    HI, I bought the game Guitar Hero 3 for the PC and I want to make a backup copy of it and I think the game is using SecuROM I am using the newest version of CloneCD and burn one copy to test out and it does not work. Do you guys support 1:1 copy for SecuROM?

    No. And nothing does with dvds without emulation.

    Try Game Jackal

    So as long as GJ supports the game you are trying to backup then 1:1 copy using CloneCD will work (if you GJ running at the same time)?

    No.

    And there's no such thing as 1:1 dvd copy of a Securerom 7.x protected game.

    HI, webslinger so are you guys plaining on making clonecd to support securerom 7.0 to work? Also how do they make securerom so secure?

    I don't work for Slysoft. I'm an end-user like you. I have no clue.

    I'm not sure why you feel it's "secure". GameJackal and a lot of other programs do support Securerom. These programs do employ some form of emulation, though.

    Earlier versions of Securom (v4.x and earlier) only used illegal sub-channel data to protect the disc and was very easy to duplicate as long as you had a burner capable of reading and writing this sub-channel data (virtually all newer drives can).

    Later versions now actually work in a totally different way, analyzing the actual physical structure of the original disc and creating a vendor-specific pattern from the density of the data on the disc. The software issues certain SCSI commands during bootup (other times as well I think) that check this pattern and can determine with a great deal of precision whether the copy is original or not. It's impossible to burn a copy with the exact same data density pattern as the original and therefore create a working copy. This is why the protection works so well.
