Not sure where to post this, but it's kind of hack related.
I recently acquired a Blitz copier add-on for my ST that enables you to make back-ups of copy-protected disks. It's come in quite handy and I've also enjoyed the challenge of finding ways to get past difficult protection mechanisms.
Today, I tried to make a copy of Chuckie Egg and the copy-protection not only damaged the target disk but also made my original copy of Chuckie Egg unusable and almost naffed up my disk drive
Is there any way to check a disk beforehand to see if there are any destructive copy-mechanisms and circumvent them before they cause any damage. When I used the disk before, I remember the game occupying an area of RAM after reset that stopped the following game from loading which gave me the impression that the disk wasn't designed to play nice. Is there likely to be any relationship between how a game occupies RAM and copy-protection?
I really like my Blitz copier and want to continue using it, but I can't if there's an ongoing risk of permanent damage to software/hardware.
