Please help me to backup a Laserlock Marathon (=LaserLok Star v6) protected cd-rom

A cd-rom I own, Sobotta v2.1, is protected with Laserlock Star v6 (=Laserlok Marathon).
Please help me to create a backup, it doesn’t matter if it’s a mounted image, a copied cdr or something else.

In a previous post, it was recommended to use the following settings
in Alcohol v1.9.5.3105:

read subchannel: on
data position mesurment: high
Read speed: Max
DPMS speed: 1x

It didn’t work unfortunately, this is the error log Alcohol gave me:

I’ve read somewhere that a bushound could be useful, I’m not sure this is helpful but this is the output it gave me.

Please post a complete system report from within Alcohol. Thanks.

Ok, is this what you mean?

You’ve hit a read error right near the end of the reading process. Try again but this time check the Skip reading errors box in addition to your existing settings.

This is a source media error it is either scratched or dirty, try cleaning your source disc and try again.

I’ve checked ‘skip reading errors’ just like you said. I started the extraction process at 9:58 this morning, it’s still in progress.

As you could see in the error log, the first error begins at 322536, now that it skips this, the next error is at 322537, 322538 etc. At this moment it’s at 325816 and the duration of the process so far is 5 hours and 49 minutes.

The end is at 332800, so perhaps it will be done by tomorrow. Is it supposed to go this slow?

I’ve read that laserlock marathon gives problems at 97% of the reading process, which is exactly when the reading error started. Also the cd has a ring on the outer layer.

I really appreciate your help, please don’t give up.

If it has a visible ring cut into the disc near the outer edge then also check Advanced Sector Scanning with an A.S.S. jump factor of either 100 or 500.

Since I was allready reading the cd for 15 hours, it seemed like a waste to start over again, in total the process took 24 hours or something.

After trying to mount the image alcohol gave this error:

So I tried to burn the image to cdr, the burning proces worked:

Call me paranoid but to me it seems that you are trying to avoid the 30 day trial version limitation by turning your system date back and re installing, but then again i am paid to be sceptical so i was wondering if you would try in our latest trial version and see if you get the same results.

Actually if you look closely to the system reports you will find that I used two completely different systems. It turned out that the cdwriter in the computer that I was using didn’t support some kind of writing mode so I copied the image to a different computer and used that one for the writing.

Anyway, the new version of alcohol can’t give me a working backup either. The extraction process takes a long time, and it doesn’t go much faster with ‘skip reading errors’.

Your right, see told you i was paranoid :slight_smile: i now notice the drive you used is not supported and the RMPS process could not be started, install our latest version to see if support for your drive has been added there, if not send me another system report so that we can add support for you.

Really? That would be great! Hopefully adding the support will help me to copy this cdrom.

An attempt in Alcohol v1.9.5.4212:

IT WORKS!!!

The ‘Alcohol Soft Support Team’ e-mailed me a file: DevSupp.dll that has added support for my cdwriter.
When I started the burning process the software gave the same error ‘Cannot start RMPS process, something has failed’, so I assumed it wouldn’t work this time either.

However when I tested the cd, everything worked.

Thanks a lot everyone, especially Phoenix.
