I know there are programs out there that emulate cd-rom drives and allow you mount images of cd-roms....Alcohol 120%, Daemon Tools, Virtual Drive and so on. Thing is...it seems that some of the games will not run properly if you have one of these programs installed. I know when I got "Call of Duty"...I had Alcohol 120% loaded and after I installed the game and tried to launch it...it got an error message telling me to make sure Disc 1 was in the drive...and it was...and I looked up the error and it was due to Alcohol interferring with the SafeDisc protection system or something. I removed it and the game started up fine. My question is...if I had been using a mounted image of the first cd of COD...would it have worked ok? If not...what good does it do to have the cd emulation programs if ya cant really use them?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
