Backup doesn't run on DVD/CDROM

Question: I’ve backed up several programs and they will only run on my CD-R (they run perfectly). I’ve tried installing and running them from my CD-ROM drive. I’m allowed to install, but running them stalls the run process (ie the drive reads a little bit, then shuts down). I’d like to know why this is happening? Most recently on Battle Realms and Max Payne.

thats because your writer is probably capable of making SD2 protected cds that work on your recorder.
but for more help tell us more about your computer like whats your cd recorder
