Hi. I was wondering, I just got this stupid little game. But I play it all the time anyways, hehe. But it requires a cd. And it's getting annoying putting the cd in all the time to play a game I know is only like 50MB. So, how can I burn an image to my hardrive and us a virutal mounting device to play it without the cd? I tried nero but the disk is copywrited. Thanks for any help.

Rig:
XP Barton 2500+, A7N8X- Deluxe, 1GB OCS pc3200 (2.5-3-3-7)
Volcano 7+ with OCZ ultra II paste, XP professional, ATI 9600 pro
Antec 400W w/ 4 case fans installed.

what game is it? there might be a no-cd patch (allows you to play the game without inserting the cd) for it. check out <A HREF="http://awpost.com/games/gcw.shtml" target="_new">game copy world</A> to see there is a patch for the game.

Use CloneCD to make an image, then use Daemon to mount it. I think there's a step in between but I can't remember it.

I highly recommend a program called CDSpace (version 4.1) you can download if for free from download.com <A HREF="http://download.com.com/3000-2248-8421233.html?tag=lst-..." target="_new"> FILE</A> it makes an image AND lets you mount it meaning it will be exactly like it's in the CD only it works faster and doensn't use the CD. It's called a virtual drive and it looks like a CD-ROM when you open My Computer.

I had a much better usertitle but was caught trying to hack me a better one so I got my current title as a punishment
