I am looking for a program that'll let me copy a disc onto my computer, and mount it as a disc image or something. That way I can play a game without the need for the disc.
Anyone know of a program like that?

I've been woundering the same thing, but I can't find a way to do it in disk utility. Maybe its some copy protection on my disk?

Yeah, sometimes CDs won't let you copy the files off of them.
I've managed to get around that sometimes, but it seems to be working for Diablo II.
i've always wondered what you use to make disk images, someone had told that you use Stuffit, but I was skeptical of that.
Thanks for the help trpnmonkey41, and good luck with the permissions thing bluesmudge.

You can do it with Disk Utility or Toast. Note, some games wont play from an image without a hack/patch. They check the hardware for an actual disk in the drive.

Well, I just dug out the disk, and it has snapped right in half.
Guess I'm going to have to buy it again, unless I can download the media somewhere.
