I thought I would make a new topic since I see a ton out there on SD2.9 and lite-on drives. First off the software used was 120% - 18.104.22.1681 and BW - 4.5.7. Now you see all my hardware below. Both my Lite-on burner and my toshiba dvd burner are listed as 2 sheep burners. I have read that lite-ons below and including 24x can't do SD2.9 (something with the weak sectors).
Anyway all this software on my system, there is no type of emulation, virtual drives, autoplay, etc. Nothing enabled except the ability to burn cds.
Now with that said I tried burning this game with both software and both my writers. No matter what I read the disk in and no matter what I wrote this disk with. It all turns out the same.
The game will install and play on my lite-on dvd reader and an old toshiba cd rom reader. It will not play on 2 different toshiba dvd readers that I have. I didn't bother putting it in a burner to read because we all know that won't work without some kind of autoplay feature enabled.
In 120% I have bypass EFM error unchecked SD2 profile - like it is supposed to be with 2 sheep writers.
In BW I have unchecked everything and set to nibble at various speed from 1x to max while reading and raw pw while writing.
I encountered this exact same thing when trying to do SR 4.8 and the toshiba dvd readers had the exact same result. They were unable to read the protection.
