Well basically, I burned a few CDs of Rome Total War for backup, then a few months later, I lost disc 1 (still have disc 2 and 3) and bought a new comp for playing games. So at this point I’m thinking im screwed till I remember I burned the CDs as backup (using Nero I think, I’m not sure) and when I pop them in to install, it reaches a bad sector and starts flinging error messages. I guess this is because of the Safe Disc prot on CD 1 (Version 3.2), so I’m wondering if there is any way around this, or if I don’t have a chance.
Anybody at all?..
Ok, ill take that to be a “no, u have to use NoCD to illegally crack it in order to play, but we can’t tell you that cus we want to sound legal”. Thanx for the help…
It’s a quiet night for some reason…plus people here are from all different timezones, so in 12 hours or so, you may find your self with an answer.
So you wouldn’t have an alternative in mind yourself, whatsoever?
Bumping the thread 3 times in 3 hours is a bit over the top. Try having a little patience in future.
To answer your question, if disc 1 is the play disc and the original is safedisc protected then you can forget about your nero “back-up” working.
If you’ve lost the original but can prove purchase, then contact the distributor as it’s usually possible to obtain a replacement at a nominal charge.
Yeah, they charge a $20 service fee. Sigh, I guess I’ll just buy the new collection with the expansions to.
