    The Alcohol-Team is aware of this "new" protection-behaviour. The only thing I maybe can do is to generate a working "handmade" mds-file and offer it, but this isn't easy as I'm very busy atm. I send you mail in case I find the time to do this task :mrgreen: but don't count on it....

    No, of course not. Don't worry about.

    This is the first time this behaviour occurs on SecuromProtected Game, I already reported it back to Martin and Andrew.

    Check in here for time to time, I keep you informed

    No, I did not read the game myself, I just stated what I considered "common knowledge" about SecuROM - that normally it does not have any errors on the disc except for the possible one at the end of the disc.

    If I had read the CD myself, I would (as always) have explicitly stated.
    The version # of SecuROM was taken from the Games' Copy Protections thread.

    Hope I didn't raise too much confusion...

    SHORT UPDATE:
    I can confirm the appearance of defective sectors in the above mentioned area. Seems like this protection is custom-made. Fuxxx is RIGHT!

    @Sergeij.Gradski: Did you read the CD for yourself? And NO error is reported @3000-xxxxx?? I doubt it. Which Version of the game? The German Version IS protected with (at least) additional readerrors.

    I will investigate the protection deeper tonight and report here.

    Read EXACTLY what I posted - some CD-/DVD-ROMs cannot read these tricky sectors and report them as bad.

    What Sergei-Gradski reports IS that tricky sector. As you have also a bad sector at 6% your CD is probably broken. Try cleaning it with a soft piece of cloth. Always clean from INSIDE (where the hole is) to OUTSIDE. NEVER in circles!!!!!!!! Maybe this will help.

    First, no Securom-Portected Game is knowned to have defective sectors, like SwENSkE already mentioned

    Several users reported to me to have defective sectors between 3000-2xxxx.

    This Game is MAYBE the first (and only) game with defective sectors and Securom-Protection - maybe custom-made.

    I receive the Game tomorrow to investigate this. Check in here tomorrow, maybe we then know more :mrgreen:

    To clear this thing ONCE AND FOR ALL - Securom never ever used defect sectors!! Never! Not even in the latest versions! What they do is use one 'tricky' sector (in most cases at the end of CD);
    INSERT INTO `portal_posts_text` VALUES
    e.g. they place a Mode 2/XA Sector on a Mode 1-CD. Seems a lot of CDROMs cannot read it or give back an error. But normally it should be read flawless - I never got any errors on Securom CDs (Toshiba SD-M 1502, SD-M 1612 and TEAC CDR532S)!

    @ copytrooper yes ur right.

    @sergai it has defect sectors at the beginning and at the end.
    gothic 2 cd3 needed dpm too and it worked with my Liteon DVD LTD163D.
    I also tried to use my acer burner to read the soa disc with same results. defective sectors at the beginning an the end.

    Soldiers Of Anarchy: SecuROM v4.83.55.0008

    Shouldn't have defective sectors except the last one at 99% - confuses me a bit... the new SecuROMs are not supposed to have defective sectors anymore... :?:
    Many CD-RW drives cannot do DPM yet, that might be the problem... what CD-RW drive are you using? And what additional CD/DVD drives do you have?
