    Default SecuROM 7 1:1 copy

    My school has had us buy a book from Pearson for a German-language class, and the book came with a DVD. I want to make a copy of this DVD, but it's secured with SecuROM and copying it with "regular tools" such as K3B or dd doesn't work. To be more precise, I can copy the files to another DVD, but the program withing the DVD won't start because it says "no original found", and if I have Daemon Tools running it says "emulation detected" instead, and it won't start. I think the protection is SecuROM 7 or 8 (7.40?) and the DVD only works on Windows (the binary executable file is a Windows binary).
    My question is... can I, and if yes how do I, make a 1:1 copy of this DVD such that I can use it instead of the original copy from the DVD reader?

    I was able to create an image, both with Alcohol (.mds) and with Daemon Tools (.mdx) and I can get the DVD running with a virtual drive. BTW, only with a virtual drive created with Alcohol or Daemon Tools, but not with other drives for example WinCDEmu... and I don't understand why. Any idea why they don't work?

    However, I would like to be able to just put this DVD into the reader and launch the program, without any virtual drive or RMPS emulator. Is this possible at all? I don't really understand how SecuROM works, but what is preventing me from making an exact 1:1 copy? The image that I've created with Daemon Tools, I've let it run the DPM analysis, so I suppose the information is there in the image. Plus my DVD writer is detected as supporting any mode, DAO/SAO/TAO/RAW... and as far as I understand SecuROM only adds some intentional errors in the DVD disk. Can I use Daemon Tools or any other software to make an exact copy that will run from the DVD without any virtual drive?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    1. Needs to grab DVD disc using SecuROM profile to make an image that will be used without original DVD disc - http://daemonpro-help.com/images/grabimage/.

    2. It better to ask here - http://wincdemu.sysprogs.org/

    3. The main idea is to use DVD without DVD itself, so you do make a copy of disc but as an image. The image mounts into the virtual drive that emulating the real one
    Don't worry! Be Happy!

    Those write modes only refer to CDs - not DVDs. There is no RAW write mode for DVDs.
    SecuROM uses a non-standard sector density, which can't be reproduced on a burned copy (at least not without RMPS emulation).
    For SecuROM on CD there was a method to create a real 1:1 backup with the Plextor Premium.

    Some general information:

    Unfortunately not.
