Maybe I'm just a freak, but once I get a game (especially an import) I like to image the disc and store it on my backup HD so I can put the disc back in it's box where there is no chance of scratching/damaging it.
However, I read somewhere (another forum, I think?) that someone tried something similar with their copy and got some message that they couldn't read (it was in Japanese) and something about a "Media Error".
Does anyone know anything about this? The guy mentioned using ISO format, does anyone know if there is any more success with an MDF/MDS imaging through alcohol 120?
