Okay, It’s really simple, for everyone saying “hurrr... just use isobuster”, shut up. Just because it works for you and you feel that you so 14-year old savy, doesn’t mean your being all th helpfull...
Depending on how the MDS/f files were made they will span across multiple files for one DVDR (but this is only on NTFS so probably not likely for release groups)...
I mounted the other two drives using Daemontools, all the cdrs come up as regular drives, installs as normal.
Now you cand burn MDS files using Alchohol, Nero, and DVDDecrypter, the final being particularly good (along w/ DVDShrink) in backing up DVDs...
No need to extract files, no need to do anything fancy that EVERYONE says works for them... there are a lot of ways to do this, but virtual drives save you disks and whats the point of burning 3 disks come to find out it wont install properly due to some cock-up from the release group or incopatibility or whathaveyou.
Any other questions I’ll be happy to answerthem, if you type them in coherent englsih.
the file is MDF and MDS. i know i need to make an ISO file and i did it..using ultraiso magiciso i basically tried all lol
but when i tried to run the game it have me a blacscreen (using xpsx) i am not even sure that i made a correct ISO file in the first place...
Okay to fill you in the reason the file is in MDS and MDF format is because it was made with Alcohol 120 which a 30day Free Trial can be used to burn. The thing is if you use nero to burn the files you may not get the copy pretection back onto the CD and then you just burnt a useless disc so leave the file in MDS-MDF format and hit up Alcohol Softs website and Get the tial of Alcohol 120 or you’ll just be wasting CD’s. Otherwise you’ll need a NO CD crack. Also if you want to burn the disc correctly in Alcohol 120 you need to know what profile the GAME/Program used... Look in up online a gamecopy world or somewhere else and then you’ll now if it is Safedisc2/3 SecuRom ... etc. And enjoy a good burn. Note some older burners can’t burn past copy protection!
still lost after reading the previous posts in this forum..
i downloaded sims2 alcohol clone clonegame, used alcohol 120% to burn it to 4 cds (but im not sure if i burned it on the safedisk mode , if that matters..) when i try to run the game from disk 1, the program exists itself even though the installation was successful. please help?
All you question askers are dumbassess. Learn to read the previous posts, theres seven pages of them! Not hard to figure out how these things work jesus christ. I bet all of you dumbassess use BT, emule, shareaza, kazaa, limewire, or other similar p2p programs that are basically click and go, try using newsgroup and you’d be on the floor crying like a baby. Gee, what do you think you need to do to burn a friggin cd. Well lets see, you got one that contains the data, the big file, and the other that carries the cd info file, the small one. Well wtf do you think you do? Or maybe you could try it out, not really hard if you don’t delete the original.
hey i just wondered if i could get help on 2 things..
the first is, i d/l-moderated-t came with 48 rar files worth of mdf/s stuff, and each one says that its 51.2mb, but when i open the rar the mdf is over 2gb. do i need to burn all 48 of these cuz that sounds ridiculous.
secondly, is ther a way to use these without having ot burn them to a DVD? because i dont hav a burner on this comp
thx a lot 4 any help
Start with the first rar file (when you unzip it, it will also unzip the rest of the rar’s and create the image.
Also for people with the MDS / MDF files. Use Daemon Tools. It’ll create the virtual drives and then u don’t need to burn the files onto disc, which may seem a little overwhelming, i dunno.
Fuckers, DO NOT CONVERT TO ISO.
It’s .mds for a reason. .mds files are 1:1 copies meaning that you can burn or mount the images with the CD protection and stuff. Otherwise, you need a crack or loader to play the game.
These message boards look like the fucking special olympics, only for the PC-challenged. I’m all for asking, teaching, learning, but for christ sake, take a minute or two to read and you’ll probably find your answer w/o having to post the same shit over and over.
And BTW, there is this wonderful tool called a search engine(you know, like google).
.MDF/.MDS are Alcohol 120% files as you should now know.
.RAR, use WinRAR or similar to extract.
.NRG, use Nero to rip or mount.
.CCD, use cloneCD to rip or mount.
.ISO, most ripping apps cover ISO’s.
.BIN/.CUE, same as .ISO’s.
I realize we all have questions sometimes, but it just frustrates me when people can’t help themselves, at least to some extent.
One more time... SEARCH ENGINE.
If you have MDF/MDS files and alcohol 120%--
Open Alc120%, select 'image burning wizard', and direct it to open the .MDS file. This instructs Alc120% what do do with the .MDF file (very similar to .BIN/.CUE files). That should be about it unless there is something you left out?
Check this page for a walkthrough:
Good luck, post back.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem? I have burned a mdf and everything turns out fine. But when I go and try to run the program on the new cd copy it tells me that it’s 'not a valid win32 application'.
Program used: Alcohol 120%
Method: RAW DAO

How do I burn a CD if I have the .mdf file only? If there’s way, let me know... thanks in advance.

In your dreams only.
you can burn .MDF to CD without .MDS. The software 'Daemon (http://www.daemon-tools.cc)' (a virtual CD emulator) can read the .MDF directly without any .MDS . You can emulate a .MDF to virtual CD with 'Daemon', and then do a CD-COPY with any burning software.
