    I made a backup of the games I play the most recently because many of my CDs were getting dirty and did not work anymore, so I wanted to protect the originals.

    One of these games is The Longest Journey with Rings on the CD as a protection. I copied that first CD with the Rings using Alcohol 120%. I am not certain how I did it but I must have used the correct options in order to make a backup of a CD with that kind of protection as I was thorough.

    Now unfortunately the original and first CD is no longer working (it is dirty and scratched everywhere) and I cannot copy it anymore (thank god I made a backup before!). The only problem is I cannot play back the backup. Neither of my drives will recognize the CD when I insert it.

    What software can I use to make this CD readable? I am sure the backup was succesful so is there a way to be able to play the game now? Emulation perhaps, or another software that could make it work? (It is a PC-CD game)

    If your drives won't even recognize the CD, I don't believe there is much you can do.

    That is what I thought. I was still hoping that somehow another application might make that CD recognizable, but there isn't. I have bought a new copy already on ebay, it is so cheap now anyway.
