RE: Burning game CD's

Use a disk copier ... i.e. copy CD to CD complete (Adaptec CD Copier) not individual files. Right now there are no (known) copy protected game CDs, only few music CDs. The music CDs are supposed to include 'hiss' and 'clicks' and 'pops' when you copy them. Someone will soon break that as well.

If you don't have another CDROM or DVD drive, you might have to create a disk image of the CD you want to copy and then create the CD. Make sure you use correct format, i.e. data CD for games etc.

I haven't seen a copy protection scheme that has worked flawlessly other than a threat of prosecution through a license agreement.

This is also getting to a stage where it is frightening ... last week Salon had an article where a couple had their cable modem access cut by Ti**War** company after MPAA found that someone had loaded a copyrighted movie for download using their IP address (spoofing). All this time the couple was on vacation and it took them lot of phone calls to get their access back.
