    Because you copied a game the anti-pirate gods hath struck down your ODD, now you have to buy ten copies of the game you copied and give them all away to orphans.
  3. Proper eng ?
    My system jst ignored me due to the "english" i used good joke.
    Ok i think i shud do that buy and give but what will they(orfn) do with dos disc they cant even use it as a plate as it has a "hole" in the center :-@
  4. yup. I've had that happen.

    afterwards my dad took all the pieces and put tomb-raider 4 back together!!!

    I was installing the game.

    anyways I agree with mousemonkey, go buy 10 copies of the game!
  5. Lets use pen drives and iso's to make our home green
  6. yeah you do that and then learn some english

    hey my CPU went fry fry inside
  7. Dunno. Probably a poor quality CD or DVD that shattered as the drive span up.
  8. IF you have an old cd / dvd it can happen, or a overused one

    i remember diablo II discs going like that, because ppl didn't install the full game and the music was constantly loaded from disc, and things just died

    i always rip cd/dvds, legit or not to hdd with isos to prevent this exact occurrence. but hey I have 4000 GB (4 TB) JBOD configuration storage setup, so I can archive any dvd / cd I come across
  9. Yeah thats a good idea big hdd
  10. it's the only way to go imo, and the thing is likely to grow when the 1 tb drives go to the 60 dollar CAD segment :P

    I've always done the same - since the mid 80's - when it actually made a difference in game performance back when games used the Disk during gameplay instead of just as a security feature to ensure it was an original - since HDD performance has always been faster than CD\DVD player having the .iso on a HDD made the disk access much faster - plus the added benefit of not letting your original discs get scratched and become unuseable since they are tucked away in their jewel cases and placed in a drawer. And have not seen any reason to change that since then (other than the good old game manufacturers and their attempts to keep you from being able to do it -though there have always been methods around those and probably always will be !) - For awhile before DVD's became the norm it also made it alot easier on those games that had 4 or 5 CD's that you had to keep swapping in game !
