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?


#2

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.


#3

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:
