I have been trying to backup Half-life cdr. It was my first backup I tried and worked. But it took me 4 times to get it right. I tried NERO, POWERCDR, and ALCOHOL 120% with a MAXELL CD-R 700mb. Nero did not work at all. Powercd-r and alcohol 120% the game loaded and was some what usable but froze alot. was not stable. I then used CLONECD, and a VERBATIM Datalifeplus cd-r 700mb and I hit the right combination. It loads and works fine. What did I do that made it work. Is it the Software or the media? Will it continue to work for every game that I backup that is cd-r?
