i have seen a product that takes files from a disk and puts them on the computer...it then runs the game without the disk....it is supposed to make the game run better...does it work?
um, no, because all having this prog does(if you did a full install) allows you to play with out a disk, these are called cracks, and are ILLEGAL!!
LOL! How much more obvious can you get? :fistpunch:
actually, there are legitmate, supported, products that allow a user to use an app/game without a cd.
Try the GD off topic forums

Just a virtual drive program.
Goto www.download.com and type virtual CD drive!
I use it all the time so that I never have to switch my CD's all the time. It's not a crack, and it's completely legal since I own all the cd's.
p.s. cracking a game is fine if you have the actual game! I use cracks all the time for games that I only play offline (Combat mission series for one). Last thing I need to worry about is trying to find a CD in the godforsaken mess that is my room!
All it does is tell the game not to look for the CD when it runs. This helps the game run smoother since the HDD runs many times faster than the CDROM does. You still have to install the game and use the key, then run the no CD patch.
Stuff like daemon tools is hardly illegal. Remember you need a valid CD key to play online anyway. It just stops people having to find the CD.
Then theres the first bunch of retail BF1942 CDs that were made with cheap material, and ended up with hundreds of people having discs that literally cracked under use. Fun.
PanzerAceum, no, because all having this prog does(if you did a full install) allows you to play with out a disk, these are called cracks, and are ILLEGAL!!
Cracks ARE NOT illegal if you own the game. They may infringe a minor clause in the EULA but it's unlikely anyone's going to have a pissy fit about it because around 35% of people use no-CD hacks. SafeDisc is notoriously slow, and swapping the CD-rom out when it's unnecessary is really annoying, especially on one-drive machines.
