Today I decided to I'd try to make a few backups for some games. I've had some bad luck with scratches lately and I though I should get off my ass and back them up before I scratch one of my $50 game cd's.
I went ahead and installed:
and also d/l clony and twinpeak
Long story short:
After making a back-up of gta3-VC, I tried to see if it would work.
It didn't. But then again, now many of my original CD don't work (asks to insert play disc)
My War3: Frozen Throne also stopped working
And AOM stopped working
So I did a little searching and figured it must be securom screwing things up:
GTA3-vc: securom new v 4.84.69.0071
frozen throne: securom new v220.127.116.1166
AOM: safedisk 2.7
I went ahead and uninstalled blindwrite alcohol, and clone
I delete all registry entries matching the above
I also deleted all registry entries matching securom and safedisk.
I've spent a couple hours searching the forums and while I have found similar complaits, I haven't found any information on how to solve the problem short of reinstalling my OS (win 98)
I still can't get my original cd's to work.
PS I hope there is a special place in hell for the people who make this product. And god help them I find one of them in a dark ally sometime.
