Actually, that game is on my list to purchase. I may get it instead of one of the others I'm looking at, and will try.

I'm not too worried about 321 Studios getting this software working. None of there other products are still on version 1.0 - so I imagine there will be fixes for this one.

Of course, it better happen before May 7th, because that's when my 90 day money back guarantee expires...and if it's not working by then, I'm getting my money back!

well like yourself TIM i will wait a bit longer with the other type of software they produce i think it will not be long before an updated version is due as they did with the good ole dvdxcopy

The only way I got it to work. Was to burn a image to the hard drive. And I was able to use it without a CD in the drive. When you start the program and a image burning step just walk away in watch TV. Ignore the errors. It will take 30 to 40 minutes to complete. But it'll work just fine without a CD in the drive. But I cannot get it to burn to a CD. I have not been able to get any CDs to burn. I get nothing but errors.

My burner works great with DVDxcopy platinum. Pioneer DVR -104.

Please see (Issues backingup Games)

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.
