Laptop gaming from DVD.

Hi everyone, my son is laptop gaming - which requires the dvd to be in use all of the time he is gaming, the games do not require an internet connection other than the first install. Is there a method by which the games can function without requiring the dvd to be running all the time .. ?
As ever - thanks to everyone.

Possibly but probably illegal ie copying the dvd to the hard drive

Is there any software that might perform this task ? I am not trying to make copies of the dvd , just to avoid having to have the dvd drive running all the time & wearing components out ? Thanks.

I want to make a back up of the programs & data on my laptop(in case it crashes again). Can I do this in vista ? or do I need another program ? The "C" drive shows 35Gb used. Do I need an additional hard drive with this capacity ? Thanx.
