I imaged my Vice City CDs with BlindWrite Suite 220.127.116.11 (latest version to date), and I am trying to mount the play cd with daemon tools 3.29. For whatever reason, when I try to play the game, I get the spinning cd cursor for a few seconds and then nothing. Obviously, it is not seeing the mounted image as a valid play cd. I have imaged it with subcode extraction on, and I am still having a problem. I have seen that other people have successfully made backups of Vice City with the latest version of blindwrite suite, so I am not sure of the issue.
I have made images of my games with blindwrite before and played them with daemon tools without any problem. I know that the Vice City cd is a pain when it comes to protection. Could this be an issue with the cd-rom I am using to extract the image? Is there a later version of daemon tools that would be able to emulate the latest version of securom effectively? (I’d try this before I post except the daemon tools website is down.) Any help would be greatly appreciated.
