Does anyone know how to burn discs Exactly? I really mean exactly, copying everything from data protection to errors, bits by bits. Better still, bypassing all the copy protection stuff.
Okay, I suppose i should give a Scenario. I wanted to copy a disc called Microsoft Encarta 2000 but it just wont copy. Instead the drive just keeps spinning and stopping and spinning again. i left it there for half an hour and that still happens.
Another example, I wanted to copy the Sims 2 disc 1. When i start copying, messages on Nero comes up saying "unrecoverable error at xx:xx:xx".
Now is there a software out there or a plugin or some kind of patch for nero to copy the disc like those mentioned above?
Thanks for help
Well this can happen for 2 reasons, its scratched or its protected, you could get something like CD Clone, that breaks through everything
sounds to me more like a hardware problem than sofware problem...
are u able to copy any other discs normally?
It sounds like the problem with your disc then the way you are trying to burn.
I got that error once, What I did was cleaned the CD with slightly wet cloth (not many will recommend you that tho lol) and then let it be dry and try again.
Instead of using a wet cloth, use a cloth with some 70% alcohol on it. I wouldn't use anything about that, I've heard that 90% alcohol messes up cds. 70% works great though, I use it for my comp cds, Playstation 2, and XBox cds. Just brush from the hole out, not around in circles or anything like that.
Thanks for all the replies! I gave my disc a clean and so on with alcohol but the errors still went on when i tried to copy the Sims 2 disc 1. Same error message keeps popping up. So i left it in the drive to go on for say 15 minutes and when i came back Nero reported that the burning process has completed. I tested out the burnt copy of the disc and it WORKED!!!
by the way, I have a Liton 40x12x48x cd burner.
Thanks all for replying, Cheers!!!
p.s izcool, thank you for sharing that nice piece of article with us.
I use Sonic to copy all my files. It just breaks through anything you want. But I dont go to the illegal way!!
