    Default How to create an .iso file

    I was just wondering what is the best way to copy an image of my games to my computer. I hate having to use the CD-ROM, because it causes my games to be choppy. I'm almost certain it's the CD-ROM because I downloaded an illegal copy of it on my parents computer before I got my own copmuter and legal copy and the illegal copy ran fine with all graphics settings set to high ... (Note that I don't endorse downloading illegal material and actually went out and bought the game)

    My parents computer was ...

    AMD 1200 MHz T-Bird
    512 MB PC133
    GF4 MX440
    60 GB 7200 RPM HDD
    Windows XP

    My computer is ...

    AMD 2500+
    512 MB PC2700
    GF4 MX440 (same card)
    120 GB 7200 RPM HDD (partitioned into 5 drives)
    Windows XP (w/ ALL the same settings as my parents computer)

    I checked the troubleshooting guide and it said that it was a common problem with CD-ROMS ...

    Anyways, I was hoping to copy the images onto my HDD, then mount them onto the virtual drives created by Daemon Tools so I don't have to use the CD-ROM ...

    Can anyone give me some advice ?

    If you want to make a legal image of your cd a good solution is the use of Alcohol 120%, Blindwrite can help to .

    Just a question. Why would you want to partition a hard drive into five partitions? If one large partition is for some reason too large, why did you buy such a large hard drive?

    I see no reason for a lot of small partitions. And I always buy two hard drives of half size rather than one large hard drive. That way I can use one to back up the other.

    Just my opinion.

    that just depends on how you use what kind of system, eh? My primary machine sports a proud total of eight partitions, and there's still unused HD space... Each of the partitions has a sort of 'primary purpose', i got one only for swap files, i got more than one OS... just depends on how you wanna have your machine look and act like, i'd say.
