How to backup Command & Conquer Generals

Hi everyone, I hope that someone can help me. I have recently bought Command & Conquer Generals orignal for my son and he has a bad track record of ruining new software, so I wonder if anyone can tell me what software to use to make a backup of the original cd and how to use it.

Thanks in advance

There are many programs.
such as;

Clone cd
Alcohol 120%

Thanks for the advice

I have the same issue. I tried using Clone CD, but teh resulting copy would not work. The autorun menu would load up but once you tried to run the game, it would ask you re insert the cd and try again. The log showed lots of ‘writing weak sector’ entries towards the end of the burning process.

Any help would be appreciated!


I used Clone CD for both Generals and Generals Zero Hour and no problem. I just used the default profile of Game Protected CD. You can also just leave the image and try using an emulator like DAEMON tools. That’s what I do.
