Weird problem SafeDisc 4.85

Hello everyone

I’ve got a strange problem with Win XP and CD image protected with SafeDisk 4.85.

I have ripped the CD using Clone CD and created an image on my Vista x64 laptop. The CD is working fine even after fresh install of Vista.

I have taken the CD to work and wanted to launch on my works PC using the newest Daemon Tools(with safedisk emulation on) and previously created image and I get an error asking to insert correct CD-ROM??

Any ideas what may cause the problem?


Is it an image or a burnt copy ?

Possible explanations :

  • Some checks are disabled on vista (because of UAC & apps have less control over the OS)
  • If burn copy, some drives can read the burnt weak sector patterns back and others cannot
