    hey fellas i was backing up my pc game The Sims Deluxe,but when i was reinstalling to see if the backups work,i keep getting a component transfer error whenever i put in the 2nd cd as the installshield requests...i tried that Clony thing to scan the cd (haven't really gotten the hang of that yet lol) and it was safedisc2.7...so i know i used the Alcohol correctly...the first cd works and runs the game after its been installed but my problem is the 2nd backup cd wont install..any advice?..Thanks

    hi

    it seems your first dics isnt backed up properly!

    i would check the appropiate program needed for the job has all settings correclty done! but sorry i dont know these! also i think your burner needs to be a 2 sheep burner for safedisc 2.7?

    the best person for help is SHOEY! hes pretty up on this new type safety encrption!

    Thx.......

    yeah i realize the problem is with the first disc,but why is it getitng problems?...i successfully backed up my Sim city4 and Fifa 2003 with the Alcohol program...but i dont understand that component transfer error with the Sims Deluxe especially since its a kinda older title compared to simcity4...does the 2nd disc have any protection by the way and what setting should i use to burn that?..my hardware is a Lite-On LTR 40125S,Celeron 755mhz with 512 RAM...where are those hot shot mods? :)

    Hello

    This is very interesting! as you say you backed up sim city 4 and fifa, i wonder if clony is reading it wrong as there is safedisc 2.9 now and clony hasnt been updated latly? this may be your problem - try to find other games of safedisc 2.9 and see if this error is known on them and how they over come it!

    Thx....

    Clony siad it was safedisc 2.7..saw other people say the same thing,also the 2nd cd as far as i can tell is just a data cd,therefore there aint even protection on it...this game also installs kinda differently...you put in the 1st cd then it stops at 95% then asks for the 2nd cd,downlaod the data files then asks again for the 1st disc then the other 5% is installed..so i took my original 1st cd and instaled it then slipped in my 2nd disc which was a backup,then i put in my backup of the 1st disc and it worked....but my problem is that i want to only use the backups to install and run the game,i dont want to use the originals...where's shoey and aldaco by the way?

    Safedisc 2.7 is a breeze to backup if you own a "2 sheep burner" (EFM encoding). Usually in this case you have 1 cd that has the Safedisc cd protection and the other just an "install" disc. If you backed up Sim City 4 (Safedisc 2.8) with success as [bold] both [/bold] cd's are Safedisc 2.8.x protected, then you should have no troubles backing up The Sims Deluxe m8. I've read at many forums that DiscDump\FireBurner seems to be the more preferred method for backing up Safedis 2.8 and up. Why Alcohol 120% failed you< I dunno. Maybe try and slow the read image and write a bit m8.

    I must convince Rotary to purchase an Lite-On LTD 163/165/166 DVD-Rom as this bad boy bypasses atip and plays backups of the latest Safedisc 2.9 flawlessly (hehe).
