    could be either settings used to burn for the right type of protection on game disc maybe?

    and you say it does not work? well what hapens? or what errors do you get?

    Most "EA" games have Safedisc cd protection on them. If this is the latest Tiger Woods PGA Golf then it's probably Safedisc 2.8.x cd protected m8. Use ClonyXXL to scan each disc to determine which one has the cd protection ot it (mosttly the "play disc"). Use Alcohol 120% and use the Safedisc 2 datatype to rea\write. I would read at 16/20x and burn at 8x. You can use Nero to bun the non-protected discs but I encourage you to read\write slow.
    Depending upon the brand name and model# of your burner will determine if you need emulation to play your backups.

    Open Alcohol 120% and go to emulation and enable all. [bold] Minimize Alcohol 120% to system tray (startup) [/bold] and insert cd 3 in your burner and try again. Hope this works...

    no still dont work
    could this be a license problem when i explore the error from windows it says something like license digital id ?

    can you tell me wat settings to use for burning that image file as i said that work fine when mount to virtual drive

    i originally copy disc as per totorial on this site
    there is one thing i remembered when i went to install all 3 disc .disc 1 install was ok
    then it ask for disc 2 media that was fine to then when i got to disc 3 courses it stop half way and said do i want to exit setup prompt i didnt press antything
    so i installed the original disc which then it carried on loading might this be the problem ?
    if need be if you could give me the tutorial for safedisc 2.8 protection and i will do all again and use cdrw
    many thanks

    Uninstall Tiger Woods then reinstall the originals with your [bold] burner [/bold].
    Now open Alcohol 120% and to emulation and enable "ignore media type". Open Alcohol 120% image making wizard and choose the Safedisc 2 datatype profile and read the image(s) at 16/20x. When all finished open the image burning wizard and use the Safedisc 2 datatype profile to burn and burn at 8x (RAW DAO). When all finished insert the "play disc" (CD 3, looks like) and see if you can play the backup from your [bold] burner [/bold]

    It appears cd 1 and cd 2 are fine and cd 3 is Safedisc 2.8.x cd protected. Give Blindwrite Suite 4.5.4 a try as I couldn't backup The Sims Superstar (Safedisc 2.9) with Alcohol 120%. Blindwrite did the job for my Memorex MAXX52 cdrw. Basically you read the image of cd 3 using "alternative read method" and read at 16/20x. After you've done that open the burning wizard and locate the image file and burn DAO pw at 8x. Go to general settings [bold]before you burn then enable "enhance weak sectors"[/bold]. Again, play the backup in your burner.
