Use CloneCd version 18.104.22.168. Make sure you have completely deleted any signs of previous versions, especially the virtual drives. (Uninstall the previous versions using Add remove programs, then use "Regedit" or some other handy dandy registry editor to delete the registry entries.)
I used the above profile on the Sims2, University, Doom 3, Call of Duty: United Offensive, and Far Cry. It works perfectly in two out of three computers I tried it on with just "Hide Cdr Media" checked in the CloneCd tray. On the third system I had to do this:
Start the game with "Hide Cdr Media" checked in the tray icon. The game will give you an error. Exit out of that. Right click on the CloneCd tray Icon and click exit. Start the game again. It will give you an error again. Exit out of that. Enable the CloneCd system tray icon again (should be in C:\Program Files\Slysoft\CloneCd). Make sure "Hide Cdr Media" is checked. Start the game again. It should work this time. It also will work after the first error if you uninstall CloneCd and play the game without restarting your computer. But it wont work next time you reboot your computer. I recommend just exiting and restarting the CloneCd tray. This is a troublesome way to do it, and I don't know why it is necessary, but it works.
At least it works on the US version, with my hardware and the current version of CloneCd.
I used a Nec 3500A burner for reading and writing the DVDs, and a Liteon 5224 . . . I can't remember the model number off hand (I'm home sick and I'm not thinking straight) . . . for reading and writing the Cds. I used a Liteon 163d DVD player and the next version up (again I'm having a memory lapse) as the drive to start the game from.
