Sims Unleashed Backup Problems SOLVED!
I wrote most of this in the Copy Protection forum b/c it seemed that the new SD2.8 in Sims Unleashed had defeated my LiteOn but since this IS the Backup Forum and others are having problems here is what worked for me!
CloneCD, Blindwrite and DiscJuggler 3.5 failed to produce a successful backup that would play in CDROM's or DVDROM's, I don't run things off of CDRW's or mount them with Daemon, and I also avoid using the HideCDR media from CloneCD so what I always try to create is a TRUE backup.
That's the link to the thread and if you are too lazy I'll quote the success.....
"Philamber by following your directions, using DiscDump and it's FrontEnd I read Sims Unleashed with the LiteOn Writer (setting a max speed of 8x read) also selecting the SafeDisc option in the frontend and burned it at 8x aswell using Nero 184.108.40.206. I clicked on the File menu, then selecting Burn Image and selecting the Cue Sheet generated by Disc Dump, then selecting DAO/96.
So where 2 Pay Programs failed, a FREE program succeeded. VERY impressive I must say.....I hope Disc Dump gets revised if and when it needs to.
Also BlindWrite didn't create totally create a coaster, it just didn't create a correct backup just like CloneCD, the files are there and the backup will install....it just won't RUN off the backup, which is what should happen. "
Also this thread on CDFreaks contains more info on using Disc Dump and other programs to read and write your image
