    I burned on my PC Call of duty . Secure rom 2.9. It works great on all 3 drives of my computer. I know i have a 1 sheep burner not sure if it matters with secure rom. On my lap top ..I can install it fine ... but it wont read it to load it. Im not sure why? i have a TEHCDW-224E . Im not sure if this is a REALLY shitty cd rom burner or what. I installed the same programs and tried to burn the game with alcohole on my lap top. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes. It had trouble reading the errors on the disk and just went really slow. Its a rather new lap top 2 GH 512 ram. Is it the CD ROM on my lap top? would a 2 shee burner fix this with my PC to make a perfect copy ? or would it do the same thing? Should i get an external cd rom drive for my lap top? I just use it at my mothers house and my fathers house has my pc....any ideas?

    Dont you mean SafeDisc2.9? If it is SD2.9 which i suspect it is, a two sheep burner is important

    Good thing im on the ball otherwise i woulda sent ya to the wrong page :p

    If you need to burn a SafeDisc2 protected game the major consideration is the drive doing the copy; certain drives have certain characteristics that give them an easier time to perform SafeDisc2 copies than others. Such drives are described as being 2-sheep burners. Drives not quite up to the task (however capable of), are described as 1-sheep burners and heaven forbid, 0-sheep burners. So the first thing you need to do is to find out what make/model your burner is and if it is a 2-sheep burner or not. To determine your make and model of your optical drives; if you happen to have Nero Infotools installed, start it up and under the Drive tab, it will list all the relevant specifications and capabilities of your burner. The actual name of your burner is listed in the drop-down box at the top (those numbers before the name of your burner are important too!). You can get InfoTools from http://www.cd-rw.org/software/cdr_software/cdr_tools/nero_info_tool.cfm Once you have determined tha name of the burner, head on over to http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/45121 to see if that burner is listed there or not. If it is listed there, it is a 2-sheep burner; if it is not listed there it is not neccesarily a 2-sheep burner but highly unlikely. Now if you have a 2-sheep burner head on over to http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/23699 to find out how to copy a SafeDisc2 protected game. If you are running a 1-sheeper than visit http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/36444 for the appropriate guide.
