Dumping a SecuROM DVD

Post by silasqwerty1 »

Hello! I've been having trouble trying to dump and play a DVD game that uses SecuROM 7. I dumped it as MDS/MDF using Alcohol 120% and mounted it using Daemon Tools Lite. I'm using Windows 10, but I'm running it through an XP VM. I made sure to use the SecuROM preset, and Alcohol 120% claims that it successfully got the DPM information. Despite all this, SecuROM stops the game from running, and it does indeed work when I use the original disc instead of the image. What can I do about this?

Sometimes, it helps to copy the files in a folder-based transfer, clones aren't always reliable, especially in converted or emulated formats. In other words, copy the disc as a folder, not as an image.
