The ATIP protection is based on this fact: when the game starts it checks if there's ATIP info present: if so then it will presume it's a CD-R disc and will not play. However a normal CD-ROM cannot read this ATIP and will of course 'say' that this data is not present: thus the copy will work...
doesnt this defeats the purpose of the protection? so unless new CDROMs can read the ATIP... wont the protection be redundant?
Can anyone explain this?
I formerly used my sony 4X4X24X burner and CloneCD 2.6 to make a back up of Diablo 2... which didnt work on my sony cdrom, giving the message of "Please insert correct disc" which led me to believe that the ATIP was being read by my cdrom rite? then why when I used my Liteon 32123S and CloneCD 5.5.8 to burn a backup...the exact same sony cdrom could now read the disc?
can anyone give possible explainations? thanks
