3. You need to create the image in MDS format.
Change the file name if its incorrect, then click "start".
4.Select the DPM measuring speed. Lower is best for more accurate results. I use 1x. This may sound slow but infact it only takes about 3-4 minutes to do the DPM at this speed.
5. You may notice 2 read errors at the end of the reading. This is totally normal and has now become a tell tale sign of the newest forms of the SecuROM protection.
6.You will see in the window 3 buttons "View Log" "Performance Graph" and "Finish" these options allow you to view details of the reading process.
7. Click "Finish" to finish the reading process.
