Enter the matrix

is it the play disk only that is protected or are the other 3 as well

I believe its just the play disc, but think about it. Why bother protecting an install disc with Securom NEW 4.8x?

Why bother??

Heres a reason, its pain in the rear. This would make a lot of stuff harder to backup.

Quite true cloakdoa.

But if we can already backup the play disc, then it should only take a little bit longer to backup the install disc.

I dont claim to know many games, but Ive only ever heard of Red Alert 2 having protection on the install disc, and the play disc. Never played the game so Im not sure.
