Too Many Bad points?

Trying to back-up Civ3 PTW. When I run the BWA builder, I keep getting the following error:

Error: Bad Accuracy. Too many consecutive badpoints.

What does this mean? That my burner can’t handle the measurement?

Doesn’t work – ran it at x2 and didn’t help.

What is this “End Sector” stuff in the form? Maybe that has something to do with it. Regardless, it craps out at about 8%.

hmm… with which drive are you trying to read?
maybe you mail the blindwrite team with your problem…

I’m using a LG GCE 8160b on Windows XP Home SP1. Tried again last night at x1 speed and still had the same problem.

So I tried this to back-up Civ3:PTW:

  1. Read the CD with Alchohol at x1 speed.

  2. Used the BWA builder to convert the MDS to a BWA.

  3. Burned the CD with Blindwrite.

This resulted in an unreadable CD (I couldn’t even boot with the CD in the drive – the drive lights just kept flashing and nothing happened). The Blindwrite log messages seemd to indicate that everything had been normal – the bwa was detected and handled, no errors on writing.
