Second copy of disk for network play

  haydenbech 02:38 17 Feb 2008

I just connected two of my computers on a network and I want to use the connection to play network games with my brother, but I only have one copy of all my games and unfortunately they all require the CD to play. I was wondering how I can get around this problem - I tried using a CD burner, but I guess they're protected. Could I use a program that emulates the CD on one computer or can I use software to make a copy (being only for personal use, it should be okay to do so)?

Thanks in advance!

If the Game disk in question is Copy Protected, How are you going to get it onto a CD Emulator Program.

It's 2 copies of the game.

Frustratingly, it isn't really permitted to make copies, whatever the reason, so network play requires two or more game disks.

There are some sites where you can download cracks which claim to allow the game to be played without the disk in the drive. Again, strictly illegal, and there's no guarantee that what you're downloading isn't something nasty.
