Problem since computer upgrade

vbimport

#1

I generally use latest CloneCD or Blindwrite (latest versions) to make back ups of protected software.

Since upgrade of mobo, processor and OS I’m burning coasters with my LTR-52246S. Even games that I copied easily before - example, Half-Life

I don’t think it’s an operating system fault as I dual boot XP with 98 and I can’t copy disks as I used to with 98 either.

That leaves some kind of software or hardware problem. I have now got an XP2600 on a Asus A7N8X mobo with 1 gig of 2700 Ram. I have all drivers up to date as far as I know. I suspect hardware as CloneCD burns a HL coaster as well.

Here is the errror report I keep getting from Blindwrite…

I see there is an error regarding the CUE sheet and also the Cache synchronization failed.

Where do I go from here please?
Thanks if you got to the end of this probably overlong post!!!


#2

could you try dao instead of sao??


#3

Thanks damiandimitri!

I was sure I used SAO cooked before - I guess I didn’t! I just let BW choose the one it wanted but obviously it chose the wrong one!


#4

did it work??

good…normally it advises something like dao-pw or pq…if i am correct


#5

Yes it did!

The option it offered me every time was SAO cooked so that is what I used. (Unsuccessfully)
Changing to and using Using DAO pw did the trick!

Thanks again.

Strange, but I’m 99% positive I used SAO cooked before? :confused:


#6

strange…but it works now

good
