I’ve had my very first failure since using the lite-on 32x12x40x ( driver version 5.1.2535.0) and clonecd (126.96.36.199). The title is Empire Earth - The Art Of Conquest. Game will not run from the backup. PC just sits there reading the disk in the disk drive forever. The NO CD patch works. I use a Creative 52X cd-rom drive for all software installations.
I suppose this is the new securom protection I’ve been reading about, hmmaahhh?
Other backups of newer titles have worked perfectly, including Icewnd Dale II, Celtic Kings, Warcraft III.
