HELP... I thought I needed 1.4, but I gather this is the one at least you use... now my disc is in pretty bad shap, as it is an original from when it was brand new but sector 0 is fine. I noticed that the disc is supposed to be dumped as a mode1/2048, mine is coming out as a mode 1/2352. I have tried the turorial in the faq's and have used cdrwin4a and clonecd since the one sent to me was expecting a IMG, neither works. I have made a copy (long ago) that I play off of and it is doing the same. I used it first and used the copies of uncd that I found laying about the net after I googled. but they are all 2352 and the program just scans and doesn't find the header. any help as to why this is happaning or what I should do would be great!

I did all of that but no luck (that was the tut I was refering to that I tried) whenever I do it makes a mode1/2048, and uncd just scans all the sectors in the cd, fails to find a 3do header and stops. I noticed that it is not supposed to go past sector 0, but I have let it complete on every occasion. nothing.

If you absolutely can't get un-cdrom to work, there are 'bootlegs' of the 3DO movies available on the net. I know of two such (apart from the low-rez videos on PONAF).

However, since you own a copy of the 3DO game, you are entitled to a digital backup... so I think it would be legal for you to download them.

I can help you locate them if you give up on un-cdrom.

so do i
but it involves torrents
and also if i felt like taking a risk of lawsuit i could send them(72.9Mb zipped)
and about the torrent thing, its not very good, i bought a new cd-rom just to get the 3do cd's to read.

my dvd/cd rw doesnt like 3do cd's, and this new one actually shows that it read something.

I'm reasonably certain that anyone who owns a copy of the 3DO version is entitled to a digital back-up, whether or not they made it. If both of you own it, then you sending a partial backup to her shouldn't be an issue.

You'll really need the file in Mode1/2048 format for unCD-ROM to be able to do anything with it. You can either re-rip the CD with a program that can output .iso files (Mode1/2048 .bin), or you can convert your existing cd image.
With a bit of googling, I found this tool (http://www.downloadatoz.com/winiso/convert-bin-to-iso.html) for that. I haven't tried it, but it does look like it should do what you want. There are probably many other tools just like it around.

As for legal rights, don't forget that every country will have its own laws.

Thanks for all the help guys!

I have some vids now and they work GREAT!
I know a bit more about cd imaging than most, thats why I was going nuts, the file had to be a 2048 I knew, and there was no reason for it to be otherwise. I have been working with cd images since 2 speed burners were the hot new thing, and frankly I could notr see a reason why this did not work. luckily some one very nice I happend to meet while hunting around ended up helping me. I am absolutly positive that you are allowed 1 backup (in usa) but that it HAS to be mad by you from your copy... no if ands or buts. as for converting, the converters I have (and I have about a half dozen) all say the same thing that the cd image isn't in 9660...but of course it's not, the original cd isn't... but luckily I have it working. and I have tried reripping (since the format was wrong and just about everything autodetects) it always comes out wrong. I actually would have looked into a torrent if I could not have gotten help, but that was a last resort since I am on Dialup!

ultimatly I just want to thank all of you again for your good help and kindness.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Glad you were able to get it working without resorting to under-the-table measures. :)
