    I don't think to many people visit x copy game's forum but here goes my question--> I got x copy and burned "Medal of Honor-SpearHead" with no problem, but when I got on line to a server it either takes forever or say's somthing about invalid password, does these games need to be patched like ps2 games to be able to play online?

    Nah, you just need the legit serial number .... buy the game and they throw in the serial as a bonus ;-)

    I have the original, maybe I try to uninstall the reinstal.... nah, screw it, Ill just use the original to play online.
    I have another question, how can you tell if your pc game is securerom protected or safedisc protected.

    Use Clony XXL. You can find it by using a Google search. It will tell you what sort of copy protection is on your CD.

    I found this cool little program called A-RAY Scanner, here's the URL http://www.aray-software.com/ this program detect's what type of security a cd/dvd has. (pretty neat!)

    Does anybody know of any really good program's that can bypass any of these security features?
    I've tried Xcopy games and it only work's half the time, it worked on "MOH Spearhead" but not on "Battlefield Vietnam" this game has a safedisc2.9 protection on it.

    Any help would be greatly apprcia.ted

    Despite that, I'd say either BlindWrite5 or Alcohol 120%. It doesn't get any better than those two.

    I've tried Alcohol 120%, I copy's but will not recognize it as cd-rom (weired)
    I will try blindwrite tonight, see how it goes.

    What make/model burner are you using to back up your games? A120 should have no problem backing up MOH Spearhead. A good working copy of the newer protections is highly dependant on your burner.

    Copy to DVD is for copying DVD movies and BlindWrite is specifically geared towards backing up PC games.

    Battlefield VietNam is SafeDisc 2.9 and Spearhead is SafeDisc 2.8. Both are among the newer SafeDisc versions and depend heavily on a "2-sheep" burner to make a working copy that doesn't require emulation to run. I'm not sure how the A07 stands as far as EFM encoding.

    What speed have you been burning at? I like to burn my backups at 4X - the slower speeds help quite a bit :)

    THANK GOD THIS STRUGGLE HAS ENDED!!!! it was an [bold]ADVENTURESSS ONE!![/bold] I went to Blindwrite's webb site and downloaded their trial version of CopyToDvd and it worked!! I also downloaded their BlindWrite 5 suite and to me they looked like the same program (just different names)
    I first DL CopyToDvd and ran it through read mode, then when it was done reading the disc I selected my folder that my PC game was in then I selected write and pressed copy, when all was said and done it made a perfect working copy of my pc game.
    Such a simple little program has really huge success!

    As for BlindWrite I did the same exact thing with the other two disc's since "Battlefield Vietnam" has 3 disc's alltogether.
    I never knew how much detail these pc games have when it comes to making a back up, but I learned so much from it!

    I hope I can help some of you out their that might be having a difficult time like I had.

    THANK'S -Nephilim- and -forkndave- also thank's -Praetor- I would have never thought of putting in the serial number (J.K.) =)

    And it's never ending! They're constantly ramping up the protections :)

    would the blindwrite5 or the new version of alcohol 120% be able to backup SafeDisc 3.2?

    This is alot of usefull knowlodge that I'll never get to use, but it's just sooo interesting to know. I only have like 4 pc games and ton's of ps2 games, backing up ps2 are so easy and no challenge, but pc games... now that's cool stuff to know!

    Sorry if I'm rambling.

    I imagine either one should do it. A120 is generally regarded as the champ for SafeDisc and BW5 is the SecuRom king. That being said, I've had zero problems using BW5 on SafeDisc 3.10 and 3.15.

    It's pretty bad when you're more excited about backing up the game than playing it!

    That is so true! for me it seem's that I would just buy a game to see how I can back it up, and then let it sit their, and then see what else I can backup.
