    Ok before I ask the question im going to ask I am going to remind all of you that U.S. Law allows for you to make backups of games for personal use so dont flame me and call me a pirate.. and please unless u have an answer to my question dont reply! Thanks in advance heres my question.

    I recently purchased a retail copy of grand theft auto 3 and as I do with all my games I wish to make a backup copy to use (because I want to keep the original cd's in mint condition and use the backups to **** around with) I used clone cd 4 and copied the install disk just fine but when i go to copy the play disk it gives me buffer errors... I tried to copy with ezcd creator 5 but that wont even touch gta 3. What application can I use that will DEFINETLY copy gta 3. My cd recorder is a generic 52x24x52 CDRW drive and i only use expensive sony blank cdr's (not the cheap 9.99 spindles they sell at frys and best buy) any help is appreciated! :) :huh:

    use ClonyXXL to identify the protection.Clony will add a profile to cloneCD which makes it easier to copy...or you can try Alchol120% it's great program no problems with it

    its safe disk 2 plus secur rom which means if all u have is a burner u won't be able to play it on your pc anyways because secure rom can detect if your using a cdr in your burner.

    I backed mine up using clonyxxl and clone CD 4, here is a good aspi driver
    when I made my backup, it would not work unless I read the disk on my cd-r drive

    Personally I used blindwrite to make a backup of GTA3 and it worked fine.

    have you tried reading the cd to an image file using clonecd with the original disk in the cdrw?

    then put a blank disk in, and burn the image file to the cd... that usually works for me when it wont copy properly using the DVDROM as the reading drive.
