Trying to backup Sims Unleashed which is SafeDisc 2.8
I know this drive is a 1 sheep burner and understand what that means.
Unlike other PX-W4824 users, I am unable to make a working copy.
I’ve read and searched this forum looking for answers.
As well as the forums at http://clone.cd/phpBB/
I’ve tried Clone CD 4202 with Ignore and Amplify Weak Sectors.
I’ve tried Alcohol 120 (build 518) (SD 2 profile - Bypass EFF on and off)
I’ve tried BlindWrite (last build of 4.5.2) (Enhance Weak Sectors on and off)
If I use Clone CD and do Emulate Weak Sectors, then Hide CDR media, the copy will play in the burner ONLY.
(not the solution I’m looking for)
I have tried the following burn speeds with the 3 software packages listed above:
4X (CDR and CDRW)
10X (CDR and CDRW)
Is it the firmware? Should I back down to an older firmware like 1.01?
I have read other users of this drive were able to make backups.
Even users with an older Plextors can make a 1:1 working copy of Unleashed and even Superstar (SD2.9).
Look for the posts by XXX-Gr and Parker:
I’ve driven myself crazy trying to figure out why this drive won’t make a working copy.
I’m not a n00b and I’m thinking I need to break down and buy a new ‘2 sheep’ CD burner. (but I don’t want to)
