Unrecoverable read error

Postby Matti » Sat Jun 27, 2009 8:06 pm

I have had number of disks and discs fail over the time. Today I started process of backing them up into full terabyte external HDD. I'm using Nero Express 6 to create images of the discs. When it came Shadowgrounds' turn, program complains Unrecoverable read error. Files copy from CD to HDD without problem. What's going on?

So you're trying to copy the CD to an image file, basically? Is this the Finnish version of SG? In that case, I might suspect that it's the copy protection that's preventing this. The copy protection was removed in the 1.04 or 1.05 patch so it can be played from the HDD without the CD, but the CD is still protected.

So basically... copy the files manually to HDD, and do the "image" of the files on the HDD. I think that's the best bet.
