I have purchased a copy of vegas: make it big in the UK. Safedisc Analyser tells me this uses version 3.10.20 .
I have not seen this type of Safedisc before. Interestingly it is the first CD i have ever seen which has SAFEDISC printed on the inner ring of the CD (where you normally see DADC for secuROM)
Has anyone seen this protection yet?
I have not yet managed to create a working backup of this title. I have copied it using Alcohol 120% Version 1.4.7(1005) with Ignore media type enabled. Game goes to Macrovision splashscreen and then asks for original CD. Tried to mount it both with Alcy and DaemonTools V3.41. Same thing.
I have disabled CCD Hide CDR media. Should I uninstall CCD completely? Some info on reading the CD
Bad sectors are present in the ranges…802 - 10228 (normal Safedisc range) and also 308288 - 308295. I know secuROM sometimes has bead sectors at the end of a CD but i have never Safedisc with this. I was wondering if Macrovision are now doing a Subchannel protection as well. I will try to do an MDS check to see if the CD has any physical structure deviations.
Has anyone else got this game? have you managed to back it up?
