    I Need To Copy Games... Not For Piracy™

    I went to the store today and got a little crazy... I bought a lot of games to play.

    Now, I want to make backup copies of the CD's. I did the usual and copied all the files into my hard drive first and then burned them onto a CD-R. Now when I tried playing the game, the computer kept propmting me to insert the CD. The burnt CD was in... and when I stuck in the original CD, it worked fine.

    I'm assuming there is some kind of anti-copy file on the disc that doesn't allow me to make backup's. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    How do I remedy the problem. Is there software that I can use to copy a disc EXACTLY?

    My devices are as follows:

    Plextor UltraPlex 32
    Plextor UltraPlex 40 Max
    Plextor PlexWriter 12/4/32
    Seagate Cheetah 9.1

    The software I use for burning is Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4.02D.

    Anyone?

    There's alot of information here www.*************.com . I use Nero, but I've heard CDRWin is good too.

    Although I haven't used it yet, I heard CloneCD is supposed to be able to make exact duplicates, even copyrights

    Toolbox - I drove that Xterra 3000 miles across the country with a friend through mountains, desert, etc. Did fantastic. I found a couple off-road opportunities, but really didn't want to waste TOO much time.

    We had a Playstation and T.V. hooked up in the back for whoever wasn't driving.

    Didnt your Plextor drives come with any software, of they did you should ahve a program called CD Dupe I thinl, that should make an exact copy of any cd. If you dont have it then try clone cd.

    akmodi,

    I'll let you know if I need further help on this.

    DrunkN_MastR,

    I'll try downloading CloneCD and see how it does.

    Flavio,

    I can't tell you how much I like that car. Since the new Land Cruiser is out of my range, I'm praying that Nissan Philippines will strat importing the Xterra.

    aug1516,

    I have DiscDupe but I've only tried it once and I got a buffer underrun. Haven't tried it since. Maybe it's because I was trying to copy directly from a CD at 12X? I'll try again.

    fx,

    I'm not sure if this is an illegal question? I'll leave it here a while and see what glussier says before I close it myself or he shuts it down.

    Thanks for all the help everyone.

    Making personal back-up copies of games is perfectly legal. As long as you own the original CD.

    I was concerned initially, but so far, so good. Just keep it legal guys; that's all I ask.

    It is perfectly legal. glussier would lock it anyway because that's the way he is.

    Um. I may be missing something here but is glussier a moderator of this forum?

    he has made his opinion on what is or is not legal on this topic clear and as huge says, there is nothing wrong here.
