Okay. I’m here again. YEs, i did a perfect backup of codename outbreak with starforce on it. This is the most strange cd a have ever backup-ed. I have a copy that it’s like original, perfectly functional. The way i copied it will never be forgotten. I used cloneCD ( don’t remenber what version) and the original & copy is perfectly readable for windows or any os ( linux) but here is the curious…if u try to read it to obtain a hd image…then both copy and original hangs up all my windows me system. I tried it several times and finally used my very good toshiba sd-m1402 dvd drive to read the entire cd without ant problem(my toshi didn’t read the cd in the first, second or third attemp, i remember it began to read it in the 5th or 6th try). Just a curious thing…it took to be read about three hours( nor a ring protected game last too much!!!). The way it read it is also very curious: it read a bit, then freezing, read another bit and freezing again.It copies to the HD LIKE THE INSTALL DOES!!!
Burned as normal way and always works like original.
TIP: The way the install works ( reading, freezing and reading again) is the way cloneCD extracted a working image.
Finally, i tried to backup the copy and…no luck…my system hangs up again no matter if i try on my toshi or plextor.
I haven’t tried it now, but i can test if i can read it again with some common burning programs.
( to verify it was correct i entirely did the game from the beginning till the end with the backup)
TIP#2: It works everywhere.
