Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Hello.

I have the original copy of the PC Lego Racers from 1999. It is not patched at all and is meant for Windows 9x (the version found online is patched for Windows NT). I also have the manual and the original CD case but not the original box. Will it be suitable for upload? I checked both logs and only found Lego Racers 2 but not the first Lego Racers.

Looks like the list is correct, Lego Racers isn't on there. The copy of Lego Racers 2 is Swedish.

If you have all the case inserts then your copy is better than the one I was planning to upload.

So far when I tried to dump the disk I keep getting read errors. I'll try again later with the through scan.

Read errors can be due to securom protection. Just to see if any critical data files are unreadable try to copy the contents of the disc to a folder and see if it works.

So do I copy the contents to a folder somewhere on the hard drive and zip it?

No, just copy it over to a temp folder. If you get no read errors then the vital data is most likely fine and you can do a full dump using A120% with the reading errors. It's just to see if you get reading errors when doing manual copy. Make sure you clean the disc properly before dumping and scanning.

So, I actually know the plan (I think). Just pack the files into another iso with Imgburn then see if Windows 95/98 will run it. I don’t have my main virtualization PC yet so I have to wait until then to emulate it (I have another computer for CD-ROMs but they run emulators pretty slowly).

No no no. Just do a plain copy to a folder on the drive. If all files copies properly then do a full MDF dump. Why make it so overcomplicated? The idea is to see if the "corruption" is part of the copy protection or part of the file system.

Or just dump it and send it up with the logs.

When I did my copy all files just copied without error, so it is safe to say that it can be dumped.
