I have read a lot of posts on this site and I see there is quite alot of info posted.
Reason why I’m here:
I have always made backups of my cds and used the backups for use (safe originals). If I couldn’t get a copy then I had to use original and hope that all went well. Well it happened…damaged CD. Wrote to mfg and they said send defective back and $20, we’ll ship you another one. haha the game was only 9 bucks and they wanted 20.
So now it comes to try and make back ups. SD2 and securerom have done me in. After countless coasters and using around 10 different progs I’m trying to get a copy of disk2 arcanum (securerom).
Now for the post:
There are profiles listed for clonecd to do securerom recording but for the life of me I can’t see where I enter any of these changes. When I start the prog all I get is the 4 basic orange icons!
The settings tab is just general.
What happens in default mode is that the reading does not finish and locks up the system so I have to reboot. I have used blindwrite, alcohol120, burnatonce, diskdump, fireburner, clonecd, etc.
The only success I had was burnatonce with ddump. I got a full read but when I burned the image the program didn’t see the cd, whether in the writer or plain cdrom.
One thing I did find out was that CHEAP cds make GREAT coasters. I had bought a bulk amount of 10 cent cds and it seems that was all they were worth. Went to higher quality disks and success rate was tenfold.
So to make a long story short, any help?
