I am sorry this is reposted but my first post did not go through for some reason. Everytime I tried to click on it it just took me to the main forum menu. Once again I apologize if the previous one shows up. I would like to protect my investment and back up NHL 2005, from all my research on these forums it uses SafeDisk 3.20.022 technology. I also see that it's one of the more difficult options to backup. I tried using the lastest version Clone CD to make a backup into an image file, I guess that is what they call that. Then I tried the latest version of Alcohol 120%, mounted the image, select SafeDisk 2/3 and burned each CD at 2x. I am not sure if I need to use emulation or not. It said it was successful but after installation it still freezes at the intro or crashes back to desktop. I am using Lite-ON 523246S burner which is a sheep 2, I believe. Soon after the holidays I will add an I/O Magic (BENQ 1620) DVD burner....not sure the sheep rating of that. Any thoughts?
