx-a-lot in advance.
