Flawless burns with lite on and clonecd

I used to backup my games with a shitty old 8speed lifes good burner and would always have to crack em if i wanted to play with the burnt cd, so i brought a 40><12><48 LiteOn the other day but i STILL have to crack the bastards!
I read that article in pcpp on the new copyprotections in the new games making them impossible to clone, but its my older games that i cant get to work!, in that pcpp article the guy said "anyone with a lite on burner, clonecd and half a brain can backup mafia properly" but goddam it, man! i tried 4 times... and still have to fix exe to use the cloned cd..
im using clone cd version4, i did the burns with gamecopyworlds clonecd settings for perfect burns, and tried all different read/write speeds.

Clone cd has yes markd beside all the cd burners specs -

Compatible with CloneCD RAW-DAO: Yes
Compatible with CloneCD RAW-DAO Write Simulation: Yes
Supports writing of CD+G RAW-DAO: Yes
Compatible with CloneCD RAW-SAO: Yes
Compatible with CloneCD RAW-SAO Write Simulation: Yes
Supports Buffer Underrun Protection: Yes

has anyone got tips on making perfect copies? and i got nero with the burner, but got same problems using it to. Any help much appreciated.

(and im not trying to pirate the games, i just like to stash my origional cds away and have burnt ones lying about in easy reach and not have to wory about scratches)

When I first installed Clone CD 3 (Too many failures with version 4) I loaded the Pro option and pretty much all work as backups, without a crack. I have found, however, that some don't work that way. For instance, after my pre-ordered UT2003 arrived I backed it up and packed the original away. Unfortunately, the backup fails to start the game without a crack.

try another burning software like blindwrite or Alchol 120% for things the have Safedisc or SecuROM - which ut2k3 uses - and you might be able to make a 1:1 backup

blindwrite is an excellent burning tool. It creates an image first then you can burn. You can get it from www.blindwrite.com

I't's a great program. Don't use NERO for backing up games. It doesn't get through the protection. I had the same prob with UT 2003 so i tired blindwrite and it worked first time. My original is safely hidden.

Fantom CD is also a great burning/imaging making/image mounting prog.

Make sure u set it to read errors i know it takes ages but that is what most copy protections use to tell if it is an original.

I have found that if you use another drive (ie not the lite-on) it should work fine! I was having the same problem trying to use the back up cd in the lite on.... nothing had to use a crack. Installed a cheap assed diamond standard cd drive, put them in ........ no worries no crack required.

Give it a go.
