Jag Backup question (w/ proof of ownership)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, Yes yes, I'm asking one of the "taboo" questions I guess.

 

But, I need to know how to properly backup my games. I've already

scratched up my Tempest 2000 music disc and so I am now worried

about my JagCD games (I'm really clumsy)

 

How do I make backups of these games and then burn them to CDRs?

 

Attached to post, is photo-evidence that I have Jag CD games,

And if you look at my post "Your cool nook" you can see my

gaming section in which you can see the laptop featured,

and other idenifying things.

 

The reason I'm being so thorough is cause I know that some of you

Jaguar fans are very very against the duplication of games since everyone

would go "ooh pirate eval eval!"

 

As a collector I believe I have some legitimate concerns about the lifespan

of my games and so I am asking how to properly duplicate my games so

I can put the real copies away for safekeeping.

 

Thanks guys :)

I've found NTI Platinum session only recording works the best. Some will copy with Clone CD as well, but not all.

Is there anything fancy I need to do?

 

No special settings for the jaguar? Just tell it to duplicate and let it go?

 

Just make sure that your CDR can write MultiSession Discs. :wink:

Hello,

I just noticed that your old backup question which I missed does

overlap with my new question about burning CD-R's for new games,

as I recently got Ocean Depths, and it is the first CD-R my Jag-CD

cannot read. Also, I cannot back it up to-date, to see if another CD-R

will work better with my JagCD. It's the first time I've had the problem.

 

How did you get on?

Cheers,

JustClaws.

The way I back up my Jaguar games (I only have Blue Lightening and Myst :(, and BIWN but that's a backup already :D) is with the program called Alcohol 120%. I just let it create an image of the cd and then burn it to a cd. Wonderful program :).

I use Alcohol for my other image burning needs, but it is ineed quite a good program.

 

I'll have to look into those D-Skins... those would be great to protect my CD games. Kind of like screen protectors, only for CDs...

When you own literally hundreds and hundreds of disc based games (not just Jaguar) those D-Skins become highly impractical. Look how much one costs and multiply. If they sold them in 50 packs for $10-$15, then I'd start using them.

Get these to protect them. A little easier and more legal:http://www.d-skin.com/intro.html

 

Wow! It's like a condom for your cd's.

Thanks, I tried a few settings, but then discovered that just the audio

CD settings backed up Ocean Depths for me OK. Clone CD had failed,

and Nero failed too. The backup indeed works, and original still fails. :(

 

These "CD condoms" haven't made it to the UK as far as I can see.

Does anybody have good experience of any of these "CD skimmers"

which shave the scratches off damaged CDs? My IS-II CD-R original

is now damaged, and with Telegames prices I'm now IS-II CD-less. :(

 

I wish I'd made a backup, but normally I take great care of Jag stuff!

 

Cheers,

Virgin used to sell them, they might have stopped. They seem a bit faddy and could be difficult to apply...looks liek consumers voted with their feet.

Since it's just the one CD, try dropping by Toys'R'Us and asking them to do it - they charge per-CD to restore them with some high-end kit. Would be very expensive for multiple CDs (it's in the region of £2-5 per disc) but far cheaper than buying a new IS2...

Hello,

That sounds really interesting - but I don't think the stores in my area

(even of the UK) have that sort of thing. They're just like warehouses.

I wonder if a large Dutch one might have the same equipment. Hmm.

 

Anybody else in Netherlands had any luck with these?

 

Back to the original topic, it seems NDI Platinum is recommended by

various people, it seems to be the successor of sorts to CloneCD, it

for sure has dedicated options for Playstation CD's etc., and is ~ $50.

 

I'm going to try my modern fast CD writer as well as my old and

(NUON and Jaguar CD-R writing capable) old CD-writer for this...

 

Cheers to all contributors!

Eh Richard !

I have got a DVD burner Lite-On, it wasn't very expensive and it supports all the format ( DVD-R and DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD+RW DL ) and CD+G ! ( read and write !)

:D

Try it. My local one's like that (went in to get an Xbox pad) but they have a service area off to one side where they keep all the games - the box they sell you is empty and you go off to one side after paying for it to redeem it for a shrinkwrapped version. The service area had a seperate queue area and a little sign up advertising resurfacing.

 

HTH :)
