    Hi all,

    I purchased a couple of months ago this game and am loving it.....however the disc is starting to get a bit scratched up and so I thought I would make a backup copy of the original. However, clone cd in the latest rev cannot seem to copy it....any ideas on what to try?

    Thanks. :confused:

    Back-up

    I do not have or have tried that so I can't say for sure what will work if anything. All I can suggest is to use the Copy Protected PC Game profile. Use the "emulate" or "amplify" weak sectors option in conjunction with the "Hide CDR Media" option. See below taken from Help file in CloneCD.

    Use "Emulate weak sectors", if you don't know if your CD writer supports correct EFM encoding. This feature works with any SAO or DAO CD writer. To use an "emulated" backup, you need an installed CloneCD with "Hide CDR Media" enabled.

    Which copy protection? Scan the game with Protection ID.

    DS2 protection

    This was the output from Protection ID:

    Scanning -> D:\ds2x_setup.exe
    File Type : Exe, Size : 621664213 (0250DD7D5h) Bytes
    -> File has 621532117 (0250BD3D5h) bytes of appended data starting at offset 020400h
    - Scan Took : 191.532 Seconds


    Not sure that is what you are looking for.....only gives the location of the offset......not sure if that is the guidance you were after to help me??

    Regards,

    Scan the installation folder.
