Is there a way to burn or make an image of the games having Safedisk protection?????
What about this
This page contains SafeDisk Patches which are used to patch up a SafeDisk Protected game so you can play a burnt game as a personal back-up copy which is perfectly legal.

SafeDisk Patch v3.1 (44.5KB)
Generic SafeDisk Patch (14.6KB)

Just make an image, mount it and play - no big deal. :lol:
SafeDisc2 and above a more hardware depentend during writing, so you either need to play from image alone, or use emulation feature. Note that newest versions are not completely supported by Daemon Tools emulation yet, but will work from mounted image.

How can i play from the image when the game has copyprotection software called Safedisc????? If i have an daemon tools installed it says EMulation software has been detected and bla bla bla!

If it's SafeDisc there's other cause of that message. e.g. CloneCD's Hide CD-R media function. Disable that function, and the CloneCD tray. SafeDisc has no problem with Daemon Tools virtual drives.

I deleted cdclone!!!! and still gives me this message, i had to create a new account and run the game from there!! By the way Daemon tools is the problem also as it has emulation options and even if u disable it, the game will still give you this message

Please, please do me a favor and read through this forum here. You're not
the first and not the last with that problem and Daemon Tools is not
the reason. I think we already answered it hundreds of times already:

You don't have to remove CloneCD only, but also the CD-Tray, where
CloneCD installs the socalled HIDECDR function, which is blacklisted.
Daemon Tools isn't. Period.

I don't want to sound rude, but please research better next time, you
confuse other users that read such postings. It's no offense, but please:
take the time for a really intensive board-search. We don't want to answer
the same questions over and over again. Millions of users already used
Daemon Tools and I can assure you: it's not because of Daemon Tools
Emulation.

Also I strongly!! suggest to read the Daemon Tools Manual. You can reach it
due to the tray-symbol (right-click, then ->help->manual)

BTW: I have the Medal-of Honor-series here, every title runs flawlessly, just for your interest. If you read through the board, you will find other users that confirm exactly that

Thank you!

Nero is not blacklisted by SafeDisc or, as far as I know, any other copy protection. But that's because it's not really capable of duplicating copy protected discs.

I suggest you have a look at Alcohol 120% for creating your CD images - check the link in my signature :)

Daemon tools is good too, why to use alcohol?? They are similar anyway.

But how do i delete hidecdr function??

DAEMON Tools is only for mounting CD images, you'll have to use other software to create them. That's what I recommended Alcohol 120% for.

But why if there is no problem with daemon tools as Administrator said!!
By the way how do you instal in expert mode? And u ment to rename the files into smth else??



HIDECDR FUNCTION HOW DO I GET RID OF IT????????????????????????

NetSoerfer

No, don't rename any files, Daemon Tools won't find them anymore.

Deinstall Daemon Tools, reboot, then reinstall Daemon Tools 3.47. During the installation, the install dialog will ask you whether you want to install DT in normal or expert mode (you'll see!). Choose expert mode, then the install dialog will ask you whether you want to change the bus driver and scsi name (again, you'll see).

I don't know how to deinstall CloneCD's hide CDR function, sorry.

You may take a look to THIS (http://www.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/portal/viewtopic.php?t=4590)
thread. Inside you will find a short explanation how you can remove the HIDE-CDR.

BTW: I found that thread by using the search-function! Although we really want to help people here, we also strongly suggest to invest some own "work", too.
It can't be that we answer the same questions over and over again. The answers are already there, you only have to LOOK for it.

Don't blame us when we start to ignore questions like these. I ALWAYS will from now on recheck if answer was already posted - help us to keep the
more or less high quality of our content up-to-date!!

Hi, I have a Safedisk protected NBA Live 2005. I did a .mds image for it. When I mount it there's a communicate which says that the game detected a CD/DVD emulation soft which must bu turned off.

What should I do?

Sorry if this has been already explained but I didn't find anything about it :oops:

NetSoerfer

Well, it tells you that it found a CD/DVD emulation software. So what software of that kind do you have installed?

michelin

Daemon Tools 3.47 and Alcohol 120% 1.9.5.
I also have Nero 6 but I guess it doesn't count as an emulation soft.

Alcohol 120 % has got a virtual cd function, too. Try to turn the function in alcohol off.
