My laptop is unable to read any back-ups made with BlindWrite 5.0.2.

The discs work fine in other PCs and laptops, just not in mine. I can explore the disc, however, I'm unable to run the back-ups of any games. Is there some form of security feature built into certain laptop vendors that I'm not aware of?

Thanks!

Check this Google link out, you will find your answer there....looks like copy protection is the snag.

Sorry, but that Google search didn't really help my situation out any. I've done some more troubleshooting since that last post and I've mostly confirmed my suspicions that the problem is with a setting on my computer, rather than my CD-RW drive. I use an external LiteOn CD-RW on my Gateway, so I hooked it up to a friend's laptop and the disc read fine. He was able to install and play from the back-up (I made him uninstall and took my program away, of course....no pirating here. No sir ; )

However, it still won't play on my computer. I'm thinking I've missed some security setting to allow me to read protected content from burnt media, or something of this sort, but I've never heard of anything like that outside of Windows Media Player.

Here's my laptop's specs:

Gateway 400 VTX
P4 2.2 Ghz
512 MB RAM
No Video or Sound Card
Windows XP Home SP1 w/current updates

Thanks for any help (and thanks for the attempt)!

Did you check your event log? Sometimes the errors that show up in there can give you a clue as to what is not happening...just double click on the error and a window will pop up and give a discription of the problem.

Did you log on as admin when you tried to run your external cd, maybe the rights aren't granted to the user. Keep us posted.

I had already checked, but no, there was nothing in my event log. Yes, I'm logged in as Admin--I've checked the block on all _obvious_ settings--yet I'm still at a mystery. And even further in depth Google search has yielded nothing. I think I give up...

One other thing to check, do you have the latest firmware for your cd-rom? If not, download it from the cd-rom manufactures site and flash the chip. The update may allow you to read the cd-rom your are having trouble with.
