Hi, I noticed that my Crysis dvd is getting scratched, and I want to make a backup of it before it goes too far. So what I need to know is how do I use toast to copy an iso image from the Crysis dvd? Thanks

In Toast click on the Data tab and then click on ISO 9660 on the left side. Drag the disc into the center and then click the Save as Disc Image button at the bottom right.

You might want to keep in mind that there is a possibility of the game having some sort of DRM that would prevent you from being able to copy the game.

Thank you Kash, that worked. So now that I have the iso file, how do I burn it to a dvd so it will be just like the original?

Hi Kash! So, I burnt a data disk with toast, and then went to my windows partion (xp sp2) and put in the disk, but when I did, it just spun around for about 20 seconds and then ejected. It didn't even come up with the folder or anything. Can someone please help me!?!

Reading your previous thread the advice given by Kash is bang on. However this isn't just any vanilla data disc.

The Crysis install disc is protected with securom 7 which is designed to prevent people making copies as you are know finding. It introduces bad sectors when being read amongst other things. Give it a Google to find out more.

I'd suggest treating the disc with 'kid gloves' but if it gets to the point it will no longer read, look in the back of the manual and you'll find an address to send it to for exchange. They just charge a small handling fee.

What do you mean it introduces bad sectors? It creates bad sectors on my hard disk or something? Just by putting in a disc? I'm afraid I don't understand.

no, they put bad sectors in on the master when pressing the disc, to make duplication difficult, some movie companies also use that system

Wait a minute, it can't be Securom because after I tried it on my computer and it wouldn't acknowledge it, I tried it on my other computer and it worked. So it must be something with boot camp, maybe.

Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/securom

the original disc has deliberately corrupted areas. During installation these are skipped by the installer. When the disc is read byte for byte these translate into read errors. Consequently when rewritten you don't end up with a 1-2-1 copy

You can play it. You just can't copy it.

As advised before my me and again by Louishen if it gets so badly damaged that you need a replaced contact the manufacturer.

NOTE: Merged duplicate threads.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

if i pay for, say, a toaster and i wreck it, the manufacturer won't give me a new one. i have to repair it or replace it at my cost.

why should media be any different?
