I have a language software disc protected with Securom 5.03.04. At first I tried various methods to copy this CD, however whatever I tried the resulting burnt copy CD would not work. When inserted it complained that it was a copy with a Securom message. I then followed the tutorial to make a backup of this disc using CloneCD, Twin Peak and BWAbuilder. With this I had the problem that I was unable to get a smooth curve output in BWAbuilder. As a result I had to resort to creating an mds file created in alcohol and using that to make a bwa file. The good thing is this method worked and I was able to patch the files in Twin Peak and successfully burn a copy disc that is fully functional.
My only problem is that no matter what I try I am unable to properly rip a fully functional image from the copied backup disc. If using imgburn I am able to rip an image and no errors are reported, however when I try and mount in cdwincdemu I get the message that the cd is a copy and a note about securom. I think the image must have been created correctly, as when I try and do this with the original commercial disc I am not even able to successfully create an image at all. I thought that as the cd I am ripping from is a patched backup CD this Securom crap would be gone, otherwise the backup cd would not work? Next I tried ripping with Daemon Tools lite and get the same message. The ripped image will run in Alcohol and Daemon tools, however I am unable to get it working in wincdemu. I want to use Wincdemu as this is a program I use with a very small footprint for my laptop, and besides if I have to use advanced emulation such as Alcohol etc it signals I have not managed to make a successful rip without Securom. So my question is how do I make a 1:1 image rip (preferably iso) of my already patched backup CD that will play in any Emulator without creating from scratch again with Twin Peak, BWAbuilder etc?
