Been trying to backup Thief-the Dark project, which has been re-released in Australia on a “budget” label called Red Ant Entertainment (Also features the “Sold Out” logo). According to Clony XXL 2006 it has "ProtectCD-VOB, so I brought across it’s setting for Clone CD 126.96.36.199 to test it on a couple of CDRW disk’s one being a TDK 80min 1-4x & the other a Kodak 74min CDRW 1-4x.
As I understood the Asus 4012A to be a good reader/writer combo, I did make one alteration to the Clone CD settings that Clony XXL had,& that was to switch off Amplify Weak Sectors.
The results were that the TDK refused to work in my Mitsubishi Diamond Data 32xCD-rom drive & the Kodak CDRW worked very poorly if at all.
So I earased & changed the Kodak CDRW with AWS turned ON in Clone CD, & suddenly the results when testing it in the CD-Rom drive were considerabley better. It came up with the splash screen for the Sold Out advertising & booted up into Thief a lot faster.
Now, is it just individual to the “ProtectCD-VOB” protection or does this mean that for all games whether Safedisc 1,2/2.5x etc. I would need AWS turned on? I hate producing Coasters of any sort, so I’d be interested in comments before I try to burn to CDR, (using 80min Kodak Ultima Silver & Gold 12x, & 74min Mitsui Gold 12x CDR’s.)
