Hello, I’ve been trying to backup Sims Unleashed unsuccessfully through CloneCD but read that someone did it with BlindWrite. So I fire up blindread and read the image (Which takes a LONG time). Then when I fire up BlindWrite it seems to lock up but it really hasn’t the Cache Bar fills up to 100% then the Track bar SLOWLY fills up…I cut it off at 77 % after 2 hours the following is what I get from the event log of BlindWrite. WHat have I done wrong and why does it take so long…I’ll be going to sleep soon so I’ll leave it “burning” overnight hopefully when I wake up I’ll ahve my working backup…The program stays at writing LeadIn while the track bar fills up…is this normal? Unleashed seems to be protected by safedisk 2.8
I also wrote a file with the subcodes in it so it wouldn’t “generate” them but it still takes as long.
Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1 (Build 2600)
Patin-couffin version 5 in use
Blindwrite Version 18.104.22.168
