    Hi there,

    I am trying to figure out how to successfully burn a backup of my Earthworm Jim 2 game. I made a .img file with a .cue, .sub and .ccd file. The image works fine in an emulator, but after burning it to disc using the Playstation option in Alcohol 120, I tried playing it with Breaker Pro, and the game still played fine, but there was no music playing.

    How can I properly backup games that use CD tracks? I bought Breaker Pro so I don't have to use the originals, since EWJ2 is quite rare on PS, so any help would be great.

    Thanks.

    did you make the image from an original disc, back up disc, psx2psp, or got it from a friend?

    Use imgburn, select the .cue file for burning.

    I use alcohol 52% clonecd image format.
    Then I use imgburn to burn cd.

    Since you are using a swap trick the audio might not work because of different TOC info

    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    What do you mean by TOC info? Is this something I can change?

    The TOC (Table Of Contents) identifies the start position and length of the tracks on a disc. The TOC is present on all CDs. If it weren't, the disc would be unreadable on a CD player or CD-ROM drive. CD recorders write the TOC as part of "finalizing the disc.

    This data can not be changed.
