I am getting a new hd soon and I will have a lot of room, so I would like to learn how to make a image of a game just so that I dont have to keep sticking in the cd all the time. I tried before with iso buster but I could not get the image made right. It kept asking me if I wanted to replace data with ennrrroius sectors or something like that, and I dinnt know wat to day. Also i did make a image right with nero6 1 time, of halo for pc, but then I could not play the game from it as it still told me to put in the cd, even though I had the fake vitural drive thingy up. If its simple steps or a single program, please post it here. If its more complicated please give me a link to more info about it, or perhaps tell me the forums I should be using. I wasnt sure where to put this as it seems to cover different things.
whether you will be able to play the game from an image/virtual drive depends on, among other things, the type of protection used by the original, your cd burner brand/model, whether you can get a decent, working image of the game in the first place…plus the latest game are coded to look for virtual drives, when they find one installed even the original wont play in some instances. take a look in the copy protection forum, also @ makeabackup.com also my guides @ http://www.network54.com/Forum/336827
Thanks for those guides ill check those out when I start to try this again, but basically your saying that each game may have to be researched and approached differently according to the type of protections it uses?
