CD / DVD Image Ripping?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I read something on the site a few days ago about somebody ripping the images of their games and dvd's so they didn't have to use the cds. Please do enlighten :-D. I so want an excuse to send back 2 of my DVDRoms while I can still RMA them!

You can use Alchohol 120, Or MagicISO and MagicDisc to make an Image of those games. Then mount it as a virtual drive and it will make a new like F Drive and it will say the cd is in there and let you play it.

ah, beat to it

although note that many modern games have protections that Alcohol and other apps cannot bypass... yet. it may change down the road as updates to the image-making apps come in.

but ya, making back-ups of the game discs and running off those has helped me keep all my PC games all happy and nearly scratch/damage free ^_^ b
if you've got a DVD burner you can even stick multiple images in .iso format to a single DVD. similar to what i did with my old C&C games.

I did this with the game IL-2 Sturmovik. I ripped it using Nero, and then I mount the DVD image using Daemon tools. It won't work just like that however, then I needed to using a masking program called YASU, which blocks the piracy protection detection built into the DVD / disc image, and allows me to play without the actual disc. I haven't tried it for any other games, but I will experiment and get back to you.

Lol plenty of posts but simply rip the .iso from the CD.
Then use a program to mount the image to a virtual drive. DaemonTools is a simple, effective program to use for that.

DaemonTools is free too =). If theres protection then just use a free masking program like YASU.
