I read the following quote by Philamber:
. [The only combination of software and hardware that, since July 2003, has been able to do so is blindwrite v. 4.5.3 or later with a plextor premium writer with firmware revision 1.03 or later. A copy made with that combination is currently the closest possible to a “1:1” copy and will install and run from virtually any drive without any form of emulation save for the need to use an atip hiding utility if playing from a writer.]
I tried that combination, with blindwrite 4.5.7, plextor premium fw1.05 and was able to create a copy of spellforce, which would install and play on liteon drives (no autoplay, using physical bwa). This was familiar to me, done that stuff with the famous blindwrite 4.2.5 before.
However, the so created backup will not INSTALL “from virtually any drive”. Nec, Plex and Tosh all fail in reading the data. I’ve searched quite a number of posts for possible proceedings with the combo Philamber describes, to no avail. It works via Daemon-Tools and via Liteon readers (either DVD or CD), but not in my other drives. I did set the plextools to “hide atip”.
So my question is, whats the trick with the plex premium and blindwrite, to get a copy that has the qualities which philamber describes (installing from virtually any drive) ? Thanks for info or a link to an article which deals with this issue.
