I have been out of the loop for about 2 years but I am ready to jump back into all this and I need some help. (Man has this site grown!!!) I have spent a lot of time reading many, many threads but I still have some questions. This is what I want to do:
1)Make back ups for my games such as the 5 disc CD game F.E.A.R.(securom 7.00.00.0128 I think) and CS Condition Zero and Doom3 as some examples. So I will be dealing with different copy protections.
2)Make backups of some of my music CD’s that are getting beatup/scratched in my car but they have that “FBI” label on the back and I hear they are tough to back up.
3)I have a hand full of my favorite original DVD movies that I want to backup.
This is what I have:
Clone CD 188.8.131.52 & RipIt4Me
Lite-on LTR32123S with F/W XSOF & LTR52327(52x32x52)
Samsung CD-R/RW SW-240B & DVD-ROM SD-616T
OS = XP Pro with a AMD Athlon XP 3000+ at 2.17GHz with 768 MB of RAM
I am also in the market for a DVD burner, how is the SONY DRU820A?
Will that SONY DRU820A along with my other 4 drives and updated or new software be able to back up my games, music and DVD’s for reading and burning?
What will be the best software for these different needs and are any of them freeware? Steer me to any links/threads that I will need. Also I was not able to find much help on how to backup the music CD’s.
I know that this thread crosses over into several different forums and if you need to drop it into a different forum or forums, so be it, but I felt that the software forum would be a good place to start and the mods here are really good. Thanks in advance for all the help. Be burning soon after 2 long years!!!
