well...... the lovely maggot posts again a thread looking for some advice from the emuforum members....

the enviroment.....

a maggot with his old LG 8080 B CD-R/RW burner, that just got valkirie profile, and already has MGS for PC since some time ago....

the situation....

well, I don't want to take the risk of having my MGS and VP scratched for any reason...

the question......

- I heard that PS games have a special lock on the CD to avoid being copied, then, how can I burn them (avoiding the lock, of course), so if the backup gets scratched, I just burn another and continue as if nothing had happened?

- MGS for PC is rather expensive here in Colombia, so I don't wanna get it scratched or damaged for any reason.... but I haven't found any burning software that can make an image of it.....

what can I use to make the image then?

THANKS BGNOME!!!!!

and now.....

>psx: thanks BGNOME! now someone is going to pay for this misleading info!!!!

>MGS: well, I already tried clone CD and everytime I run it, the history shows: "error at reading sector XX"

the XX is the number of the sector... (it reads an error at every sector of the beggining)

Your MGS is the pc version yes?
If so it probably has that copy protection called safe disk that has lots of unreadable sectors at the start so in clone cd read to file choose fast error skip and you should be able to back it up..
It will still say cant read lots of sectors at the start but if you then burn the image it will work.
