I’m trying to backup a copy of AvP2 for a friend, so he can take the backup back to college and leave the shiny originals at his parents. Each time I try I get a coaster. I have tried with versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 of CloneCD. I have a NEC DV-5700A DVD-ROM and a Sony CRX-145E burner. I am using Win98SE with a copy of Nero 184.108.40.206 also installed.
A co-worker has managed to backup his copy of AvP2 using CloneCD 220.127.116.11 and told me what settings worked for him and it is these that I am using. He has a Compaq CD-ROM model unknown and a Yamaha CR2100 [?] burner. Not sure about other burner software but I suspect he’s got something.
Each time CloneCD completes the burn process sucessfully and shows no errors. I quit CloneCD and open Windows Explorer only to be told that the burner drive is not ready. I haven’t touched the CD and CloneCD is not set to auto eject on completion. So I take the disk out, place it in the DVD-ROM which tries to read it and this either hangs Explorer or tells me the drive is not ready.
So, have I got a problem with the burner, or is there a problem with my setup and later editions of CloneCD? Any help appreciated.
