I just purchased a Dell P4-1.7GHz, 1GB PC800 RAM, 16x NEC NR-5800A DVD, 16x/10x/40x NEC NR-7800A CD-RW, WinME, and I am having troubles with writing working copies of the major protection schemes (Safedisc v1&2, Securom 1&2, etc.). I read everything in the trial of the new CloneCD the way CloneDB configures it based on protection scheme and get the errors I’m supposed(?) to for Safedisc, for example. I then write the data to the CDR at 8x and attempt to use the program, unsuccessfully. I am using firmware 1.07, because I can’t find ANYWHERE providing firmware for NEC drives (I guess www.nec.com doesn’t support their CDRW drives?) nor can I find any FAQs about them.
That new BetaCD or BetaBlocker program that was developed for SafeDisc v2 games only produces SD2 games that crash when the protection is being scanned (in Black and White, for instance) on my setup. I have no idea how to make working backups of my legally owned software (hell, I have all the CD-Keys, Boxes, Instruction Manuals, Receipts, AND CDs to prove it) and certainly would like some pointers on how to get my games working without the usage of some memory-resident program or cracked .exe file. In other words, I want to make fully functioning backups of games I paid for the way I paid for them.
Thanks in advance,
