SimCity 4



Is there a way to copy the CD onto my hard drive? I would like to play without using the disk drive. Would this also increase the speed of gameplay?


They require you to put the disc in the drive to confirm you are a legit owner of the disc, this is their form of copy protection. So the game is already on your HDD and the disc is read just for a couple seconds to verify that you paid for the game.


Some software can be used for this, but there is no guarantee that it will work, mostly with most recent protections.

The main ones are Alcohol 120%, Daemon Tools and Game Jackal.

None of these is free, however :frowning:
