  • SafeDisc
    Company : -Dilla
    Macrovision Corporation
    Protection : SafeDisc
    How to Detect : The following files should exist on every the original CD:
    • 00000001.TMP
    • CLCD16.DLL
    • CLCD32.DLL
    • CLOKSPL.EXE
    • DPLAYERX.DLL

    There is always a GAME.EXE and GAME.ICD file where the .ICD is the original game executable (in encrypted form) and the .EXE is a loader containing a parts of the SafeDisc protection.

    Use Protection ID or ClonyXXL

    Backup Solution : Currently there are 3 ways available of dealing with this protection:
    • 1:1 CD-Copy
      BlindRead & DDump both support this CD protection as long as the CD-Reader supports RAW (MMC DAO RAW) mode reading.
    • Generic SafeDisc Patches
      Create a 1:1 CD-Copy and then use the Generic SafeDisc Patch or DAEMON Tools to remove the protection from the game!
    • Executable UnWrappers
      unSafeDisc or DumPlayerx can extract the real executable from the encrypted .ICD file, just replace the existing .EXE and burn it back to a CD-R or replace it after the game installation.

    If your CD-Reader & CD-Writer both support the MMC DAO RAW mode then just do the 1:1 CD-Copy. If not use the DAEMON Tools, unSafeDisc or DumPlayerx to play the game!

    Protection Info
    The SafeDisc technology is a software-based solution that does not require any changes to standard PC or CD-ROM hardware. It is comprised of both an authenticating digital signature embedded on the disc, as well as a multi-layered encrypted wrapper that secures the CD-ROM content. The digital signature, which cannot be copied by CD recorders or mastering equipment, is embedded by the laser beam recorder at the time the CD-ROM master is made at the mastering/replication facility.
    Company information
    Macrovision Corporation has announced today that Ubi Soft Entertainment, a publisher and international distributor of interactive entertainment products, has signed an agreement to use Macrovision's SafeDisc PC CD-ROM copy protection technology on all of its titles through 1999.

    "Many software publishers are spending enormous amounts of energy combining high technology with great game play but are neglecting to protect their finished product from the growing software piracy epidemic," said Yves Guillemot, president of Ubi Soft Entertainment. "We felt it was critical to use Macrovision's SafeDisc copy protection to ensure protection for our consumers and to maintain our reputation."

    In its first 60 days of production, SafeDisc was applied to over one million discs and licensed at 17 mastering and replication facilities worldwide. SafeDisc was used on a combined 32 Sku's by publishers that include GT Interactive, Interplay, Microprose, Red Storm Entertainment, Take 2 Interactive Software and TalonSoft.

    The SafeDisc technology is a software-based solution that does not require any changes to standard PC or CD-ROM hardware. It is comprised of both an authenticating digital signature embedded on the disc, as well as a multi-layered encrypted wrapper that secures the CD-ROM content. The digital signature, which cannot be copied by CD recorders or mastering equipment, is embedded by the laser beam recorder at the time the CD-ROM master is made at the mastering/replication facility.

    When a user inserts an original disc in a CD-ROM drive, the authentication software reads the digital signature, allowing the program to be decrypted and run normally. If an unauthorized copy is loaded, the authentication software will no longer be able to find the digital signature, and the copy will not run. An important feature of SafeDisc is the multi-level anti-hacking technology that helps prevent the compromise of its security features. The anti-hacking technology is designed to not only deter consumer copying, but to also thwart experienced hackers and commercial pirates.

    UbiSoft Copy Protection:

    Montreal based UbiSoft Entertainment will start using Macrovision's SafeDisc copy protection technology on all their upcoming CD-ROM titles. The SafeDisc technology encrypts the CD with a digital signature which can't be picked up by CD recorders and a multilayered wrapper that secures the CD-ROM content. SafeDisc is currently being utilized by TalonSoft, GT Interactive, Interplay, Microprose, Red Storm and Take Two Interactive.
