play games from hard drive?  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I was wondering if there is any way that I can play a game from my hard drive instead of through my disc drive. Don't worry i'm not trying to rip off any games or anything, its just a pain to carry around all of my game discs with me if I suddenly decide to start playing a different game and need to change discs. Would it work to copy the game disc to my hard drive, and then install it from my hard drive, or would it still look in my disc drive for the CD?? I'm sure there has to be some way to make it work. Thanks a ton in advance guys.

Bypassing ANY security device is AGAINST the TOS. Running a game of a hard drive means you have the bypass the copyright protection of a CD or DVD ROM.

The 'excuse' that owning the game would allow you to do so does NOT work. The fact that you buy a game does NOT allow you to crack it. It's against the license agreement of the game, and against the law.

Simple as that.

Thread closed. Thank you
