My problem is that i cant run a game from an .iso, the game says no disc is inserted. Can i resolve this somehow?

Note that i have been informed that it is prohibited to do this with the intention of sharing with another person, and it is not my intention anymore. I just want to run it from the HDD so that my original disc doesnt get scratched. I have no intention of sharing the images.

It's just the same problem, in a different form.

There are answers, but they cannot be discussed here.

You may have seen the response to other posts, "Google is your friend";

You will find what you're looking for, that way.

I imagine this thread will be closed, if not removed, pretty quickly.

So running a game in any other fashion other than the one intended by the makers of the game is prohibited? I have a hard time believing that, but ill have to re-read the license agreement.
