Im getting sick and tired of switch cds all the time so i thought i give daemon tools a try. Im already stuck. Im trying to create an iso of my bfv disk (THAT I OWN) and well Alchol 120 wont write it for me. I keep getting errors. Any suggestions?

Nero will copy it,but it will take a loooooong time.I used CloneCD (free to try) to make my images.Takes about 8-10 minutes and plays a fun song when it's done.CloneCD is mega simple so you shouldn't have any problem with that.Remember to name your image file,e.g."BFV",and I save all mine in a file for images.After you do that,right click the Daemon tools icon in the taskbar,turn on emulation options,and mount the image.That worked for me.D-Tools will default to 1 virtual drive,but you can add up to 4 for different games.Hope this helps. -edit-Duh I just reread your first post and it looks like you already know how to use Daemon.OK cool.

This tutorial will help you in making copies of cd's with the safedisk 2/3 protection scheme. Though if you are going to play it multiplayer over a lan or such it's best to mount the image that you make and have the other pc's in the network run off of that one instance, otherwise it won't work multiplayer unless you buy multiple copies :P

Actually Alcohol is having issues with emulating UT2K4 and BF:V... they have changed the format a bit it seems.....

this has been documented in the Alchol forums....

 

I created an image in Alcohol of my UT2K4 Cd, but Alcohol wouldn't emulate it...

But Daemon tools emulates it fine...

 

Seems it is kind of hit or miss thing, but from what I am reading it is still more miss until Alcohol releases a new version....

I use a little know powertoy from microsoft (free to download) called vcdrom.sys

 

it mounts images so well. I have not found any software that can detect it's a virtual cd. All games work with no need to crack.

 

Edit:

 

I was just talking about mounting images, it does not create the images, so it's kinda off topic.
