...because I was bored waiting for a disc burning at 4X ^_^;; 1. Insert the PSX disc in your Burner (NOT the regular CDROM, as chances are it won't read subchannel info) 2. Fire up CloneCD, preferably 188.8.131.52 and up. 3. Click on the "Read to Image File" Button (the one with the glasses) 4. Now select your burner from the drives listed. 5. You'll now see a couple of profiles. We'll need to create a custom one though. Right click on the white area and select "New". 6. Name your new profile "PlayStation Disc" or "PSX Backup" or "PIRACY RULZ!!!111!" or whatever. 7. Input the following settings into the profile: Data Read Settings Read Speed Data: Max Read Subchannel Data from Data Tracks: Checked Regenerate Data Sectors: Checked Audio Read Settings Read Speed Audio: Max Audio Extraction Quality: Medium(Fast) Read Subchannel Data from Audio Tracks: Checked Only Read the First Session: Unchecked Error Handling Fast Error Skip Settings: Off Abort on Read Error: Off Don't Report Read Errors: Off Intelligent Bad Sector Scanner: Off After setting all that, click "Next. 8. Now you name your .ccd file. If you want to have a .cue sheet file, check the appropriate box for it. 9. CloneCD will now make your ISO, or Disc image. Grab something to eat while waiting, or browse for porn, or post at Emuforums, it's up to you. 10. Alright! that stupid clinkety-clink reminder has sounded... Reading has finished. Now get your original disc and put your blank in the tray and close it. 11. Click the "Write from Image file" Button (the one with the pencil) 12. Browse for your file. You can also make the program to delete the image file after a successful burn, just check the appropriate box. Click on Next. 13. Choose the CDRW drive. Click Next. 14. You'll now see a set of profiles for writing. You'll also see the write profile you made earlier, but it's not yet set. Input the following settings: Write Settings Write Speed: 4x (yes, 4x) Weak Sectors: Ignore Don't Repair Subchannel Data: Checked Always close last session: Checked 15. Click on Ok. The write session will now start. This will take ~20 minutes, so maybe you can watch an anime ep or listen to 5 songs while waiting. Don't worry, it's worth the wait. Ok, some of you might ask, "Why burn at 4X when my 1337 burner can burn at 500X?" Because in my experience, the PSX console has a lot of problems reading discs burned at a high speed, like 16X or so, and 4X in my experience is the fastest way to burn them without generating a lot of errors. I've wasted many a blank that way, but after a while I finally stumbled upon the right combination. Those of you who won't use it on an actual PSX console might want to burn it at a high speed, and your CDROM drive might read them well enough, but still, it pays to be on the safe side of experience. It'll save you a lot of money and more importantly a lot of frustration. Besides, burning backups this way also makes my PS2 recognize them for some weird reason. :heh: I hope this has helped you somewhat. If you still encounter problems after following this to the letter, well, I really have no idea what fscks it up. :heh: I've used it for ~50 Japanese Import games, and it has worked every time for me. You should use good-quality branded media though, and not those lousy silver generic discs.
