Sheep!?

i am having a small problem when copying games with my yamaha F1, its seems that the copyed CD’s don’t fully work on other CD-rom drives. I have tryed 4 other CD-rom drives and the games i copy will not open the game. i asked for help perviously and got told it was because my CRW is a sheep 1?!

whats a Sheep (apart from a funny fluffy amimals that welsh ppl enjoy)?

thanks

CRW-F1 - Correct EFM-Encoding

Yamaha CRW-F1 - Protected Data

EFM explained

“sheep” were created by the creators of clonecd to determine how well a burner can do Correct EFM-Encoding. this is straight from clonecd’s website:

2 sheep = Drive writes regular bit patterns correctly.
1 sheep = Drive writes regular bit patterns almost correctly.
0 sheep = Drive does not write regular bit patterns correctly or has not yet been tested. Use “Emulate weak sectors”.

so the more sheep, the better.

I thought was enough :confused: :bigsmile:

same here
never saw any 5 sheep writer :bigsmile:

Alexnoe refers to 3 sheep writers quite often :wink:

u guys obviously never heard of the secret method to overclock ur burners to the never-before-seen 10 sheep burner, capable of not only defeating any copy protection, but u just need to show it a picture of the game and it’ll burn it for u! :bigsmile:
