[B]Sorry (newbie question)…how do you determine whether a CD gaming
software is protected?[/B] And secondly, what do you do when you know that it’s protected?

[B]If I was able to make a personal backup copy of the game using CloneCD,
does that not necessary by default overide any copy protection thing?? [/B]
Here’s the thing, I was able to make backup copies of EA sports NHL 2004,
Backyard Football and Backyard Skateboarding.
Loading the games using the newly made backup copies onto my computer
works just fine, both backyard football and backyard skateboarding actually
doesn’t require the cd to run (but am making a backup copy so that I can
preserve the original).
[B]HOWEVER[/B], with EA sports NHL 2004, I successfully loaded/installed it
onto my computer. But when it comes to actually playing the game using the
backup copy, [B]it doesn’t work and I get the following message:[/B]
[B]USING the original store bought one, I am able to run the game perfectly.
SO I AM A BIT CONFUSED HERE[/B]
Here are a list of games that I recently purchased (I’m also a newbie to the
PC gaming world). For one thing they were not expensive.
