IÂ´ve got serious troubles making a working backup of this game. Its protected by SafeDisc 3.20.022. I use CloneCD and Alcohol 120% (latest versions). CloneCD, however, I had to uninstall, because the game did not run even from the original CD. So I used Alcohol 120% to make a backup. First off, I tried to use standard SafeDisc profile for IÂ´ve got a LiteOn SOHW-1673S burner (Fw.JS0C) and IÂ´ve read on severeal places this drive is able to make SD 3.20 working backups with no EFM bypass. Alas, the copy did not work - it didnÂ´t spit out the typical "insert the original CD" message but it asked me to re-eject the CD during the SD verificafion process. But then it didnÂ´t work anyway...
At that point I decided to change the Alcohol 120% settings - I have enabled the EFM bypass. I burned another copy and...it hasnÂ´t worked...again. IÂ´ve got successfully through the SD verification process, but then the program made an "incorrect operation" and was terminated. With the original CD, everything works fine. shruggs
By the way, when I mounted the image into the AlcoholÂ´s virtual drive, everthing works fine. IÂ´ve also made a mini-image - works fine too. But I would prefer 1:1 copy though! I canÂ´t believe my LiteOn 1673S isnÂ´t able to backup the SafeDisc 3.20, even when EFM enabled!! Its possible that LiteOn SOHW-1673S isnÂ´t able to write correctly weak sectors??!! I know my friend has successfully made a backup of Doom 3, also protected with SD 3.2, with the same drive I have
