4-32] I'm getting a message about 100 form transitions

(2000/05/05)

When attempting to copy certain discs, Easy CD Creator (as of v3.x) will
say something like:

"The current track contains more than 100 form transitions. Easy CD
Creator cannot handle more than 100 form transitions on a single track.
The disc cannot be copied."

This appears to be a form of copy protection, where a disc uses both FORM-1
and FORM-2 on a CDROM/XA MODE-2 disc.

One user reported that this only happens when trying to copy a Playstation
game by first copying the tracks to the hard drive. If you make a copy
directly from one disc to the other, the errors won't occur.

According to Roxio, the message can also occur if the source drive is
reporting more than 100 tracks on the disc, or if the source drive is
defective in some specific way.
