ive been trying to make a backup copy of football manager 2008, and dont have a clue where to start, please if any1 can help, i would be very greatful, thanks in advance
The first thing that you need to do is to scan the disc to see what copy protection is on it. You can do this with ProtectionID 5.2 or 6.0
I did this and got CD/DVD checks on the disk. However I think that it has a version of SecuROM on it. How you copy the disk depends on the copy protection.
Failing that you can play the game without the disk using Game Jackal Pro 3. This will read the disk and then emulate it allowing you to remove the disk and put it away safe.
You can also try Alcohol 120%.
There is a 30-day free trial, but to buy it is around $40.
It will let you copy games into your pc, create a virtual drive, & then you can play them without the CD.
You can also play iso files on the virtual drive.
Also, you can copy games to blank cds.
I downloaded the free version called Alcohol 52%. (No time limts, etc…)
It does everything above except burning to blank media.
