Hi all,
I just got my new Plextor 2410! I was anxious to test the burners capabilities, so I loaded the Plextools & the latest version of CloneCD. I successfully burned a backup copy of Disk 1 of MS Flight Simulator 2000 right out of the box (no settings changed from default). I was really excited. I then tried to burn a backup of Disk 2 & it appeared to copy perfectly, but looks were decieving. When trying to load the software, disk 1 loaded fine but when I inserted disk 2 as prompted by the install program, the counter loaded up to 94% & then stopped responding. After waiting 15 mins I had to eject the disk & hit esc in order to stop the lockup. The light on the reader was blinking fast. I tried to burn the disk again using Clony's safedisk recomendations of "Fast error Skip" but the next disk stopped responding at 84%. I've finally turned the read speed down to 4x, kept fast error skip selected & turned the burn speed down to 8x, but the latest copy only loads up to 96% & then freezes.
I've tried my original FS2K disk 2 with my backup disk 1 & the load went without flaw!
I'm stumped - both disks have the same encryption don't they?
Why would one CD of the same set clone properly & the other not?
Also, Clony detects the disks as Safedisk 1, while CloneCD Games Database detects it as safedisk 2 - which is correct? Are the settings the same anyway?
Am I doing something wrong?
Should I set the read speed even lower?
Should I try the new "Amplify Weak Sectors" setting (I'll have to hack the registry since I'm in the US).
Sorry for the long post but I'm at a loss.
Please Help..
Thank you in advance
Z

I think it's Safedisk v1. I recently made a backup copy and it worked. With the drive you have you should be able to backup this game with no probs! I have a 16/10/40a Plexwriter, ensure your settings are set to read subchannel data and audio data, select fast error skip and also select dont repair sub channel data. Let me know if this helps! Try amplify weak sectors but I dont think it's essential if it's Safedisk v1 protected. What O/S you using, If using XP this is most surely your problem. I had the same probs in XP and installed ME and everything worked correctly.

Thanks for the input Shane.
Perfect copy!
I enabled "Amplify Weak Sectors" in the registry & lowered the read speed down to 2x - this really didn't slow down the copy process much at all. I did not select subchannel or audio however since Clony did not detect either on the disc. Also, to help narrow down what works I decided to only make a few changes at a time.
Would selecting these have any effect if they were not detected?
Thanks again
Z
