Topic: Settlers III Mission CD copy protected by Sysiphus

Hi,  this CD seems to be protected by a few data tracks on the outside of the ring being scratched off or unreadable.  I can't really tell except there's a visible ring on the label side of the disc and it fails to read at about 60%ish. Should I treat this as a form of SafeDisc copy protection and run CD manipulator?

Normally it's protected by Ring PROTECH. What's Sysiphus?

I'm not sure.  I just know it's not safedisc and Wikipedia is calling it that

It's Ring PROTECH and it's very heavy disc to dump in terms of difficulty. You need at least 2 drives to dump it. A Plextor and something else with good reading capabilities like Sony OptiARC. If you want to start dumping I suggest you start with something less evil...
