I have a much cherished version of the Sony Vaio XP Media Center Edition 2005 upgrade from Sony and found my 2 year old running around with it today. It is no longer available anywhere (not even by Sony) and i need to back it up!!
I downloaded and used the latest blindwrite today and the dvd was unreadable. the log file from blindwrite looked fine but had
6/11/2006 10:39:10 PM warning Media topology ignored.
the data DVD copy would not be read by my PC when it was done. I got "DISC NOT FORMATTED ERROR"
this version was originally created by Q-media solutions.
any thoughts or prayers?? If i lose this it is gone FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! no way to buy a new one.. Seriously!
Finally, i know that Q media uses copy protection. they also copy protect Rollercoaster tycoon 3. http://www.qmedia.ca/CDDVD.htm
you would think that it would not be CP'd but the CD is distributed and branded with SONY on it.
