slow ISO reads

    when I tried to copy a DVD Clone CD took about two hours to read the ISO, then 15mins to burn it. I later tried to backup a game CD and after 20 minutes the ISo read was only on 1% so I cancelled it.

    Is it normal to take this long? When I used Nero I could copy a DVD in 10 minutes. My Asus disc drive is new and works fine with Vista.

    Help would be appreciated :)

    Could you please provide some more information?

    Such as:

    - What DVD?
    - What version of CloneCD are you using?
    - Are you using AnyDVD as well? What version? Paste status window text here
    - What game CD was it? Please use ProtectionID: and paste the log here
    - What ASUS drive is it? What version of firmware?
    - What edition and 32/64-bit version of Vista?

    Once we know this information, it will be possible to take it from there...:)

    So you are trying to make a copy of a DVD without using software that would remove copy-protection from the DVD? In that case, I'm not surprised that it is not working...try installing AnyDVD and see what you get...

    It is obvious that Safedisc 4.6 is present, but I have doubts if it is covered by CloneCD. Most likely not, so you'd need Game Jackal to emulate the protection :)

    anydvd is only for movies if i remember correctly. those are game copy protections, which is what gamejackal is designed to deal with.

    CloneCD will allow you to make a copy of a game. GameJackal simply allows you to play the game from your HDD.

    yes, and clonecd allows you to make working copies of some copy protected games, depending on the specific copy protection right?

    It should work on any game.

    That's correct. I believe they have stopped adding copy-protection removal features for some time now, so no luck with the latest stuff. Personally, I don't use it for that anyway...:)

    I've never used CloneCD but 1 or 2 times, there is no need for it. I rarely deal with CDs anymore anyways.

    That's a whole new kettle of fish or can of worms and we better not open it...:p

    Some people use CloneCD to copy DL DVDs to preserve the original layer break, which I feel it doesn't matter where the layer break is. CDs are an outdated technology.

    can clonecd copy dvds? (specifically game dvds)
  16. DetroitBaseball

    DetroitBaseball Well-Known Member

    It should be able to.

    Please note that it's not necessarily indicative of CloneCD being able to copy game DVDs. Game DVDs have protection on them and I'm not certain how well CloneCD tackles the newer versions of protection. If it's just pure data you are copying then it's the best :D

    Well, what apps out there are good for copying new games?

    I don't really fancy advertising on here. Anyhow, back on topic of the thread, let's see what info he can come up with...

    No. It won't. A working backup without any kind of emulation is dependent both on the hardware (burner/reader) and the copy protection on the game.
