BiNGO! Another SafeDisc Version Bites The Dust With Plex
For any Plex owner that has had problems making a 1:1 of SD v2.80.010+ (i.e. Sims Unleashed, etc) FYI, Plex 24/10/40 and 40/12/40 CAN do SD 2.80.010.
First, I tried with the following with NO positive results:
BurnAtOnce (v0.91 Beta)
CloneCD (v18.104.22.168 and v22.214.171.124)
Nero (v126.96.36.199 AND v188.8.131.52)
I used images produced by each program and images produced by DiscDump (v1.10), as well as, images produced by one program used with another to burn it, etc, etc, etc. They ALL failed each and every time.
The only winning combination I was able to find was making an image with DiscDump and writing the image with FireBurner (v2.17), this produced an image that was able to play in every one of my readers and burners, furthermore, it was able to play in the burner using the CCD and Alcohol120% “Hide CD Media” so obviously this would indicate there is NO blacklisting of the said CCD function, at least, not on this SafeDisc version/title.
The Plexes were all using the latest firmware.
The DiscDump settings were as follows:
-Read speed x4 to x10
-Standard and SafeDisc mode both worked fine.
The FireBurner settings were as follows:
-Write speed x4 to x10 (I worked with rewritables so the speed was limited)
-eject when finished
-enable burn proof
Note, if you choose autocorrect or not it won’t make a difference in this scenerio, you will also probably get an error when near completion, something to the effect of "Sense Error: ILLEGAL_REQUEST (INVALID FIELD IN COMMAND PACKET) (0x05 0x24 0x00), you can disregard this error, I made several copies for testing purposes and ran comparison checks on each and every copy was identical to the original and played perfectly.
I don’t believe I have forgotten anything crucial, trust this helps.
I will continue testing and post if anymore working combinations are found.
Next stop, SecuRom, I got UT2003 in the test tube lined up, wish me luck!!!
