    Default Virtual Drive/Images won't work

    Mounting images works perfectly. The virtual drive has the correct name of the disc-image, too (example: FF8Disc_1). All files are intact. But my computer stopped to accept the virtual drives as a source for CD's/images some weeks ago (Please insert Disc XYZ etc.). Ergo I can't play any games with images, because it's like the virtual drive doesn't exist, although the drive is clearly visible.

    The images were made from a legal copy of the game. I tried different formats and mounting programs, too. But they didn't work either. As mentioned, it worked some time ago.

    Version: Daemon Tools Lite 4.30.1

    Can somebody help me? "Search" didn't help me solving this problem.

    Which settings you used to create them?

    For starters Grandia II and Final Fantasy VIII.

    Settings: default, clicked on the "Make Iso image" icon

    I created another two images with another program, too (PowerIso/IsoBuster). And all three don't work.

    And what copy protection does these games using?
    And what exact settings in DT Pro for Image creation?

    Protection ID refuses to scan the CD ([I] Init cd/dvd sector scan for Drive F
    [x] Sector 16 Read Failure.. Aborting
    - Scan Took : 0.0 Seconds).

    Are you sure the copy protection is important for solving the problem? It was working before after all.

    Regarding the image: I didn't see that much options while creating the image-file. After clicking on the icon, it just wanted me to select the path. Autostart was/is disabled.

    It is possible the copy protection blocks it.

    Have you tried to uninstall the games and reinstall them from virtual drive?

    I was also talking about file scanning and not sector scanning for Protection ID.


    In Image Creation window you can setup Profile (Copy Protection).

    As far as I can tell installing works, playing not (both with the images).

    File scanning doesn't work, either.

    And no, there's no Profile option available in my window (neither any other option).

    Could you upload game exe? File scanning has to work, even when it just doesn't display something.

    For image creation: It is always better to use PRO version and not just Lite - that's why you don't see any profile.

    Also does it display the mounted image in My Computer - before and after starting the game?

    How can I upload a file here? I'm afraid I forgot how to do it.

    Yes, it displays the mounted image before and after starting the game.

    Megaupload, Rapidshare - just one free hoster is enough.
