My mac-using friend first showed this to me. He just clicked on an icon and explained that it makes the comp think that there is a cd in, while in reality the program is reading from the hdd. He told me that mac has an in-built tool for creating the images. Is there such a thing in windows xp? If not, can it be done manually? Is there some sort of free downloadable program that can do it? Its annoying to keep switching discs as they get scratched over time, and i dont really mind extra loading time


EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum.

Do you mean something like this?

Some software packages / suites, e.g. Roxio, have 'virtual drive' programs included.

There's also ISO Recorder. It's small, efficient, and integrates right into Windows.

Pardon my ignorance, but don't you still have to 'mount' the image created
by ISO Recorder, with a program such as Daemon Tools, or am I missing
something here.

This usually happens when copying a damaged or a copy protected disk.
Most of the game CDs are copy-protected and cannot be copied.
Does this apply here?

I have used Daemon Tools in the past and it would load a properly burned ISO.

Link here for useful programs (IMGBURN quite popular):

http://iso.snoekonline.com/iso.htm

Can't do much about a damaged disk, LOL.

btw, as per Forum Rules:

"No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures."

Just so we avoid straying into that area.

But if it doesnt say stop its okay right? by the way, it isnt wrong to just make security copy's for personal non-distributive purposes right? otherwise it would be illegal to import cd's into iTunes...

Use of any software depends entirely on the Licence you have for it.

Under classic interpretations of copyright law in the USA, personal backups of copyrighted materials which you own are quite legal. However, under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the creation of such backup copies, even if otherwise legal, may be illegal if the creation involves circumvention of any sort of digital copyright protection scheme, such as disk copy protection.

Copyrights and you.
