    Has anyone come across this particular software? SecuROM
    I tried to backup a CD the other day with this software on it and was unable to make a usable copy.
    Is there a way to backup my CD?

    Not to advert so please don't hold it against me, but I have personally worked with farstone... Their virtual drive manager emulates all CD copy protection.. The one useless thing about them is that fact you can't make a real cd just images with ext: *.vcd or *.d00

    SecuROM and StarForce are a problem that cant be fixed just yet. I just hope the intelligible people at sly can work it out. Ive tried reg entries and others. I cant figure it out. but I'm sure they will. I'm not even 100% positive that they are working on it. They might have stopped support on Clone CD. Good question to ask them. The Elby site is gone.

    Ajax are you saying I can make the image and use it in a virtual drive but cant make a disc?

    starforce cant be fixed unless you use a driver removal tool and a no-cd fix...


    securom can be bypassed, even the new v7... there are 2 solutions for this that i know of but the 2nd is a pain in the a**

    1. is to make a 1:1 copy like you would with the older versions which can easily be backed up... then if you have an older less sensitive drive (have one from my first pc) you can actually read the data on the disc...


    2. is to try to trick the SecuROM's main strength.. the Data Positioning System... you can do this by using a so called Twin-Creator or Twin-Peak-Creator which will try to place the data burned on the backup as it was placed on the original disc so that secuROM wont figure it out.

    to use a Twin-Creator is not easy though as you must specify the sector step which variates on readers/writers... and it could take many attempts before you find your reader/writer's step.. once you found it youll know it for later backups though.

    the Twin-Creator i've used the most is the one included in the now abandoned A-Ray copy protection scanner... i have it hosted so you can get it here if you need it:

    oh yes and if you arent looking for an actual real disc copy then the trick by just saving all the files the disc contain into a RAR archive (any archive of your choice will do) and then simply unpack and install when you need it... then use a no-cd fix to play or another emulating software... there is quite a few SecuROM killers around the net which can trick the latest version

    CloneCD doesn't support SecuRom only very old versions.
