Topic: Can someone explain SMARTE protection?

Disc 1 only had 11 errors, but disk 3 has quite a lot and continues throwing errors until it hangs. Should I try a different drive? From what I understand only disc 1 should have errors.

This is Age of Empires III Collectors Edition. Disc reads fine when I'm not trying to rip it.

Re: Can someone explain SMARTE protection?

There should be 10 errors max for SmartE, so your disc 3 is prolly damaged. Are you using DIC with a plextor drive?

Yeah, 760A but I'm using CD Manipulator

Disc 3 is flawless from a quick glance and it's also from a brand new/sealed package, but it looks like I'm getting a different number of errors when I try dumping it on my laptop's drive. Errors all near the end, but it does dump. Just sucks not having a second copy to compare it to in the db.

uhm, when I rip on my laptop it's getting 14 errors consecutively on first disc. 11 with my plextor.

Could this be an offset problem? I've got a few more drives with different offsets I can try, but I'm gonna have to hook the systems up.

Only DIC can rip it properly. There should be 10 errors...

Oh, I had no idea! The guide says to rip it just like safedisc.

I'll rip it with DIC asap. I'm assuming just ignoring errors is all I need to pass to it?

/rc /d8 /c2 10 is common
