Copy protected disks (Sierra)?

Post by brijohn » Fri Jun 02, 2017 8:06 pm

Is the disk based copy protection used by sierra supported with this HxC Rev F?

I have backups for several Sierra games that were made using my Kryoflux. However when converting these streams to the HFE format and launching the game it will hang the computer while trying to read track 6(The copy protected track) and i need to reboot. This happens on all of sierra games I've tried so far, both 2.5(720k) and 5.25(360k) disks.

I also tried on of my Origin games which uses a different disk based technique and it worked fine, so it seems to just be an issue with the protection used by Sierra.
