Thread: DAEMON can't make an image

  1. #1

    Default DAEMON can't make an image

    I'm trying to make an ISO image out of a game of mine, Battlefield 1942(i've lost half of the discs but it can take any disc in to playand i have the cd key on the manual). It says it has hit a bad block and it it either is recoverable or unrecoverable.
    The block is always 1424 and (un)recoverable. Is this due to a faulty disc or copy protection? It also says have you selected the correct profile. I'm a first time DAEMON user.

    Use SafeDisc profile in DT Pro.

    It's part of the copy protection.
    You will get much more of those bad blocks til sector ~10000.
    Some drives are fast in skipping those blocks, others take muuuuch longer.

    If you have such a "bad skipper" you can try the good old Fastdump method:

    P.S.: don't use the ISO format when creating the image; choose MDS or MDX

    I'm using DT Lite.

    Or do you mean the "advanced emulation"?

    Mount what ? The resulting MDS or MDX image in DT lite ?
    If that's your question: yes, DT lite can mount and create those image types.

    Anyway, DT lite's Disc Imaging tool can't skip those bad blocks - has to be the Pro version for creation.

    You have to wait. SafeDisc goes up to 10k.
