Is this possible?

I was wondering if there is a way to convert multiple CD images onto DVD disk. I am trying to back up my games and don't have anymore CD's left so I figure I will try to consolidate space by putting it on DVD. Is it possible to put multiple CD's into one image file for a DVD? If so, what software would I need to do this? I currently have Nero 6 but don't know if that will work.

If each game only requires one disc to install I guess it would be theretically possible to simply put each one in its own folder on the dvd. If you want to consolodate a multi cd game into one dvd it can usually be done but it takes a fair amount of time and effort. I don't think I could explain it in any reasonable amount of time/space here.

would I need to put each disk into an ISO file and then it's own folder?

No, just copy the contents of the disc to a folder on your computer. When you get enough together to equal about 4.7gb burn that to a dvd. That will only work with games that are single disc.

will run into problems with cd protection though. he may have to use a no cd crack after installing the games.

this is my boomstick!

For games that are multiple CD's is it possible to put all the CD's into 1 ISO file and then burn it to DVD? I have winISO but I'm not sure if I am able to do that.

As far as the no cd cracks, that is fine with me because I usually use those anyways since I hate having to search for the CD's and then swap when I play a different game. It's much easier to just click the icon and play instead of having to change CD's all the time.

It is sometimes possible to combine multi cd games but it is sort of long and complicated and the chance of it working is fairly slim. I have gotten it to work a few times but the majority of the time it doesn't work. I think the last game it worked for me was starwars battle front.
If you look at the file directory of the cds you will notice that they all are fairly similar. If you combine all the files in all those directorys it "might" work. You will also need to combine the contents of files though such as the autorun files and others that appear on every disc. I think that is about as good as I can explain it. If you don't want to waste a bunch of dvds I recommend not trying it.

Thanks for the suggestion Folken. I think I'll just stick with the way you told me to do it the first time. Thanks again.
