I bought a used copy of Final Fantasy X and it is damaged. (Plays for a little while, then black). I lost the receipt. I tried backing it up with several programs (Alcohol, DVDdecrypter). I finally succeeded in getting an image. I also dloaded it and the files are identical. I bought HD Advance to try to play backups (no luck), but I did have success with Winhiip and porting the hard drive to my PC with an external USB holder, and then loading the games directly onto the hard drive. The program can also load from a game in your CD rom drive, which I tried as both images I have of FFX didn't work. I've tried using no modes and modes 1,2, and 3 even though this game isn't listed on HD Advances site as having issues or not being compatible. The program did read the damaged disk, but the same thing happens when I go to play the game--nothing but black! Oh, I do have the Slide tool with my HD Advance. I've spent more time than its worth for the $9.99 I spent on the game, but I'm not ready to give up yet. This is a learning curve for me. Thanks in advance.
