15 coasters lolololo good thing there on sale
aws
you name i tryed it :frowning:
so if anyone could help iam all eyes:rolleyes:


#3

All Lite-On drives can copy safedisc2 protected games, with CloneCD. If that didn’t work, than your burner doesn’t support it.

Edit:

No illegal matters on this forum!

Why waste cd-r’s,use daemon tools our cd-rw to see if the image you read works before u waste cd-r.

I’m just getting into DiscJuggler and I don’t think it can backup error based copy protection like LaserLock & SD - SecuROM is fine. Your gear is fine and will copy anything. If you have tried the settings recommended on this site then you have other issues - go through the Down & Dirty post and ensure you can tick off all the relevant points.[ul][li]Check your settings again[]Use brand-name media with a speed rating on it[]image to the HDD first[]Read: Fast Error Skip (default settings) - NOTHING ELSE[]Write: Use RAW-DAO, close & buffer underrun - NOTHING ELSE[/ul]
[/li]
If you need to reduce your read/write speeds then you are probably running your gear in PIO mode - check Device Manager and change it to DMA (checkbox will enable UDMA as well).

Hey Futurproof. Actually DiscJuggler has been backing up SD for quite awhile before there even was CloneCD. :slight_smile:

Cheers

I sort of knew this, from some stuff at the Daemon-Tools site, but wasn’t sure - just getting into it >>>>> SETTINGS PLEASE!!! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:


#13

Howdy FP…
I am glad you are trying Padus. Withought a doubt my favourite mastering software.

On Read I tick:
Scan Gaps \ Indecxes (Not sure if needed)
ISRC and UPC (Not sure if needed)
Ignore read errors ( :slight_smile: )
RAW read.

On Write I tick:
RAW write

I have never tried on SD2 so I am trying ‘The Sims - Vacation’
SD 2.51.021 tonight.

I will post my results.

Cheers


#14

The image was Read & Written with my Lite-On 24102B Firmware 5S57

Read the image fine in 14mins 25secs
Wrote it fine in 3mins 59secs

The resulting copy works fine.
A little slower than CloneCD but very good results regardless.

Cheers


#15

Mmmm…trying that…not looking good for some reason. LaserLock fails in the first few seconds, too

:frowning: I’ll post in Software & PM you when I do

(Auto insert is “on” for my Mitsu CD-ROM which shouldn’t affect a read to HDD from the Toshi)

and this is gonna take ages…

ok… i used the settings buy oc-freak on cdclone.
i used a phillips cdd4801 to read and burn the image.
the “dont repair subchannel data” box is grey’d out in my cdclone.
and i dont understand what “burnproof/justlink” is…
i went along with the burn process and of course…it didnt work out.
can you help me plz?
thx


#18

so ive been playing with the settings… i tried this:

-Read: toshiba dvd sd-m1202
Max Speed
DAO RAW
Fast Error Skip

-Write: philips cdd4801
Max Speed
DAO RAW
Close last Session
Amplify Weak Sectors on

i used these settings and when i placed the cd in my dvd and cd-r drives… it autoloaded, the menu popped up, and the sims start up banner popped up. BUT… then it would freeze then give me a message saying something like, " unable to locate cd. eject then restart application…"

… i cant copy this game now can i? :frowning:


#19

I think this new Sims game uses the latest SafeDisc 2 version 2.51. kahkahboy, please check with SafeDisc Analyser (do a Google for this tool). If it’s indeed that version your Philips can’t cut it. You can try fiddling with AWS but that probably won’t work. The same goes for the latest BetaBlocker. So basically you’re screwed unless you can get one of the writers mentioned in the sticky threads.


#20

I’m the originial poster of this thread. :slight_smile:

I have a lite-on 12101B - with the very latest firmware update…so, am I out of luck with burning a good, workable copy of this progam until the code is cracked more thorougly?

I’ve tried just about everything…barring blindwrite! :mad:

TIA
