I’d like to put this in layman’s terms for practical purposes for those who have one of these “Writes EFM almost correctly” cd burner’s (as i did up until 2 days ago when I purchased a new 32x cd burner (Memorex 32 Maxx) which has a “2 sheep” rating for buffer underrun and “2 sheep” rating for the EFM write capability).
I did lots o research trying to backup my sd 2.51 protected games after my backups froze at the splash screen, and this was because I only had a burner that “writes EFM almost correctly” my backup copies would freeze at the splash screen and go no further. The solution for me was to run the latest Daemon-Tools which would allow the copy to work properly and get past the splash screen. Once I tried to burn a backup copy with the new burner which does write EFM correctly, the copy worked properly and didn’t require daemon tools to run.
Also, I’d like to mention that although I’ve seen lots of posts telling people to change their write settings when writing from the image file to 4x I used 32x and it still worked fine.
Regards, and Praised be the Sheep!!!
