    I copied a PC game called Equestrian Challenge using CloneCD and the Protected PC Game option. The copy disc seems to copy ok and install, but when the game is launched it askes for the original disk instead of the "backup". What am I doing wrong. I have been using CloneDVD2 with AnyDVD for ages without any problems.

    This is because of a newer encryption. Please use Game Jackel if you don't want to use your disc to play your game.

    1. If you have virtual drives, disable them. This includes Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120%, Virtual Clonedrive, Clonecdtray, and possibly Anydvd.
    2. Remove packet writing software from your system (including Roxio's Directcd, Nero's Incd, Roxio/Sonic's DragtoDisc, Drive Letter Access, CyberLink InstantBurn, etc.)
    3. What protection does your game use? Don't know? Find out before posting about issues (and include that information)! Use Protection ID. It's a free program. Use ProtectionID and scan your HD directory where the game is installed (right click the icon on your toolbar, and select "scan files/folders"). Or just scan the main program .exe(s) that you find in the game directory on your hard drive. Provide the protection name and the version number.

    4. You may need to enable "hide cd-r media" when running your backup from clonecd tray.

    5. You should give Game Jackal a try.
