XiLock Protection on CD

#1

Does anyone know how to deal with XiLock Protection v1.0 Gold Edition ? I would like to make a backup of a CD.

Details:
On the cd there is a folder called; ‘Lock’ and inside is a file called; ‘lock.dat’ and it is on 832.756 KB.

Hope someone knows how to …

Cheers :slight_smile:

first i tried to access the site and couldnt so then i whois’d it and found out its not even registered basicly meaning it dont exsist so guess i cant get the basic info on that protection,so since i have no specific info on it the only thing i can suggest is getting alcohol 120% and clonecd and just try your luck with various profiles/options


#5

That’s exactly what I’m on right now !! - So far it does not look too good though !!!


#6

dont forget to try the “hide cdr media” in clonecd or “ignore media type” in alcohol


#7

Neither CloneCd 5.1, Blindwrite 5.1.10.136, or Alchohol 120% 1.9.2, can be used to make an image. The work patterns are the same; they read alright until up about 1,1 % and then they ‘die’ or ‘go in ring’ - no more bit transfer !!.
I’ve also scanned the cd with A-Ray Scanner 2.2.0.3. but nothing !!!

Any other idea of software to scan the CD with ?

Thanks nUUK25

You already know the protection is XiLock.
Why do you want a different scanner?
You think if A-Ray said “XiLock detected” you would be more able to copy it?


#10

#9 Right ! - good point !
BUT I have this feeling that there are no such thing as a cd-copy protection called; XiLock, that whatever is ‘there’ is actually something different !! Ofcause, if ‘the file’ is just renamed and the scanning only makes identification on file-names - then I don’t get anywhere !! Hope the scanners are more ‘intelligent’ though !!

Just a humble guess and that’s why I ask for other scanner programs !!

Thanks

When you say it’s stuck at 1.1%, do you get any read errors ?
If you do you could try using ringprotech or laserlock profiles in alcohol or CCD.
Have you also tried old blindwrite 4.x with the “alternative read method” ?

No, I don’t get any read error ! It just stays there and ‘goes in ring’ ! - and I lose patience after 10 min. or so when it is still on 1,1 % !!
I’ve tryed the laserrock profile but not the ringprotech in Alchohol 120 %.

What does “alternetive read method” in Blindwrite 4.x cover over ?

By the way I’ve used the LiteOn LTR 52327S drive and I had a ‘go’ on DVD/CDCombo Samsung SM-348B too. I take for granted that the Nec 3500 DVD won’t make any sense in this context !!

Which game/software is on the CD, maybe that could help with finding the solution.


#14

This obviously don’t get me anywhere - I’m closing this thread !!

Others are most welcome to ‘pick it up’ again if relevant information about Xilock will ‘pop up’.

Thanks to all :wink:
