Thread: WC3 Backup Problems

    Default WC3 Backup Problems

    I'm having trouble backing up my warcraft 3. I'm using alcohol 120%, I have the LITE-ON LTR-48125W and im using PNY 700 mb cd-r's. When I try to make an image, everything works fine. About 3/4 of the way through i get a reading error on block 323568. But the image eventually finishes. The image seems to work with d-tools, but when i back it up and try to play it with the CD, my comp kinda freezes. So i eject the disc and get the BSOD. Once im back to my desktop, i get a message that im missing set up files. Anyone have any idea what i should do?
    Heres my log:

    I don't think you should have any unreadable sectors from warcraft iii. Is it possible the disc is dirty. Also, warcraft iii does not use dpm. From what I know, it just uses simple subs.

    That's correct, Warcraft III is protected with SecuROM 4.68 which does neither have a physical media signature (needing DPM) nor defective sectors. Use the SecuROM *NEW profile.

    If you're getting unreadable sectors, try cleaning the disc with a soft cloth from inside to outside (never round the disc!);
    INSERT INTO `portal_posts_text` VALUES
    try reading with lower speed or try in another drive (which might have a better error correction). If you cannot get rid of this, I'm afraid I don't see any way of getting a working image off of that disc.

    If you get only ONE unreadable sector near the end of the disc then this may be OK - all Securom CDs contain one special sector in the end of the track - some CDROMs may report this sector as bad but it is still ok for Securom.
