Thanks to all posters. This thread has been compiled from other threads in the Forum. philamberâ€™s thread about the latest version of SecuROM. If your game title is listed here, it will probably be impossible to copy until CloneCD or another soft app is tweaked. Cracks, patches, downloaded images and known warez copies DO NOT COUNT so do not discuss them. If you know a version number thatâ€™s not listed, please post or PM a Mod/Admin so we can add it
Latest SecuROM Thanks to logicwatch, Morglum007, [yAtEs] and philamber. Read about No “cloned disc” has been since the new version of SecuROM has been released in June! (sic)
Arx Fatalis, Hotel Giant and Industry Giant were the first titles to popularly telegraph a more robust SecuROM. It was also noted on SecuROMâ€™s website but obviously something went a little awry with Never Winter Nights (NWN). New code seems to make some readers, notably burners, unreliable subcode readers; currently, weâ€™ve hit a proverbial brick wall. The last version capable of being copied successfully at present appears to be #v4.77.00.0029 >The Thing; (Disciples II is v4.77.00.0001); (Etherlords v4.76.00.0001); (Soccer Manager v4.74.00.0006). You should be able to copy any SecuROM protected CD using that version # or below but will almost certainly fail if the version # is higher than that one. The version number of SecuROM can be found after AddD string in the protected executable using a HEX Editor or Viewer

SafeDisc 2.5 A quick word about SD2.5
Many writers could backup SafeDisc2 with little or no trouble up to the end of v2.4 (which introduced the ATIP Check in the Max Payne official patch 2.3 to 2.4). Tiger Woods Golf 2002 (TWG2002) introduced SD2.51.020 which knocked some writers over, notably Plextors, while Medal of Honor: Allied Assault (MOH:AA) at 2.51.021 knocked over most of the remaining SD2 killer burners
SafeDisc Hybrid Dungeon Siege (which can be copied - it’s interesting so I mention it here) displays SafeDisc behaviour on a CloneCD read. It sounds like ProtectCD in part but until I get an original weâ€™ll run with philamberâ€™s and PaRaDoXâ€™s description; [update]thanks also to gowap who thinks it is SafeDisc
A tweaked version of SD1.
The clockspl.exe (cd in jail icon) is not on the disk (as usual for SD1) but the dlls are there (clcd16.dll and clcd32.dll).
There is a strange 00000001.LT1 (like the 00000001.tmp of SD2)
Less defective sectors too (range is only 809-1527 on CD1.)

‘SafeDisc Lite’ and can be seen on Microsoft titles,
its identified by the dll lite.dll or perhapes it was ltd
something simular anyway,
