I just brought this wonderful game home tonight and instantly tried to back it up with Clone. Of course it failed. My LiteOn has been a good drive, I purchased it way cheaper than my Plextor drive and it works way better. (way better for what I use it for and that is to copy games) But I knew it was a matter of time before Macrovision stepped back into the scene with new stuff to screw us all over.
I originally bought a Plextor to copy safedisc 2 games. And a month after I recieved it Macrovision released SD 2.51 on MOHAA and the drive became useless for me. So I bit the bullet on it and bought another drive. A LiteOn 40x12x48s and it made copies like there was no tomorrow. That is until I came home with NFS6. Some of you say it Clone cd that's not taking advantage of the drive to make the backup and others are saying it's the harware itself. My best bet is on the hardware. Now I have 2 drives in my possesion, a LiteOn 40x12x48s and a Plextor 24x10x40a. Both were purchased in under one year wih the sole intent of backing up my precious game collection. And both are rendered useless in that area now. Does anyone have any light to shed on this subject or am I doomed to purchasing yet another drive to get clean copies of things. Will Olli come forth and bring us new software to take advantage of our drives? Will LiteOn unvail a new Firmware for the drive that will fix everything? I ask these questions here in this forum for obvious reasons. We are all very into what we do here and it is very important to us we have hardware that performs the way we want it to. Not only that, I see that the veterans of the forums are true professionals on these topics and have led me to educated buying decisions for my hardware in the past. So I ask you now, "what the hell should I do?" Buy new hardware or pray for miracles? Thanks for your help.
