Backup My Horse and Me 2

hi guys, long time lurker and reader but 1st post

I need to make a backup of my daughters DVD My Horse and Me 2. It is a very well used DVD and I have noted it is getting a tad scratched, so I would like to make a backup before it becomes even worse.

I have tried Alcohol 120% and Ultra Iso but both failed (both are latest versions as at today). I am happy to pay for a solution if one exists. From what I have been reading and from what Alcohol 120% analyser is saying it is tager protected.

I am not interested in a download of the game as we have it plus our monthly bandwidth would not allow us to download the whole game anyway, this is a genuine backup request. I hope someone can point me to a known fix to enable me to make a backup of the game.

Cheers all and I hope someone can help.

JW

Why not make a backup in ISO format, with a simple DVD copy program, and then use a no-CD patch?

Thanks Joe for the reply, however as I stated in my post above the creation of the iso failed, which I assumed was due to the copy protection. Are you saying that the iso file should still be able to be created using Ultra iso or Alcohol 120%? Or is there a better solution to create the iso image?

Thanks

You need to find out where the read appear: are they related to the Tagès protection or the scratches? If Alcohol 120% was able to find out the protection then it should also be able to make a working copy - at least, in the form of an MDF+MDS image. Because of how this copy protection works, there should be no read errors at all while making an image so UltraISO should work, too.

The fact that neither worked suggests that the cause is the scratches. Try to simply copy all the files from the DVD into an empty directory on your hard disk. If you get error messages again then trying to back the DVD up is too late now.

If you don't, copy this package of files to a "virgin" PC, where the game hasn't even been installed yet, install the game and the no-CD patch. If the installer does not check copy protection and, after full installation, the game doesn't need DVD for accessing files on it, "only" to check the copy protection, then this should work. If the game does need the DVD for files, burn the package of files onto a DVD (along with the original disc label!) and see if that works.
