Hi folks, I've got a CD of MathCAD 2001i, its old... the company no longer exists as it got bought over and its no longer supported. This CD cost us a few hundred quid and it doesn't look like I can get another one! So, I thought I'd try backing it up being IT admin here. I figured out quickly that it is copy protected as areas will not copy with ImgBurn. Protector ID seems to think its Safedisc 2.60.052 I'm using CC 5.3.10 on Windows XP Pro SP2 with CD Burner: Manufacturer: PLEXTOR Product: CD-R PX-W4012A Revision: 1.07 I'm using TDK CD-R80 blue label CD-Rs. I tried using CC's 'Protected PC Game' profile to make an Image. This it did. To ensure it was a valid image I tried to re-create the CD. I put in a blank CD-R and made a CD from Image again using the 'Protected PC Game' profile. But the CD-R disc isn't correct. The software on my PC needs to validate the CD and claims it isn't the original CD. So as this is the very first CD I've tried to copy that's had copy protection, I'm at a loss. I read in these Forums that CC is suppose to copy Safedisc discs? Can it do V2.60 though? I've came across old V4 profiles of CC that are Safedisc 2 [ignore], Safedisc 2 [Amplify], Safedisc 2 [Emulate]. But how does one use these? What does 'amplify' do? They don't come with any explanation on their use. :bang: Can some bright spark help me out? P.S. My Lowerfilters in the registry is 'ElbyCDFL'. I don't appear to have a Upperfilters entry.
