    By the way, The only burner I have is a Plextor PX-712A DVD burner and a generic DVD Rom for reading and stuff. I have Roxio Easy CD/DVD Creator as my burning program.

    The 712A is a capable burner for backing up PC games so you're off to a good start.

    For Doom 3 I'd first recommend BlindWrite 4.57 with the following settings provided by Shoey:

    Read settings:
    1) Authorize the use of alternative method
    2) Choose nibble and read at 8x
    ======================================================
    Write settings
    1) NO AWS, NO autoplay enabled, burn DAO pw at 4x

    This combination turned out the best copy I've made to date. It verifies immediately and requires absolutely no emulation of any sort. I wouldn't recommend BlindWrite5 for this title or any other SafeDisc 3.21.022 protected games because it has a known problem with it.


    My second recommendation would be Alcohol 120%. I made a working copy with it although the verification took longer than I like. No emulation was needed for this copy either. Be sure to use the SafeDisc 2/3 profile and set your read and write speed to 4X.

    You can get fully functional trial for BW5 at VSO's site. I know you can download 4.57 there but I'm not sure if it works as a trial version.
