Quicknote: How to preserve your gaming CDs


I guess most of the people know about this software, but for the newbies out there that have a shitload of cds for their games that is getting scratched or worse, there is a program that allowes you to hide away those cds in a safe environment, and use whats called an image of the cd instead to start or install your games with.

I’m talking about Daemon Tools (lite). This is a virtual cdrom drive maker, that emulates a cdrom drive for your machine where you can mount cd-images, and your machine will think its a normal cd drive.

The only other thing you need is a program to make your cds into virtual images. Nero Burning Rom and most other burning software has this ability, and there is also a lot of specialised software just for this purpose.

Just do a quick search on download.com or softpedia.com. Just remember your looking for software that creates an image from a physical cd, not the other way around.
