Quake 4 DVD backup not working

Hi, I’m trying to run off of the FULL image for the DVD version of Q4. I am using Alcholol with all the emulation options enabled.

I had this working before, but I recently got a new motherboard, and reformatted with a fresh copy of WinXP. Now it tells me to “insert the DVD and try again”!

Is there any tricks to getting this to work right? The previous time, it was working no problem

i wonder why it worked before…
but it’s simple, you need a small tool called SD4Hide from SKULL which is able to hide the v-drive, so that the copy protection will not see your virtual drive. just do some search here or in google.

Thanks

Now, is it bad to leave SDHide enabled? Or should I restore it when I’m done?
