I’ve just bought a notebook PC, and I want to be able to play my old games on it, specifically, I’m using SW Ep1 Racer as my test case.
I have a separate DVD player from which to rip the disc, but don’t really want to have to leave that switched on for hours while I’m playing when it’s hardly being used.
I know all about virtual drives etc, so I’ve ripped the CD to an .iso using Nero.
I’ve found a lot of posts saying just mount the iso using [insert ubiquitous software here] and bob’s your uncle.
This is fine in terms of mounting the iso and installing the game, but when I try to play the game it just asks me to insert the CD in the drive.
My question is, how do I make the game recognise my virtual drive as the CD-ROM? Is it something intrinsic to the game that makes it behave like this, or is there a config setting somewhere?
I’ve tried: VCDControl, Gamedrive, virtual clonedrive, magicISO.
Any help would be appreciated, even if you tell me it can’t be done.
