I'm able to burn the images w/o error....I've not received any errors - but the cd's are recognized by their respective software as "the original".

Out of nearly 25 cd burns now, only 1 cd is recognized as the original cd...but that is only if I create it and execute it in my dvd burner. (even after created, it will not execute as the original in my cd drive).

Call of Duty was the first game that I backed up. I burned a disk image and then wrote it to disk. Works perfect. There are four computers in our home and it works on 3 of them. I have not tried it on the fourth, but, it has worked in every CD rom reader that I have put it in. The copy appears to be an original on any of the systems. It will install and play. I am using Plextor PX-W4824A and Pioneer dvr-107D on Windows XP Pro.

If you are running Roxio 5 or 6 with DirecCD or Drag-to-Disk it could be conflicting with your game X copy. I know it does with DVD X copy in some cases. I have also successfully copied Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets, and others and have had no problems. This program really works when you get the bugs out.

Media can also be a factor. I used KHypermedia, I know this is probably an X brand of some kind, but it works with my burners.

Hope this helps, good luck

I have also found that you have to not only get compatible media for your burner; it has to be a combined compatiblity with your burner and application. In other words, if you're using Plextor PX-W4824A Pioneer DVR-107D and KHypermedia with Games X Copy; that particular combination may not work well with Roxio 5 or 6 or Nero.

I have owned numerous brands of burners since 1999 and I have run into this problem repeatedly. I know this is a hassle, but for me it has been a fact.

Hope this helps.

This is very important: Shut off DPM mode before you even make a disk image, then, copy your disk image to a blank.

I am running XP Pro and I also am getting the error message while it is writing the image, this will not mean anything when you make your copy. Just let it go ahead with the errors, just make sure you have DPM mode off otherwise your copy will not work properly.

I think Win 98 has problems with this particular game copy anyway you do it. But, I got it to work on my son's Win 98. Talk about that later. If you do this in Win XP you should have a perfectly good copy.

Good luck.
