    Though it could be easy implemented i haven't seen that content check to be handed in later with patches (only the blacklist gets updated).

    Titles published with SD 4.0 patched to SD 4.5+ -> mini image works
    Titles published with SD 4.5 -> mini image doesn't work

    Thanks for that - I ticked everything & it worked

    Now I just need to figure out if I can disable the physical drive automatically with a wmi script.

    didn't use DPM, and the read speed was stuck on max.
    did tick, skip errors, and advanced sector scaning

    also tick the safedisc protection in daemon tools, just to be safe.

    thanks guys for the help.

    There's no need to enable the Safedisk emulation, all the emulations only are needed if you use a CD-R. Its better to disable all emulations because i remember a conflict with a Sims add-on and the safedisk emulation.

    Default Not a problem

    OK ... so the problem is that the virtual disk will not work if the IDE drive is enabled... so lets just script it so we can disable it...


    First, we download a nice tool from microsoft called devcon
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/311272

    This is a command line tool for the device manager.

    Next we create two scripts:

    disabledvd.vbs
    '*****************************************
    'Edit the following line to point to the location of devcon on your system
    devcon = "c:\devcon.exe"

    Dim oWshShell
    set oWshShell = CreateObject("wscript.Shell")
    oWshShell.Run devcon & " disable *DVD*",0,true
    '******************************************

    enabledvd.vbs
    '*****************************************
    'Edit the following line to point to the location of devcon on your system
    devcon = "c:\devcon.exe"

    Dim oWshShell
    set oWshShell = CreateObject("wscript.Shell")
    oWshShell.Run devcon & " enable *DVD*",0,true
    '******************************************

    Once you have those two scripts on saved on your computer your ready to create your daemonscript.

    1. Mount BF2142 image
    2. RunApp - disabledvd.vbs
    3. RunApp BF2142
    4. WaitForApp - BF2142 to terminate
    5. RunApp - enabledvd.vbs
    6. UnMount

    so far this method has worked for both BF2142 and Civ4.

    What if you don't have physical drives in your machine?

    I have My main system (DVD/DVD-RW etc) and a machine that I only run Virtual Drives on and get the same error on both machines.

    Would the same steps be necessary for a machine with NO physical drives?

    Sorry to sound like a total newcomer but how do you create a script? Thanks.

    You could also use SD4Hide, atleast I think so. It has worked on every version I've come across but haven't tried with 2142 yet.

    If I knew what safedisc actually checked on the disc I would try my hand at making a mini image and testing.
