I posted this in the Newbie forum, but no one answered. Could someone here give it a shot. I am sorry if I am breaking a rule about posting in two forums. Just want to get an answer.
I have successfully made a Virtual Drive with Daemon Tools on my PC... and placed an image of Morrowind on it, so that I can get around the constant checking for CD.
I know that there are hacks to the exe file that do basically the same thing, but I figured that it was time that I learned how to do some of this stuff.
Anyway, I figured that my next step was to make an "archive" copy, which worked more or less. When I inserted the NEW disk into the CD ROM, it comes up with the splash screen that allows you start playing. Problem is, I was not sure if it was because of the Virtual drive, or the archived disk.
So, rather than unistall it on my machine (i know this is going to sound crooked... sorry), I took it to work, and tried to install it on my work PC (please, no lectures... I wanted to test my theory). It wouldn't go through the install. I could see all of the files on the disk when I read it from explorer, but things seemed not to have copied onto the NEW disk.
I did notice that when making the backup disk, my buffer ran down to 0% when it was about 99% complete with the burn. So I tried it again, same thing, then again, and guess what... same thing.
I am using:
GeForce 4 Ti 4400
_NEV DV-5500A (internal DVD CD Rom)
HP CD-Writer+ 8290 (external USB burner)
V386 STEALTH DVD (virtual drive with Morrowind)
What am I doing wrong (other than the moral issues of testing on my work PC).
