Ok, so I spend a LOT of money on PC Games. Which I don't mind. I love to play 'em. Problem is, my kids love to play them, too. Yesterday we went to Wal-Mart to buy (no joking) our THIRD copy of The Sims. The previous two were ruined by scratches.
I've nevery really copied games, 'cause I don't mind buying them for myself. I took a picture of the games I could easily reach on top of my computer desk and threw them on the floor to take a quick picture to attach. I wanted to prove I'm not some thief trying to learn how to steal games. This is only a tiny sample of the games we've purchased just for our PCs - never mind for our Xbox and Wii.
What I'm asking for is help, if any of you know how, of how to BACK UP the games I purchased. That way when my kids scratch Heroes of Might and Magic V, I won't blow a gasket at having to blow another $50 to buy it again.
I own CloneCD (purchased it an AnyDVD) and I downloaded Daemon Tools, but I can't figure out, for example, how do I either copy or make an image and play from that of Civilization IV?
Thanks so much for any assistance!
