how can you copy CD games for your computer onto your computer, so that you dont have to keep using the cd if you want to play on it??

You don't.

That's why they're on CD.

You get a CD Emulator, This then will copy the CD and run as if the CD is in the drive. But faster

From woodchip's link: "3. Most types of copy protected CDs cannot be used by the emulator." - so I assume game CDs will not copy? G

yeh, i have just read that on the site, but ill see if it works anyway, or if not ill have to download some sort of software that will over ride the copy protect

ok so i have downloaded it and im on task 9 from the readme. it says
"9. Navigate to the image file, select it, and click "OK". UNC naming conventions should not be used, however mapped network drives should be OK."

Where is the image file, what is it?

"2. Your CDs have to be converted to ISO files. That is not as hard as it sounds. Programs like Nero can do it, but there is another free tool for XP that will let you create ISO files in a flash. For more information see click here. G
