Sound with CD Copier
I recently bought IMSI's CD Copier Pro. It copies CDs to your HD for faster gaming. After I loaded one of my games (Sin) it went incredibly fast but with no audio. The docs said that is a possibility if the sound from the game is supposed to go through the sound card. Is there a way to get my virtual cd-rom made by this program go through my sound card? I am using a SBLive! Value and a Soyo 5EMA+ MoBo. Thanks for any help!
The sound or music may be in cd format which may have not been copied to the HD. For this I have found no answer, since I have the same problem with an oldie game: Earthworm Jim SE.
And another thing... why buy that program when fake-cd does the same thing and it is free? [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img]
Honestly I didn't know anything existed like that until I saw it at work and decided to pick it up. [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] I knew about trying to copy to the HD and that that rarely worked. Too late now. [img]/forum/smile.gif[/img] Thanks for the reply.
I've never heard of this CD-Copier program. Try their site and see if they have a patch to correct the problem. I have a program called Virtual CD which does the same thing but without the sound hickup. I wouldn't know where to find it now for the company has gone under. The only problem I've had with it is transfering it to Win98. But fixed the problem by transfering some 95 dll's. I don't own half the games I play due to this lovely program.

Thanks JennyPsyco. I will try some of the other programs to see if they are better. Fake CD and Virtual Cd. Thanks.
Any more info from anyone? Thanks-Dave
USB speakers did the job. All sound works now! Yippie!
I don't know if this will help but when I play SiN with my sbLive! Value I have to change a setting to get any audio.
Settings/Control Panel/Multimedia/Audio tab/Playback Advanced Properties/Performance
At the Hardware acceleration slider I have to go one notch back from Full Acceleration.
Don't know if it will help but its just another thing to try.
those games that have the music problem have 1 data and other tracks are in format just like other music CDs. You can make 2 VCDs, with the same name one data an other cd-music. I noticed once when playing a game rip where cd music was ripped that when i started a game instead of game music there was my faworite cd that was left in cd-rom drive. Try making 2 VCDs
by the way i use virtual cd 3 (vvvvvv.virtulacdonline.com)and virtual drive 2000 (this one is for music)
