Help backing up a disk
First of all, I bought FEAR a few days ago...and I know how easily disks around here get scratched so bad that they can't be used after a while...so I tried to make a backup...but I have some trouble...
First thing I did was copy it using clonecd into an R file...then I burned it onto a spare dvd I have...and everything seemed to work fine...untill I tried running Fear with the backup disk...then it said that it could not find the original disk...
So, onto my question...how do I make it act like the original disk so I can use it instead of the original?"The problem with quotations on the internet is that the sources are hard to verify" - Abraham Lincoln

It has been awhile since I have tried to backup a Game onto another disc. I don't have CloneDVD so I don't know how that works. Is it a game on a DVD? Is it dual layer? If it is a dual layer DVD-9 disc then you would have to burn it to a DL-DVD.
I would try a different program to try and back it up like Nero.

Yes, it is a dvd, and it is not a dual layer.
I will see if it will work with nero."The problem with quotations on the internet is that the sources are hard to verify" - Abraham Lincoln

It is most likely a protected disk and you'll need a program specifically made to copy [oh, I mean back up] that type of disk.“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”
