[QUOTE=cdnkcomeau;2104689]Yes I do have 2 disks of the Sims but 1 is broken. So we only have 1 disk to use to play the game as you need to insert disk 1 to play. I am not looking to copy it for any other reason than my little girl already scratched 1 disk beyond repair and I know it will happen again but refuse to buy a 3rd game so she can continue to play.
I just want to back up disk #1 of the game… I know it can be done and it’s not breaking any rules to make a back up. I have been trying to do this for a few months now and had to hide the disk from the kids.
I have tried Nero 7, dvd decryptor, dvd shrink, clone cd, clone dvd, fancy dvd,
I DO NOT appreciate the comment:

I don’t think that statement was directed at you, just a general statement.
Is it a cd or a dvd? If it is a cd, look at it through the light. Does it look like the are any spots of light (where the recording surface/label side is damaged)? There is very little protection to the recording surface of a cd, and if it is damaged, there is no possible way to fix it. If not or if it is a dvd, check out the copy protection forum (there are many copy protections, and there usually is a certain procedure for a specific game/protection. If the recommended methods fail, you might have to try and repair the scratches.
