Hey, this is my first time posting here. I have a question that's probably gonna sound dumb and has probably been answered. But could someone explain to me how to burn the sims. I tried just one to one with adaptec cd creator, but i won't work. I also have clone cd. Can someone help?


#2

You can read more about this in our CloneCD forum.

If you do a search on ‘SIMS’ you are likely to find more information there.


#3

Cool Thanks a lot.


#4

There is also a good CD copy artical at neworder.box.sk

let me know if you miss out on reading it I have it stored somewhere


#5

Ok, I’m trying to burn the sims right now, but it seems like it’s taking an extremely long time. I have a 4x burner. About how long should it take?

So far It’s been about 40 mins and it’s has read sector 2138.


#6

Have you enabled Fast Error Skip (FES)?

perhaps I should stay out of this technical stuff, not my field.
What I do know is that some protections can take u a whole lot of time before the image is read (some reported over a day).


#7

Wow…I don’t know if I want to wait that long.

Another question, if I ran clony xxl and then i clicked clone cd and it opened up clone cd…is the only thing I had to do after that is click copy cd to cd? Or did I have to change the settings myself?

Also, I did cd to cd, should i do cd to image first and then just burn the image to the disk?

This is what my log looked like before it started reading the sectors:

Aww, I see your problem!

Just a note: You can never do cd2cd when the source CD has a protection on it.

Now,
Open CloneCD and click cd 2 image
Select your dvd-rom drive (reads a lot faster)
Select the Max read speed
only have fast error skip checked
Click fast error skip settings…
set Read retries to 0 and correction to Software
(If copy doesn’t work go back here and change this to None)

Everything else should go fine
Reading the cd to image file could take up to 2 hours don’t worry if it says “BAD SECTOR 2823” that why they put those in, to scare you. :slight_smile: Once the bad sectors stop, it will go alot faster. They should stop at ~10,000.

Hope this helps
I think it’s time to buy a new drive.
You can get them for ~$50-100
Are you in the US or Japan by any chance?


#9

I’m in the United States. Are you saying I should get a new burner?

I’m going to try out what you just said right now. Thanks, I hope it works.


#10

Yea, I recommend buying a new drive since the once you have only writes at 4x. If not for compatibilty then just for speed.
If you wern’t in the US then you could use CloneCD’s own AWS (amplify weak sectors) wich makes old writers write even the newest protections.

I think Sims use Safedisk and if your writer only writes at 4x it is WAY to old to be able to write SafeDisk 2.

Hope something works.

This is after about 2 hours…Is it even close to being done? :frowning:


#12

This is after 2 hours at max speed with your DVD drive?

Okay, read retries was set to 0 and correction was set to software or none? Try both


#13

Yes, but in the log, it says that it changed to hardware. Should I stop and set it to none, will it go faster?

I had it set to software originally.

(It’s up to sector 5297 now)


#14

Well if whenever you put it on software it switches to hardware, then yes, definatly try NONE. That’s what I use, but my drives is best. :slight_smile: If it only at 5,000 and it took 2 hours then it should be about half done. In the log, you can see the CD has over 246,000 sectors but only the first 10,000 should be bad. Try NONE. If it still goes that slow, you will just have to wait it out. I sent you an e-mail that won’t help unless you actually have a completed image file.

I doubt this would make any change, most likely make the reading LONGER, but try reading the CD from your Writer. Hey, we are down to the bottom of the barrel here. :stuck_out_tongue:


#15

Ok, it finally finished after 4+ hours. Thanks a lot for the help. I’m about to read your email now, and I’ll post how the burn goes and if it works.
