Messing around here quite a lot and playing computer games as a primary hobby, I have a pack of questions regarding safedisc protection. Well, I am not going to answer them directly but instead I am going to write down what I have understood so far and asking … to correct me if I am wrong! First of all safedisc is a CD-protection technique which is based on intensionally introducing bad sectors to a disc.
When we try to backup those games we need what?
Any reader should do?
And why for example my DVD needs a month to read an image of a safedisc protected CD while my writer does it in a minute?
Additionally, safedisc is the only protection that has to do with this sheep thing. I suppose on writing, not on reading.
OK. If you have a zero sheep writer, you should buy a new one. If you have a two sheep writer you should keep it in a safebox.
But … if you have an one sheep writer?
What you should do?
Let’s say you use Alcohol 120% with safedisc 2/3 profile.
Why some games are backed up and some other do not?
What’s the criteria for this to happen or not?
And most importantly, why the same !@#$% disc plays on a CD-ROM and does NOT on another?
Well, I let you know if I have something else in mind …
