Note: for some titles Maxi Images can’t be created anymore with this method since version 7.27 as Sony now uses a small, varying ISO check.
Start BW5Tweaker 1.5.6 and choose ‘Read’ as ‘Start Page’, then go to ‘Advanced Settings’
‘Add’ Gap Zone: From sector 17 to the last sector of your Securom DVD
If you already have a valid B5T file, you can skip Topolgy extraction by choosing ‘Never Extract’ at the ‘Read Topolgy’ setting
Click on ‘Run BlindWrite’, choose source and destination, then start the (short) image creation with ‘Read’
Activate Windows compression for the main image file(s) (rightclick on the folder/file and select Properties->Advanced button, then check the box beside “Compress contents to save disc space”); compressed files use some KB up to 1-2 MB HDD space (HDD has to be formated in NTFS format to be able to use Windows compression)
Mount image with latest Daemon Tools lite/PRO or Alcohol 52%/120% (depending on Securom version it’s neccessary to use a Antiblacklist tool like YASU)
- If your drives aren’t capable of extracting valid topologies with BW5, you can mount your “gap image”, and read it with Alcohol 120% (of course without D.P.M. which has to be done with original DVD)
The Tweaker can’t be used for Blindwrite 6 anymore. In this case you have to use a custom profile.
Create a new txt-document in BW’s profile folder (Program files\VSO\Blindwrite 6\profiles), paste this:
[BW5] profilename=SecuROM maxi profiledesc= default=0 visibility=7 subfordata=0 topologyread=1 onreaderror=-1 gap_zone_1=[17..[i]last sector[/i]]
…and save document as e.g. Maxi.ini
Now start Blindwrite 6 and choose the SecuROM maxi profile to create your Maxi image.
