Since buying my qtech burner i have never been able to successfully patch games. It will copy non patched games very well but when i patch the image file and then burn the image, the game will lock up. The best i can do is burn two copies of the game, one with the patch and one without, patches which pause the disc at the start for some advertising, i then insert the patched game, wait till the patch loads, switch the disc with the unpatched game and run it. This works and i can play the game but not all patches run this way. I use cdrwin to read the image to harddisk and ppf-o-matic to apply the patch. I use my burner for reading and writing at 1x. The program says it has patched successfully and i only ever use patches which have been tested. My burner is a QTECH CD PRO IDE MODEL NO.34AR260DW018399 I am at my wits end so please can anybody help.
